Make a wish...

Good Morning everyone -
Hope your Wednesday is a good one...

We have a new challenge starting today at
ABC Christmas Challenge
and it is 
W is for Wishes

Our generous sponsor this time is
Wild Rose Studio
who are giving away a gorgeous die,
all the details are 
HERE
My card today is one of a set of three I made for 
October's Issue of Making Cards Magazine
I am so proud of the opportunity to contribute to this fabulous magazine, I am enormously grateful to Sally and Jo for their faith in me!  
(One my cards is on the front here - how fab is that)?

For today's card I have used a host of gorgeous inky products from
Crafty Ideas.

If you haven't visited Crafty Ideas on line (or in person)! you definitely should, Nikki is lovely and her and her ladies will do everything they can to help you - they run some wonderful workshops too.

I created an inky background on watercolour card with Distress Inks, water and a heat gun.  I used a beautiful Impression Obsession Silhouette Stamp - Curtsey and finally added some Frantage to look as if the little girl is sprinkling magic!

...and here we are...time to make a wish...xxx

  7. I'm making a wish that one day I will have the time and patience to try and make something anywhere close to the gorgeous inky effect you have achieved on this card (and the other 2!) :-D
    The silhouette against the beautiful background looks stunning and with the Frantage too...it's just magical *sigh*
    It's always fab to see your cards published too because they are so inspirational and gorgeous...you are fab :-)
    Big hugs, Kat xx
