Dandelion Wishes and Northern Lights

Do children still use dandelion clocks to tell the time? Do they still use buttercups to find out if you like butter? And daisies to find out if he “loves you, loves you not”? Or have these innocent pastimes gone the way of scrumping and fishing for tiddlers?

Here’s another fun background technique to show off the Dandelion Wishes stamp set. This time it’s the Northern Lights technique - which is simply sponging in dark blue in with some streaks of Lemon Lime Twist thrown in. You finish it off simply by dotting with the Chalk Marker, freehand.

This background has been sitting in my UFOs (unfinished objects) box for some time, so this was the perfect opportunity to use it.

I stamped the image in Whisper White Craft Ink and then embossed in white embossing powder on top. I find this doubling up gives the crispest images.

Very little else was needed so I finished off with my last remaining pearls (must order some more!) and some white Baker's Twine. Hope you like!

  1. Love the background. Embossing set the dandelions off. Lovely card.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.
