Dandelion Wishes


Welcome! Day two of teasers for My Favorite Things brings news of a new designer...from our very own design team! Yay Mona, I just love your products!

Also new - Mix-able Stencils! I've used one on my card today.

My card started with a billboard - yup, a billboard. We were out this weekend and on the highway I noticed a billboard with a black chevron background and a bright pink panel. I filed it away and used it as inspiration for this card!

I laid the Large Chevron Stripes Stencil on some Sweet Tooth cardstock, and sprayed with some chalkboard mist. I wanted to grunge it up a little, so mixed some Black Licorice and Razzleberry reinker with water and splashed it on.

The Dandelion was inked with Razzleberry then rolled in Grape Jelly for a two tone effect. I love Mona's sentiments - I've stamped them on a Fishtail Flag STAX I've cut twice to make it double ended. It's hard to see in photos, but the Razzleberry panel was stamped with the chicken wire from Distressed Background Blocks in versamark ink for a little texture.

I noticed this leftover piece from the bottom of my sprayed background looked cool so I stamped the Dandelion head on it, and repeated my sentiment treatment.
