The Lavinia Stamps Challenge this month is ‘Hot Bright Colours’, which immediately made me think of reds, oranges and yellows. I decided to use the Lavinia 'Dandelion' stamps which come in a set of three.
The Embossalicious 'Make a Wish - Dandelions' embossing folder seemed to perfect one to use for my card. I covered a card blank with red card to make the border. The dandelions were stamped with Adirondack 'Red Pepper', 'Sunset Orange' and 'Sunshine Yellow' ink pads. I used the same ink pads with Ink Dusters over a piece of plain white card, blending the colours, before embossing it. To give more definition to the embossed dandelions, I then inked again. The sentiment is computer generated and cut by hand.
Usually when I think of Autumn, I think of browns and oranges, but after a visit to Westonbirt Arboretum today, there were some stunning shades of red, orange and yellow on the trees, so my card fits an Autumn theme too. As I used white snippets for the stamping and embossing, I'll be sharing my card in the Playground.
I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:
