For Di

Morning all, it really is a foul day out there. Hope you are all keeping safe.
Although I have been making I haven't been blogging 'cos all my creations have been for DT purposes. My friend Di thought I was poorly, so this post is for her.

I have a memory of seeing a similar card on line sometime ago but don't know where it was and I can't find it again! Anyhow, I thought I would have a play and see what came of it. This is it:-


When I saw the original it reminded me of a stamp set I bought in Harrogate a few years ago that I haven't really used. It's an Inkylicious stamp called Dandelion Wishes.

I used a piece of white A5 card folded to create a landscape card stamping the larger dandelion head with an embossing ink then heat embossed  in white embossing powder. I repeated this with the floating seeds which disappear off the page. The same thing for the other 2 seed heads on some scrap. The greeting from Personnel Impressions was treated similarly. I looked long and hard for a suitable greeting in my stash as I wanted something to do with wishes - blowing a dandelion clock to wish by. 
Using Faded Jean and Broken China distress ink, I inked one corner of the main card, fading out the ink with a clean bit of foam. The same for the other two heads which I then cut out using a Woodware square punch. The squares were then mounted on the base card using foam pads.

I shall enter it in the following challenges:-
As you like it - Your favourite CAS design
CASology - Contrast
Don't forget there's still time to enter our monochrome challenge over at Cardz4Guyz.

Bye for now, thanks for popping in.
