Blue Dandy Days

More dirty play time.... I actually did this one at the same time as the other one last week, but I just found time to get it together.  I used my new paper from My Mind's Eye.  I also got really brave and sponged the edges of the paper too.  My friend Beate is so proud of me!!   I just love this set... it's truly one of my all time favorite sets!  It's called Dandy Days, and the sentiment set is called Life Is.

To get that cool look, all I did was smoosh my Ranger Ink pads right on the craft mat.  I used Antique Linen, Peeled Paint, and Broken China.  Then, I took a white piece of Neenah cardstock and smeared it around in the ink, and sopped up all the remaining ink.  After I picked it up, there was still some white areas... especially around the edges, so I used the Sponge tool, and inked up the edges with Antique Linen and Walnut Stain.  So easy... and the results are so much fun!  I added some Kaiser Rhinestones to the center of each Dandelion, and Sugar Crafty Sparkles around the edges.

Hope you had a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
