Dreams and Wishes Card

I'm getting this post up later than I planned on because school is out!  That means the kids are home and we are all trying to get adjusted to our new schedules.  I guess late is better than never right?!

Today's card is for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Make a Wish and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything Goes.  I decided to make just one card for both challenges. 

This card was really easy to make!  I stamped the child image in gold ink wiping away the spot where I wanted the sentiment and then covered the gold ink with clear embossing powder and heat set it.  I then stamped the sentiment (a dream is a wish your heart makes) with VersaMark Ink and heat set it with clear embossing powder also.  Once that was done I colored select areas with my Tim Holtz Distress Markers and then sprayed the whole panel with water.  I wanted a pale dreamy effect and I think I got just that.  I trimmed out the image and glued it onto my card base.  Super easy and quick.  Sometimes it's nice to throw in a simple card once in a while.  Thanks for stopping.
