Simon Says - show a word

I know, I know  -  another post today....   And the word is - wish!

I used my Tim "wish" die in the middle of the baroque die on black metal which I then embossed through one of Tim's texture fades.

Still in an alcohol ink mood, after Grungy Monday, so coloured - or removed colour - with red pepper and oregano.

Fixed the metal to a piece of Kraft paperestack mounted on a square card and added a flower made with mulberry paper and the tattered florals die, and a button from my stash.

The colours don't show up too well - the light is just too poor to take without flash and the flash is kind of distorting the colours - the mulberry paper looks red here, but it's a kind of rusty colour between the mustardy yellow.

Check out a whole variety of words at Simon Says for the chance to win a great prize.
