Hello there Coffee-Loving friends! Today's the last day of the Spring Coffee Lovers Hop and it's also a sad day in the coloring world. Crayola just announced they will retire one of my most used and most favorite colors in the 24 pack! Dandelion is OUT and another BLUE is in! WAAAHHHHH!!!
Dandelion is the most fabulous and sunshiny color! It just doesn't compare to the generic yellow. In my opinion, they should have removed the color Yellow Green if they wanted to get rid of a color...WAAAHHH...I'm so sad. So...To end this hop with a last hoo-rah, I decided to create a few cards using that fabulous 24 pack of Crayolas...and the gorgeous color dandelion. Hope you enjoy!
Take a look at my process shots:Whip Cream cardstock with Dandelion, Yellow Orange, Yellow Green and Cerulean colors. After that, I heat the colors with my heat gun and rubbed the wax off.
Whip Cream cardstock layer and heated them up like a grilled-cheese sandwich. This allowed the remaining wax to transfer to the other paper. I rubbed this "second generation" paper onto the first paper to add a bit more color.
After finishing the backgrounds, I quickly colored the cups (from the Hey Sugar stamp set)- not worrying about going out of the lines! One last Hoo-rah for Dandelion, right?! I cut out the cups, assembled them onto the card panels and added a few embellishing touches. I also rubbed my Black Licorice ink pad onto the edges of the panels so that the panel would stand out against the white card base.
And here are the final results:Journey Glaze and Sparkle Dust and a fun Black Journey Twine treatment!
Yummy, Yummy...So long my sunshine!Sparkle Drops will do the trick!
Thanks for joining me (and the Coffee Loving Papercrafters team as we close up this record breaking hop! I'll be back soon to announce the winner that Amy and randomnumbergenerator selects. :)
