Stampin’ Up! Dandelion Wishes ~ Thank You Card

Hello amazing crafty souls!
Happy weekend.

I hope you are having an amazing weekend and fit some crafty fun into your weekend if you can!

Today I am popping by with a rather quick post to share with you another fun card that I made with the Dandelion Wishes stamp set.
This is a stamp set that I have just fallen in love with all over again, after I recently made this card which everyone was just loving.

I decided to have a play with some fun watercolour on this card and some PINK! 
Yes I challenges myself not to automatically gravitate towards the blues and greens! I had a lot of fun combining some pinks and purple tones that I don't usually go for.

Be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post where I have linked all the products that I have used in today's project, all of which can be purchased in my store here.

Here's a look at my finished card where you can see the fun watercolour effect that I created with some emboss resist.
What is emboss resist? Embossing an image in a white or clear embossing powder and then adding some water based inks over the top, which then resists the image that you have stamped and embossed. It gives you a really fun look and is great for watercoloring and artistic effects!

I have watercolored over the top of this image in a mixture of; Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo and Blackberry Bliss and I just love how they blended together and created such fun tones. I have then heated this to dry as I really like the harsh and harder lines this provides when watercoloring as opposed to letting this dry naturally.
Tip: I have chosen to do this technique on some of our Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper as this can tajke a lot more water than a standard cardstock. 

I have then matted this with some Blackberry Bliss Cardstock and added this to a Whisper White card base.

I have added some Silver Foil and Linen Thread and added some splatters of Wink of Stella.

Here's a look at the fun colour combination that I used:

Here's a close up look at the finished card where you can see some of the details.

I have embellished with some of the beautiful Magenta Madness In Colour Ribbon tied in a bow.
The sentiment in heat embossed in white on some Blackberry Bliss Cardstock and this sentiment was taken from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set.

I have then further embellished with some die cut flourish pieces from the Detailed Bands Dies cut from Vellum Cardstock and added some foliage pieces from the Flowers for Every Season Memories and More Card Pack. 

I have also added some Gilded Gems for extra detailing.

Here's a look at the finished inside of my card where I have stamped some further dandelions in Melon Mambo and added some more Silver Foil and Linen Thread.

I have added this to layers of Whisper White and Blackberry Bliss.

I hope you were able to get some inspiration from today's card share.
