Dreams Come True

Hello my friends, followers and passers by.

Inkylicious have just released several new stamps on their web site and they are so fabulous that I just had to have them.  I'll be having a play with them over the next few week and I hope to then share them with you.  The one that I just couldn't wait to have a play with is called 'Dreams Come True' and here's my latest creation:

I started by ink dusting the whole card with Adirondack Lemonade and Peach Bellini and then I masked off the sun. I then dusted around it with Peach Bellini and Mountain Rose and used Egg Plant around the outside of the card.  When I was happy with the colour and blending, I then stamped the main image at the base of the sun and stamped the sentiment above.  I absolutely love this stamp and I decided that I didn't just want to make a plain card with it and so I decided to embellish it.  I mentioned in a previous post about making some 'Peace Roses' with my Spellbinder Rose Creations and so this is what I did.  I added them to opposite corners to give it balance; and then added the gold leaves to match the gold frame around the card.  The gold also stood out beautifully against the black background card. I'm really happy with how the card turned out and can't wait to have another play with the stamp using different colours. I hope that you like to too :)

I'm entering this card into the following card challenges:


  1. How bizarre Sandra as I finished a card before work with the very same sentiment although by another stamp company, like you I fell in love with it.

    The way the butterflies and hair sweep round the sun looks really effective.
