To start I blended tumbled glass, salty ocean, twisted citron, and bundled sage distress oxide inks onto a panel of white cardstock. I splattered the panel with water and salty ocean and bundled sage ink and let it dry. Next I stamped lots of images from Dandy Day with Versafine and heat-embossed them with clear embossing powder. I colored them with Copic markers and then die-cut them with the coordinating dies.
Next I stamped the sentiment and dandelion seeds onto the blended panel with Versafine and heat-embossed them with clear embossing powder. Then I arranged my flowers and mice onto my scene and started adhering them with a mix of regular adhesive and foam mounting tape. Once everything was adhered I trimmed off any excess hanging off the edges. Next I applied a thin layer of crystal glaze to all of the dandelion puffballs and seeds. I sprinkled them with a tiny pinch of Chunky and a Prisma glitter and then filled all the rest of the glaze with white flocking powder. I used a finger to lightly press everything into the crystal glaze, let it dry completely, and then carefully brushed off the excess glitter and flocking powder. I love the subtle sparkle and texture it gives to the dandelions! And the crystal glaze is GREAT at really holding everything in place so it doesn’t flake off!
Have a happy, crafty weekend!
