Dandelion Wishes Quadrupled for Freshly Made Sketches

One of my favourite sets from the Annual Catalogue is a little sleeper called Dandelion Wishes and when I saw the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge this week, that's where my mind went right away! I thought it would be perfect for this sketch.

I mean those dandelion seed heads were just made for inchies, don't you think? Here's what happened:

  • Although you can't see it very well, the background panel in Pool Party has been embossed using the Tufted Dynamic Embossing Folder. It makes a luxuriant background for the images.
  • I stamped four of the main images using Coastal Cabana, Flirty Flamingo, Highland Heather, and Granny Apple Green. I added a watercolour brush stroke from Beautiful You stamp set behind each of them, stamping off at least once. Pool Party behind the Coastal Cabana, Powder Pink behind the Flirty Flamingo, Soft Sea Foam behind the Granny Apple Green and the same Highland Heather, but stamped off three times behind the Highland Heather.
  • They were die cut with the Stitched Shape Framelit of the appropriate size and backed with a scallop square from the Layering Squares Framelits.
  • The sentiment is from the Dandelion Wishes as well. It's stamped on Whisper White with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and die cut using the Stitched Labels framelits. I was able to use the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon to pass through the holes in the label and pass around the card to tie in a bow on the left side. I used some Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to fix the label where I wanted it.
This was a really fun card to make and I glory in the colours! (There's a unicorn in me somewhere, waiting to burst free, I'm sure!) That label die is my new favourite sentiment shape now I think!!
