Dandelion clock ...

Wow, doesn't time fly especially when you're trying to cram loads in!  Well it has been a week since I last managed to create a post ... I don't know where the time goes!  Less chat more action ...

I created the background by inking one of my acrylic blocks with distress inks which I then spritzed with water that had perfect pearls in it.  I pressed the block onto a piece of watercolour card leaving it for a few seconds before lifting it off - I love the blended effect this gives.  I then used a stencil and embossing paste to create the dandelion clock, die cut the panel and a panel of black card.  The black card was adhered to the card base and I added fun foam to the back of the watercolour panel before adhering it to the card.

I used:
CUTplorations Rectangle dies
Sweet Poppy Brass Dandelion Stencil
Distress Inks - Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch
Perfect Pearls
Dreamweaver Matte Black Embossing Paste

I'm entering the following challenges:

"Less is More" #286 & 287 Use something Tactile - hopefully the raised embossing paste meets the criteria.

AAA Cards #70



  1. Beautiful card, Elaine! I love the drama added by the layers, and the gorgeous acrylic block background that sets off the embossing paste flower to perfection. Congratulations also on your showCASe at Less is More!

  2. Gorgeous, Elaine. I love the pretty blues against the crisp black and white....and matte black embossing paste has now been added to my very lengthy wishlist! It looks fabulous here.
    Thanks for sharing with us.
