As so often happens, I get a design idea in my head, give it a try, and the results aren't at all what I'd pictured . . .
Initially, the background dandelions were intended to be much more noticeable. But when all was stamped and done, I can see that this would have been a big mistake. While I love big and bold, I'm thinking that a lot more practice in the realm of subtle will lead me to some interesting results. As for this sample, I'm really happy with it!
