Dandelions are so pretty when they are fluffy white, but such a nightmare in my yard.  Well, Stampin’ Up!’s new Dandelion Wishes stamp sets lets me enjoy them with out the frustration of dealing with them in my lawn.  I’ll admit, I kind of overlooked it at first.  But, I’m so glad it caught my attention.

Dandelion Wishes - Center Stage Stamping

For today’s card I combined Dandelion Wishes with Stitched All Around (sentiment) and Gallery Grunge (background).  For the main panel, I embossed the dandelion image in white embossing powder.  Next, I did a water color wash.  I started with Mango Melody and let it dry.  Then I added the Coastal Cabana.  I really like how it turned out.  I love water color wash backgrounds.  Each one you do is unique.  I mounted this panel on a strip of mango dots from the Brights Designer Series Paper stack. This was added to the card base that I had stamped with this great image from the Gallery Grunge set.  Finally, I added the white embossed sentiment on a piece of Mango Melody card stock.

I definitely prefer this kind of dandelion over the ones in my yard!

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Stamping!
