Little wishes

There's a new challenge over at Inchie Inklings: black and white plus one colour. I like to play along with these when I can and I managed a card for this one today.

It's a very simple design but I liked the idea of using the texture to represent the seeds drifting out from the dandelion clock with the little gems for a touch of fairy dust to help those wishes along!

Stamps:
Inkadinkado Inchie Stamps Flowers

Paper:
Black
White

Ink:
Versafine by Tsukineko (Onyx Black)

Other:
Texture Fade Embossing folder
Copic marker (to color the mat to match the gems)
Acrylic nail art gems


Thanks for stopping by!
