Dandelion Honey

I hope the title of this post didn't fool you into thinking I had a recipe for you hee hee :)

Today's card combines three challenges:  the sketch from Fusion, the colors from ColourMe and the word from CASology.



I stuck with a white on white card accented with some spritzing using Coastal Cabana ink in the top right and bottom left corners.  The flower panel is raised on dimensional tape.  The dandelions were stamps with Hello Honey ink and the stems stamped in Smoky Slate ink.  

The sentiment was clear embossed and the sequins and enamel dot are meant to represent the star shape in the sketch.

What isn't apparent from this photo is that the flower panel is dry embossed with the Ampersand folder to give a bit of added texture.  Here's a close-up where you can just make out the embossing.



I think it's apparent how I interpreted the "three" in the CASology challenge :)

Thanks for visiting.

Super beautiful card, Karren! I love how you spritzed the color in the top right corner … despite it being white on white, the card get's that little extra from that detail.

Thank you for playing along with us at Colour Me…! this week!
