Make a Wish

I thought it was time to get inky again, so inspired by the DT designs at Lavinia Stamps I created a card for their latest challenge - Add a Flower.

For this project I used Ink Dusters, Adirondack Inks and Tim Holtz distress inks.

I started by laying down some Sunshine Yellow, then I went over it with Pool, which gave me a lovely green.

I stamp the fairies and creeping ivy branch in Black Versafine.  I used the weeping willow stamp around the top edge in Tim Holtz Shabby Shutters, which I also used for the mini flowers.
For Foiliage around the bottom I used grey versa fine ink.

I finished by adding some fine green glitter to the flowers to add a little sparkle.

The sentiment is an inkylicous stamp and the paper flower is a Marianne die.
