A Dream and a Wish by Kristy Stevens

Hello Bloggers, today I want to share with you my latest creation which I have colored using Distress inks and markers,
This way of coloring is all still new to me but im loving how easy these inks are to work with.

Thank goodness for Wendy at Scottie Crafts who gave me the heads up on using Tim Holtz water brush, this little baby is a dream, I highly recommend popping over to the Scotties shop Here and picking one up.
They come in two sizes depending on what you are using them for but the fine detailer is just perfect for stamped images.

The image I have used today is "Dandelion Girl" from Wee stamps, isn't she just so precious with her little socks.


 Here is a close up look at the vial in my flower arrangement, im not sure if you can see but inside are tiny dandelion seeds like in the image, super hard to find in the winter but my little girl and I hunted till we found these three so they are quite special. 

 Speaking of flowers, there is a real mash of brands here including Prima and some handmade ones but they have all had little touches such as ink,glitter gesso etc to make them a little more special and also to help them mesh well with each other and the paper line which is from Prima's beautiful Pixie glen collection.

 So here is one last look, I will leave a list with links of other products I have used below but feel free to comment if i have missed anything that you are curious about.

Thanks for looking.

  1. Stunning card, love the image and the colours look amazing.

  2. Hello Kristy.
    This is a gorgeous card, not only for its papers, but the shabby qualities that I so love on a card, I love your design and vial as a tactile element and the image is so cute.
