Dandelion Wishes Clear Block Background

Fall dandelion wishes

Fall is my favorite time of the year!

I love the cooler temps and the changing colors.

To celebrate the arrival of fall, I've been busy creating some fall-themed cards.

This card features the Clear-Block Background Technique paired with one of my new favorite stamp sets, Dandelion Wishes.

Here's how:

  1. To create the clear-block water color background, tap ink pads onto a clear-block, spritz with water so the ink runs and pools, then stamp onto a piece of card stock.  Let the block set for a few seconds, then lift.  Set the piece aside to dry completely.  For this card, I used Pool Party, Crushed Curry, and Mango Melody inks on a "F" clear-block.  I stamped the block on a piece of Shimmery White card stock.  You could also use watercolor paper.
  2.  Stamp the images from Dandelion Wishes using Early Espresso ink.  Sprinkle clear embossing powder over the images and heat emboss using a heat tool.
  3.  Mat to a piece of Early Espresso card stock and attach to Mango Melody card base using Mini Dimensionals to pop it up.
  4.  Add enamel shapes to complete.

I stamped the greeting from Dandelion Wishes on the inside:
