I have been playing with the Dandelion Wishes stamp set a lot lately. I haven't been able to put it down. I thought it would be perfect for this colour challenge.

I wanted to give the impression of the Dandelion clocks blowing away against a summer sunset. The dandelions are embossed in silver to give a pretty contrast.

How I Made It

I wanted a watercolour wash background to give the impression of a summer sky. I used an Aqua Painter (this is a paint brush with a water filled chamber) to lay plenty of water down on a watercolour paper layer. I then picked up the colour from the Coastal Cabana Ink pad with the Aqua Painter and laid it down. I added the ink from the Powder Pink Ink Pad in the same way . I used less of the Powder Pink. My water colour paper is 9.5 cm x 13.8 cm.

The base of the card is in Shaded Spruce (14.8 cm x 10.5 cm)  and the next layer is Coastal Cabana (14.3 cm x 10 cm)

I have stamped the dandelion clocks in clear Versamark Embossing Ink and then heat embossed with Silver Embossing Powder.  I have used the adhesive rhinestones for the centres of the dandelion clocks to add a little sparkle.

I have stamped the Sending Well Wishes Your Way onto Whisper White card using Coastal Cabana ink and stamped some of the little clocks in Powder Pink around. I wanted to created a label so I have used the oh so useful Everyday Label punch and raised it on a couple of Dimensionals. I have added some of the new Whisper White Bakers twine between the layers and tied a simple knot along the top.

I have added a Whisper White layer (14.3 cm x 10 cm) inside the card and stamped the dandelion both inside the card,
