Sunset Dandelions - WT258 CTD80 2S4Y46 February2020B


Ok, this card meets 4 challenges:

1. Splitcoaststampers' Ways to Use It Challenge - WT258 - found here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=480862;

2. Color Throwdown Challenge - CTD80 - found here: http://colorthrowdown.blogspot.com/;

3. 2Sketches4Y Challenge - 2S4Y46 - found here: http://2sketches4you.blogspot.com/; and

4. Hero Arts February Challenge - February2010B - found here: http://heroarts.com/blogs/club/february-2010-contest-details/.

This dandelion stamp from Hero Arts is one of my all-time favorites! I cut my 2 curved main image panels and stuck them together with repositionable adhesive, stamped with Versamark and then took them apart and embossed the top panel with gold detail ep, and the bottom panel with silver, then heat embossed them. Put them back together and finished assembling, using the sketch from 2Sketches4Y, and the colors from the Color Throwdown Challenge, and Splitcoaststampers Ways to Use It Challenge. tfl
