Dandelion.

My freebie Dandelion digi has been in my side bar for just over a week now and it's been great to know that people have liked it and requested to download it. I also thought that I should have a go at using it my self!
I had a fresh order of Stampin' Up card stock and ink a while a go and I have been dying to use the two blues - Tempting Turquoise and Pacific Point and I thought that this would be the ideal opportunity to do so.
So I downloaded the digi - twice and cut them to size. I sponged them with the blue inks and layered them onto some Tempting Turquoise card stock.
 
I added a silver clip to the larger of the pictures and tied on a piece of organza ribbon. This was originally white but I ran it over my ink pad before heating it with my heat gun - this not only dried the ink but also melted the ribbon slightly giving it a crinkled look.
I added a sympathy sentiment - thankfully I don't need such a card at the moment but I thought it looked a peaceful sort of card.
There is a DT call at the moment over on The Stamping Boutique so I am entering my card there. They want to see cards made with digi stamps - hope they like mine!
Bye for now - Jacqueline xx
