Peaceful Wishes

Hello! Here is another card I shared at the release party last week. I used Many Wishes, the free with three set from Gina K Designs.

Here is how I made the card...

I started by sponging some So Saffron ink in the middle of my cardstock.

Sponged some Apricot Appeal around the sides and top of the So Saffron.

Sponged some Regal Rose as shown.

Then some Almost Amethyst.

Sponged with Lavender Lace all the way out to the edges.

Added some Perfect Plum to the outer edges.

I used post-it notes and tore the edges to create a mask for the land along the horizon line, then sponged with Going Grey and Basic Black. I also used a 1/2 circle punched from a post-it note as a mask to create the sun, then sponged a bit of So Saffron around it.

Next, I stamped the dandelion heads, followed by the stems, and the little seeds floating away in the breeze. I added some leaves from Tropical Flowers and layer with Basic black on a Lavender Lace cardbase. The sentiment is also from Many Wishes.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a day filled with smiles and stamping!

It was gorgeoso then and it still is - I am going to try this step by step just like you shared and see how it turns out - it is TO DIE FOR beautiful - now why didn't I think of adding in the tropical flower stems with the dandies? Perfect accents. Rock on T!
