  1. Fold the light brown striped cardboard in half to create a card 6.9 inches x 4.9 inches; use the ruler to make the fold neat and smooth.
  2. Turn the 5.7 inch x 4.3 inch white cardboard so that the 5.7 inch sides will be at the top and bottom.

  4. Using the watercolors, start by painting a design on the white cardboard. Start with the water, and ensure that the paint is applied darker towards the sea-line, as to create depth.
  5. Using green watercolor, as well as a combination of yellow-green and yellow-orange-green, add reeds to the edge of the water.
  6. At the bottom of the reeds, add small flowers with the acrylic paint in two colors: Blush Pink Pearl and magenta.
  7. Paste the dragonfly above the water.
