Dandelion and Mushroom

 Morning and did have two cards to show today but decided to keep one as it fits a DT challenge lol

First of all I heat embossed the Fantasy Dandelion stamp from Inkylicious in white onto black cardstock then using an oxide ink pad and stencils from CReative Expressions/Artisan Designs/That's Crafty and Tando Creative also a craft mag freebie script stamp.The stamped sentiment is from Crafters Companion and the mushroom from Rubber Dance was stamped onto an old dictionary page and cut out.

This is just too clever, you are so, so talented - and I don't think I tell you that often enough!

I love your dandelion stamp, so pretty, it reminds me of the old PSE (Personal Stamp Exchange ) floral stamp set images. And the mushroom is somehow very cute - how can a mushroom look cute?

Have a great week.

You really do have an artists eye Carol, this is just marvellous, I love the dandelion stamp (looks more like a chrysanthemum to me, what do I know!) but the sentiment/ mushroom an addition on a book page is so delightful. Love it All.

Viv said...

This is maybe what I should have done Carol? Used a big bold stamp instead of just the sentiment - it looks so much better than my attempt!! Great job! x
