Dandelions



A quick ATC using another of Quietfire's new stamps.  I started with glossy white cardstock... stamped the dandelion (Hero Arts) with Ranger's resist ink (one stamped just off from the green one and another in the lower left corner) and dried the resist ink.  Sprayed some water on a craft sheet and dabbed in some broken china and peeled paint Distress Stains and then pressed the ATC into the mix... lifted it out, placed it face up and then pressed another atc blank onto it and pulled it up (this pulled the extra ink from the atc and started a background for another one).  Dried it and decided the color needed to be a little darker and opted to use Distress Ink on a blending foam to add more color.  Next I flicked on some water drops, blotted them right away and dried the atc.  Stamped one dandelion again using Distress Ink peeled paint and dried it.  Stamped the quote using jet black Archival and dried it.  Roughed up the edges using Tim's paper distresser and added stitching.
