Dandelion sunset

A lovely day out at Farnborough on Friday for the 'Make It' show.  Lots of bits I 'needed' found their way home.  Not quite sure how we managed to spend all day there again!  Bumped into a few friends and familiar stallholders too and tea on the way home to make a full day of it.

Before I went I had seen a set of stamps that were actually on my list and it was lovely to see them being demonstrated too so I paid attention and thought I'd have a go before I forget what I saw.

The set was 'Dandelions at Dusk' from Card-Io and this is their card that I have re-created (roughly):

As much as I would love to play more at the moment I needed a card for my Aunt's birthday this week so this is where this card is heading.

The background is inked using 3 different versacolor ink pads - will have to try more dramatic oranges next!.  I have then used all of the 8 different stamps in the set in black over the top of the image.
Some hand drawn lines to finish round the edge and a trusty SU greeting and couple of punches to finish.


  1. This is lovely Jill - glad you managed to find something that was on your list......not sure what my excuse was as I didn't have a list!!! lol A great day out and weren't we lucky with the weather?

  2. I reckon that stamp set was a good buy and you've made a pretty card using them. I'll be looking out for more cards using some of your other purchases - bet you didn't restrict yourself to one stamp set LOL!!
