Make a Dandelion Wish

But make no mistake: the weeds will win; nature bats last.
~ Robert M. Pyle

MFT PI Make a Wish
We don’t have Dandelions in Texas generally, and I kind of miss them.

Pure Innocence Make a Wish

Okay, I don’t miss pulling them out of the yard. But, I do have some wishes that need attention.

Dreams Come True

Oh, if blowing on a Dandelion would only make it so – I’d love some minions.

 

Tips & Techniques

The little Pure Innocence darling is Copic colored, paper pieced and fussy cut. I still go back and check Michele’s tutorial, Coloring Hair with Copic Markers. I love her color choices.

I used a Quickie Glue Pen to add just a little glitter on the tips of the Dandelion seed blossoms.

Here are the Copic markers I used and the rest of the ingredients. The links for the newest stamp sets and Die-namics will work after the release.

Finished size: 5-1/2″ by 5-1/2″. Additional ingredients: Memento Rich Cocoa Dye Ink, Fine Glass Glitter, American Crafts twine, Basic Grey Hipster Paper Pad (love it’s hip retro look).

My Favorite Things Teaser TimeIt’s My Favorite Things teaser time again. I’m highlighting one of the newest Pure Innocence images, Make a Wish, and the newest Blueprints Die-namics. I snuck you in a peek at another stamp set I’m so stinkin’ freakin’ excited about. It’s designed by our own, sweet Mona Pendleton. You’re going to freak, too, when you see the rest of Mona’s stamps this week. Oh, Swoon.

The My Favorite Things boss lady has all the scoop about our Teaser Time at the My Favorite Things Blog – details about the latest stamps and Die-namics, links to all the designers’ crazy-fun creations, and, yes, prizes.

Dandelion

If you make a wish for yourself, it’s a good idea to slip one in for someone else. It helps a wish to travel with a friend.

Hint, hint, if any of you has access to some Dandelions – would you tack on a wish for me? Minions, I Need Minions!
