Wish Upon a Star & Peter Pan

This card was made using a small piece of background card made by spritzing alcohol ink on glossy card with a can of compressed air. The image is one of the new UMs I bought from Linda of Lost Coast Designs at the Port Sunlight show.
When we visited the Palm House on Sunday, it was so lovely to see, nearby, the Peter Pan statue back to it's original glory. It is an exact copy of the famous statue in Kensington Gardens and brings joy to so many children (and adults too)
Lots of little animals and characters set in the gnarled tree trunk below Peter Pan.
The last time I saw it, it was in the conservation museum under renovation and it was all in pieces.
