I Stamped Serendipity's Dandelion Background with black ink
and heat embossed on a piece of cardstock.
Using the metallic Gelatos, I pressed a bit in the center of each flower and
spread the color outwards with my finger finishing up with
a damp waterbrush toward the tips of the petals.
I found that wetting my finger on a baby wipe helped with the spreading.
The butterfly and sentiment looked fine but I thought it needed
a little something else so I splattered with Memento black re-inker.
I used my box to splatter but still ended up with splatters on my shirt,
hands and even my feet! LOL, I'm still not sure how I did that!
It did add extra interest to the card.
Lots of great use of crayons and Gelatos from our
Design Team and Guest Designer Jenny.
And many more fantastic samples in the gallery.
Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.
