I'm here today with my take on this months challenge over at WOW! Embossing Powder where the theme is 'Wood'. I was a bit stumped (pardon the pun!) to begin with but then that light bulb moment came and I was off!
Lolly sticks of course!! I used a few strips of scrap card to join the sticks together - it was either that or glue each edge. Having done this previously, I wasn't about to do it again!! (I'll share that project later in this post) As you can see, I then stamped and embossed this Dandelion with rogue 'fluffy' bits in WOW! Primary Ebony Super Fine powder. I don't know the name given to the bits on a Dandelion - on a flower they'd be petals...maybe I'll have to look that up?! Well, I've just looked it up and the best explanation I can offer is that they would just be called seeds. I suppose the fluffy part is a parachute for the seeds?! It's not really relevant to this post, so I'll try and get back on track!!
I made this into a sympathy card, not because I needed one luckily, but because I had the sentiment issue again! It was the only one that suited the card...and it's always good to have one in your card stash I think, just in case you become to bleary eyed after an event to make a card...that may just be me...
I based this layout on the CAS(E) This Sketch sketch from last week, but never got around to posting it...c'est la vie!
