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.
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!
