Muted Dandelions

Hi crafters. The current challenge at A Blog Named Hero is muted colours. I started with grey speckled paper and brushed distress oxides in top. I think the grey paper helps it looks more muted. I then stamped the piece with the Hero Arts Ocean waves bold print stamp misted with water. This gives oxidised lines to suggest wind. I then used the Hero Arts woodblock Dandelion Stamp which has 2007 on it. I like the delicate lines in this stamp. I first stamped it with water, then grey ink and lastly embossing ink. The grey ink was a dye ink but it mustn’t have been completely dry as it picked up some powder. I liked that so I let it happen again. I used a greeting from the Hero Arts Hero Greetings Occasions stamp set and embossed that in silver as well.

I am entering this card in A Blog Named Hero November challenge
