This card was inspired by Yapha Mason's question on Stampin' Addicts about uses for the Stampin' Up! Shimmer Paint n ow that the holidays are over. I had suggested stamping an image in ink first, and then stamping with Frost White, slightly offset of the first image. Then I had to try it for myself. :-D
I stamped the dandelion hearts in Elegant Eggplant Classic ink on Lavender Lace cardstock, and then used the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to make sure the Frost White was ever-so-slightly offset. The faux stitching was done with the Piercing Tool, Mat Pack, and Elegant Eggplant Stampin' Write Marker.
I have no idea what SU set the sentiment came from. It's copyrighted from 2002. I thought it was perfect for the dandelion image. Didn't you used to make a wish before you blew the dandelion fluff when you were a child? I sure did! Now all I can think is "Eek! More darn weeds in the lawn!" Sucks to grow up, doesn't it?
