Dandelion Clock

Hi I have been pondering for a while over the new Clarity challenge for May. As I don't have any stamps even vaguely related to a clock. So I decided to do my take on this and do a dandelion clock.

Items Used
Gelli plate, gelli card, acrylic paints, dandelion lady stamp, Clarity stencil, Cosmic shimmer texture paste frosty dawn, adirondack ink pad butterscotch, distress ink pads crushed olive & forest moss, the clarity letter box stamp set, 8x8 card blank, gold card and green card.
I made a print using acrylic paints in green and buff titanium
I then stamped two dandelion images one onto the print using butterscotch, forest moss and crushed olive ink, and the other onto a small piece of spare gelli card using the same colours..
I cut the second one out carefully
I then stencilled the leaves with the cosmic shimmer paste onto the the top and the bottom making sure I had room for the words.
Next I stamped the words using forest moss ink pad
finally i attached the second dandelion over the first with sticky pads to give dimension.
All that was needed then was to mat and layer to finish.
