Make a wish

I am trying to catch-up and ink the stamps I bought (some over 6 months ago...) and haven't got around to use. I know, a nice problem to have!

This one is from Crafty Individuals and it's the last one I bought, from their latest release, and I thought it fitting to team it up with the first CI set I ever bought.

The background is easy to make with a brayer and a Kaleidacolor pad, here I used the Autumn Leaves but Desert Heat or even Tomato Vine would work for a hot sunset background.

I stamped the CI-471 Make a Wish image with dye ink and decided to add ribbon underneath as she looked odd cut in half against the sunset!
Below I stamped the Make a Wish sentiment from Rubber Dance (Affirmations set) .
The stamp is not a solid silhouette by the way, and what may look like a patchy impression is actually the very fine script on the little girl's image.

Finally, to give my tag an edge (pun intended), I added the Ferns & Grasses (CI-207 set) at the bottom.

There you have it, pure stamping pleasure!

Hope you'll like it too,
I am entering the Rubber Dance, Lost Coast and SSS Monday challenges.
