Colour Dare 397 - Dandelion Hello

Welcome to Colour Dare 397! 

This week we have an inspiration photo for you. How cute is this scene? 

Choose any colours from the photo - back, white and all other neutrals are free to use. 

I created a very simple card for this challenge. I began with two stamps sets and white cardstock.  The images were stamped using versamark ink and then embossed with white embossing powder. Using three ink colours, I sponged over the embossing until the white images were revealed. I used Lagoon, Glacier and Raspberry inks for this step. Finally, two stitched rectangle frames were cut to surround the sponged section and that centre section was the inner part of a stitched rectangle die. 

Come and join us at Colour Dare and show us how you use the inspiration photo above. 
You have two weeks to link up your project. 
We can’t wait to see what you create!
