One last wish from Me to You

Hello everyone! leslierahye here for my last post with Viva Las VegaStamps! I've been with the team for two terms and wanted to take this opportunity to allow new blood to join the team and to explore some new projects for myself--there are only so many hours in the day! I love Viva Las VegaStamps! and will continue to enjoy their unique and varied brand of rubber! For my final project I wanted to create for you an ATC that not only followed my "one little word" personal journey this year, but also focused on one of my most favorite "blooms."
Dandelions have always been in my top 5 favorite flowers and this year I have found some MAMMOTH ones nearby. I took the opportunity to photograph them last month and got this fabulous shot of the seed head close up! That becomes one of the layers of my trading card.

For this project you will need
 Blowing Dandelion and Extra Seed by Susan M. Brown 2 x 3 1/2 and 3/4 x 3/4.
Make A Wish 3/4 x 2 1/4
Memento Ink
Brilliance Ink
rope trim/bakers twine
Specimen Bottle
Foam Tape
fresh wishes

begin by procuring some fresh wishes.
Tie rope twin to neck of bottle.
trim out photograph for focal piece.
Stamp with dandelion stamp & Make a Wish
Edge the photograph
Add focal piece to an ATC sized cardboard
that has been stenciled. Attach with foam tape.
Poke holes through ATC to attach specimen
bottle full of wishes to ATC with Baker's Twine.
Dot your "i" with a piece of bling!
 Thank you for joining me over the last year or so! I've enjoyed creating stamped projects with you! I hope you continue to find inspiration with my returning teammates and the new artists joining the team. They have awesome ideas to share with you! Finally I leave you with one final wish...I wish you take time to create for simply makes the world a more interesting place!Thank you Viva Las VegaStamps for this fantastic journey! à bientôt! ~leslierahye
