I watercolored the blue mulberry paper a bit on the edges. I used a Stampin' Up! aqua painter and SU Night of Navy ink. I created the blue splatters with a children's Blo Pen that I bought at Michaels a long time ago. I stitched the edge of the background paper with my Janome Sew Mini Sewing Machine. After I handcut the dragonfly, I gently bent the wings upward and then pulled outward by holding the wing between my thumbnail and my middle finger to get them to arch and bend. Realistic looking!
