Hi and thank you for visiting my blog today.
I know there are various names that this plant is called, but I think that Dandelion Clock is maybe the most common. I am so pleased at how this card turned out, I really love it. I used an image from the Shimmer Detailed Laser Cut Specialty Paper again, but wanted to add colour to it this time. I gently sponged my Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad directly onto the image, (using scrap paper underneath of course!) letting the ink dry each time until I had the desired coverage – I did this three times in total to achieve the solid blackness. The shimmer from the paper is still there as I had hoped, the picture below shows this off better, and then I had my light bulb moment – an ink blended background. Being a new demonstrator, my collection of Stampin’ Up! ink is a little limited at the moment, but I did have the basic necessary colours: Daffodil Delight, Rococo Rose, Highland Heather and Balmy Blue. There is a nice orangey colour which comes through rather than the Rococo Rose it should be, I assume this is because it is inked over some of the Daffodil Delight ink, and I also think the Mango Melody card base enhances this. I felt a sentiment would be detrimental to the overall look of the card, so chose not to use one. To finish, I mounted the inky background onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, then onto a Mango Melody card base.
