Dandelions

Another inky day today, playing with one of my masks. 
 For the background I used Adirondack inks - Red Pepper, Sunshine Yellow and Sunset Orange and the background card was matted on orange and then attached to a black card blank. The Dandelion stamps are by Lavinia and I finished off the card with three black gems.  

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:
Lavinia Stamps Challenge # 3 ~ Add Some Gems

I love your zingy card with those hot colours and elegant flowers, set off against the black. I'm going to a workshop soon and hoping to get very inky, I'll remember this for inspiration xxx

Love this card! The dandelions look beautiful against the background, they really stand out. I was, of course, guaranteed to love it - dandelion and allium head designs (I use them interchangeably) are second only to dragonflies in my crafty loves!

What a super card, I love the bright colours in the background just perfect to show off the dandelions. I like the mask you used too.

Love that mask. Colour just pops off the card at you and makes a perfect foil for those dandelions. Hugs Mrs A.

I love the background stencilling Liz and such pretty citrus colours, and the dandelions look great on top. A beautiful card!

Wow Liz - this is so stylish! Wonderful stenciling as a background to those darling dandelions! Love how the gems counterbalance the sentiment too.
