Wishing Well by Whipper Snapper

This is a Wishing Well Rubber Stamp by Whipper Snapper coloured with Prisma Pencils.
The background was embossed using the Textile Cuttlebug folder and the label shapes used to cut out the Wishing Well is by Nestabilities.

A few Wishing Well traditions.
Did you know that the reason coins were thrown into a well was to give gifts to the guardians of that well as people believed that water had healing properties.
The theory was you dropped a coin into the Well and made a wish, if the coin landed face up then your wish was granted however if the coin landed face down then it wasn't.
It is said that millions of pounds each year are thrown into Wells and fountains in the hope that a wish will come true.
