Dandelion Wishes OnStage Live Dortmund Swap. Yesterday I shared one of the swaps I have made for OnStage Live. Today I have the second one. This one is really simple to make, and makes the best use of the Stamparatus. I love how we can use this amazing tool to make lots of amazing projects really quickly. If you don’t have one yet and are in the UK, you could win one from me. Just keep reading to find out how!
I have always enjoyed ink blending, so thought I would include some in one of my swaps. I have to admit that I have used some contraband tools to get the blending done. You can see what by watching my YouTube video. To make sure I got the positioning of the blending correct every time, I made a mask simply by punching a circle in some window sheet, attached it to a scrap of card (from the back of a pack of Designer Series Paper!), just with a piece of sticky tape. I also drew a line on the scrap card so I knew where to line up the card each time.
Once I had blended with all of the colours (Poppy Parade, Mango Melody and Pumpkin Card), I stamped the Dandelion and sentiment in Tuxedo Black using the Stamparatus. Now that would be a great card just as it is, but I wanted to add some little extras. Using the new Paper Trimmer, which is AMAZING, I cut some really narrow strips of each of the colours I used for the blending. These were added to the side of the card, just by adding a piece of Tear & Tape along the edge.
The final touches are to mount the card onto a piece of Basic Black Card and then it is time for BLING. I selected 2 types of BLING. The first is a Rhinestone in the centre of the Dandelion, the second are tiny little dots of Fine Tip Glue in the centre of any of the seed heads that are on the blended background. That simple. Just make sure to allow plenty of time for the Fine Tip Glue to dry.
