Clearly Besotted Teasers | Birthday Wishes

Hello there and welcome to day four of the Clearly Besotted Teasers for the September 2018 release. The new products go live tomorrow at 8pm BST, so not too long to wait now! For my last teaser today, I am using the new Wishful Thinking set. It is such a pretty set filled with dandelions, branches and fabulous sentiments.

I started off my card by creating the background. I thought the dandelions would look good using the alcohol ink lift technique that Jennifer McGuire shares here. I took a panel that I had made previously with alcohol inks. This was one that I had made by smooshing yupo paper in to the leftover alcohol inks that were on my craft mat, so it is one without too much interest.
I took various dandelion stamps from the Wishful Thinking set and stamped these on to the panel using the Alcohol Ink Lift Ink Pad. I then buffed away any excess with a dry cloth. It gives a wonderful effect! The panel was then cut down and added flat to a white A2 card base with tape runner.
I die cut letters using the Altenew Fine Alphabet set and cut these twice from white cardstock and once from SSS glitter cardstock. These were stacked up and added to the card with liquid glue. I then took the sentiment from the set and stamped this on to white cardstock with black ink. I cut it in to a strip and added it to the card with thin foam tape.

It's a very simple card but I really like how the background came out with the alcohol ink lift technique.
