Sunday Stampers 166: Wish You Were Here.

Hels challenge on Sunday Stampers this week is 'Wish' so I thought I would dust off my Artistic Outpost 'Fortune Teller' set and make a tag, because don't we all wish that we could have  lucky reading!

Firstly I used distress dabber Spun Sugar as a base. Then I inked up the big background stamp from the set in Victorian Velvet and distressed the edges with Aged Mahogany. The fortune teller was inked in archival on white card and coloured with copics and adorned with some different shades of pink crystals and a gold leaf pen. The crystal ball was stamped in Stazeon to some perspex packing and backed with sticky pads for dimension. 'The Future is bright' was inked and stickled as were the Wish Adage tab and the Palm Reading ticket. I must admit the veiled curtain to the side of the lady was a challenge to stick down and doesn't show to well in the photo, the beaded trim is the pelmet to her booth and I punched the distressed edge of the tag with my Martha stewart punch.
Fun to do! I am now trying to do the stamping with bleach project in this months Craft stamper, so hope to post again soon, unless it is too disasterous to photo! Happy Sunday to all! xx
