Preferred Promotional Partners:
Other:   Stamp-It image, Heat Gun, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® - E-Z Tape Runner, Foam Dots, Spritzer Bottle and water, white cardstock, jade cardstock, paper towels, Blue Moon Beads®
 Lost & Found Tag, yellow and white twine

Start by randomly sponging white card using IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™ Dye Ink in Dandelion and a IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Sponge Daubers™  - bearing in mind where you will be stamping the Dandelion.  
  1. Follow this with the IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™ Dye Ink in Tangerine in the center of the Dandelion.
  2. Fill in the white areas using the IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™ Dye Ink in Summer Sky
NOTE: Using circular motion while sponging will help avoid uneven colour. 

Cover with the IMAGINE Crafts® Embossing Powder™ in Clear and set with  Heat Gun. 


Once the embossing has cooled, repeat the process, using white embossing powder instead of clear.  You can see in the photos below the definition the white embossing gives.


Once the embossing has cooled, sponge the blue areas using IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™ Dye Ink in Teal Zeal and a IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Sponge Dauber™, next lightly sponge IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™ Dye Ink in Rich Cocoa to the center of the dandelions to add some depth.


Lightly spritz the inked images with water, dabbing dry with a  paper towel to remove excess water.
Cut out using the Grand Calibur Cutting Machine and the 5x7 Matting Basics A Spellbinders®  Nestabilities® Card Creator Die #5 (remembering #1 is the smallest Die.)


Layer the image onto white card , cut using the 5x7 Matting Basics B Spellbinders®  Nestabilities® Card Creator Die #5, using foam tape.
Adhere this to the jade card base, cut using 5x7 Matting Basics A Spellbinders®  Nestabilities® Card Creator Die #6.
Using IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® StazOn® Solvent Inks in Jet Black and a IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Sponge Daubers™ to ink the sentiment on the Blue Moon Beads® Lost & Found Ta.  Wipe the excess ink off the tag, leaving it in the lettering as shown in the photo below.


Attach to the card using yellow and white Twine and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® - Foam Dots on the tag.
