Another outing for the new stamp set from Stampin Up Dandelion Wishes - I can't put it down at the moment. This card combines two challenges - a colour challenge from Fab Friday and a summer embossing challenge from TGIF. These are the colours we were to use from Fab Friday- I had all of them bar Mint Macaron - I know I had an ink in this colour but it's disappeared. I did have some ribbon left though.
I started off my card by using the Tim Hotlz blending tool to blend some Mossy Meadow on to white cardstock. Inspired by the image for the TGIF challenge I used the sun from Kinda Eclectic and using Powder Pink I clear embossed it. It gives off a lovely sheen to the card. My PP ink is very dry and it sometimes needs a helping hand from Versamark to help it show up. I used Tranquil Tide stamped off for the dandelion stamps. The sentiment is from Jar of Love and this was inked in Tranquil Tide but not stamped off so it's a bit darker. Some coloured rhinestones in the daffodils finishes off the card. I hope it looks summery enough for the challenge. We are certainly experiencing hot weather here in the UK and melting - it's even too hot to craft especially when you take into account our homes do not have air-con!
What we need is a good summer thunderstorm to water all the gardens and cool us down. I never thought I'd hear myself say we needed rain lol!
