AH 276 - Dandelion Wishes Birthday

Welcome to another sketch at Atlantic Hearts! 

I decide to play around a little bit with this week's sketch - I rotated it, changed the direction of the sentiment and also changed the direction of the cross piece. 

One of the papers from the Beautiful Friendship paper pack is the background but I wanted to use the Dandelion Wishes stamp from SU to create the main image. That was done using the emboss resist technique. It was stamped using Versamark and then embossed with white embossing powder. I used Smoothie and Canary inks to cover the paper, bringing out the image. Once the two colours were blended, the final results looks much more orange than the ink colours really are... The ribbon is really old Smoothie ribbon from many years ago. 

Come and join us at Atlantic Hearts and show us how you interpret the sketch shown above. You have until Sunday evening to link up your project.
