Dandee Wishes

blue dandee wish Heather Telford

This is the birthday card we gave our older daughter today.

Dandee wishes blue straight Heather Telford

I painted the panel a while ago but just turned it into a card for her birthday. Both this blue one and the orange one further down the page were emboss resist experiments. What is fun with emboss resist and watercolour powders is the variation and depth of colour changes from one side of an embossed line to another. To see an awesome example of this, check out Lindsey’s card.

For both colour schemes I embossed the dandee stamps in clear powder on watercolour paper.  I sprinkled blue and green brusho powders on the one above then spritzed water to activate the powders. I used a paintbrush to do some colour moving but not much; most of the design is the magic of the paint.

The orange and yellow card was done in a similar fashion but I used colorburst powders and added some yellow gold liquid metal when I added water. There is a shimmery patch of colour as well as specks of gold in real life.

When I came back to the panels the other day I stamped the dandee stamps again over the panel in versafine inks and added popped up sentiments.
