Bday Vase cu06069
Weekly-Favorite   Best of 2015 SCS
Today’s Color Challenge (CC524) on Splitcoast had some pretty colors…perfect for flowers, which was also one of the dessert options. I have this new little dandelion image and I thought it would look good in a vase. After stamping & masking, I sponged the 3 closest colors I had to the challenge and spritzed w/ a little water. I added a few white dots w/ a gel pen just to brighten them up a bit then I cut them out.

After I die cut the flower heart, I sponged the same colors on the flowers, spritzed them then put it back in the die & embossed it again while damp. This is really thick card stock and it embosses so much better when damp. After I punched the vase, I also misted it and embossed it w/ the same die. The edge of the lighter pink c/s was punched, sponged a little & white dots added to the centers. When the card was all put together, I added the black Candi dot on the flag & a little Wink of Stella on the dandelions.

Since I didn’t use any designer paper, I repeated the dandelions & sponging on the inside.
