Wishing Well Impression Obsession

I have wanted this stamp for quite awhile and finally got it!  I knew it would take some time to color but I had no idea how long.  I used Copic markers, way too many to list!  Tim Holtz makes a wonderful brick embossing folder and it is the perfect compliment to the brick in the well.  After using it to emboss my patterned paper I inked up the raised parts with my trusty Chestnut Roan Cat's Eye. 

The watering can charm was too bright in silver so I used an earth toned Copic to dull the color.  For my sentiment, I stamped it, embossed and cut it with a Grommet Tag and airbrushed the yellow on while it was still in the die.  Finished card is 5.5 x 5.5.
