You have the Potential to make beautiful things...

Morning lovelies, Hope you are all having a nice weekend ? It seems that I haven't stopped all weekend and yet have got very little done...do you ever get days like that ? 

A huge thank you for all your recent lovely comments, they really do mean a lot and always make me smile :) 

A little bit of news...I was asked a little while ago if I would like to join the Crafter's Companion International Inspiration Team, this is a HUGE honor and it an amazingly talented team and i was very shocked to be asked, at the time I had some stuff going on and asked if I could join in April, very luckily they said that was fine and today is my first official blog post for them. 


I have used my Spectrum Noir Aquatints in Perfectly Primary on Crafter's Companion Watercolour Card to create the background. I then used Die'sire Sentimentals Wildflower stamp set , I used the main stamp along the bottom but wanted a kinda distressed look to it so I inked it up and then stamped the excess off onto some scrap card and then stamped onto the card, I then stamped the sentiment which is from the same set. 
The little dandelion seeds are part of the large stamp, I inked them up and tried to create the swirl of them blowing around...hope that worked ?! 
I then added some Stampendous Fran-tage in Shabby White and heat set and around the edge I used some Pebeo Gilding wax
I then mounted it only some Crafter's Companion Matt Black card and created a card blank using Centura Pearl Hint Of Gold and it was done. 
I hope you like it, It was a nice relaxing card to do.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and happy crafting
