Dandelion

Hi all,
Well, it's Sunday night, and most people's weekends are coming to an end :-(
I still have tomorrow off, so I am planning on getting stuff done in the day time.

I wanted to get crafty today, but I felt like doing something other than my usual colouring.  I'm playing around with heat embossing, and here's what I came up with:

My card base is Chocolate Chip CS.  I used a piece of a rusty coloured cardstock, but I can't remember the name (it was one of the SU In Colors from a couple years ago), and I embossed it with the Cuttlebug Stylized Flowers folder.  I sponged around the edges with Walnut Stain Distress ink, and matted it with black and white CS.  I also wrapped some Soft Suede polka dot ribbon around that, and added some white pearls to the corners.
I stamped Dandelion Wisps in Versamark onto the rusty cardstock and embossed it with white embossing powder.  I cut it out with Label 7 Nesties, and sponged that with the Walnut ink as well.  I really like how the white pops out from the coloured paper.  Definitely gonna try that again!

Don't forget about our Bellarific Friday challenge this week, to make a card with our 6th sketch!


Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
Happy Monday to all those going back to work :-)

Wow this is gorgeous Robin! Love that you embossed this in white on the rusty c/s - it just makes the image pop! Well done!!

FANTASTIC! I tried to do a heat embossed version of this stamp too but it ended up in the trash can instead. Looks like I need a Robin-lesson since yours is stunning. Love the bold red and the distress ink undertones!
