Dandelion Whisps

It's a Sweet Sunday and Karen has another fabulous sketch for us (SSSC159)

So while I was at my LSS this week they received Faber Castell's Gelatos - so naturally I had to buy the entire set (really I had a coupon how could I say no?!)  Naturally I had to "play" with them right away!

For my card I coloured Stamping Bella's Dandelion Wisps with 3 of the Gelatos then misted the stamp with water and stamped the image onto water colour paper.  The two gelatos used on the dandelion are metallics (Gold Champagne & metallic melon)  so they have a wonderful shimmer to them.  I then inked around the image with Distress inks in old paper and peacock feather from the spring edition.

As you can see I flipped the sketch to work with my image & trimmed the image down to work with the sketch.  The base yellow layer is embossed to match the ds paper from Lily Bee designs Happily Lost and then inked with distress ink in scattered straw.

Please stop by the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers Blogs and our wonderful Guest designer to see their creations.  If you play along with us this week remember to link your card on Karen's blog.

Thanks for stopping by & for all the Canadian bloggers out there enjoy your long weekend!!
