Whiff of Joy Pick of the Month

I am late with this posting, I got back from my lovely weekend late on Sunday and have woken up this morning with a thumping headache, so this will be a quick post, I have to tell you though for the first time in my very unsporting life I actually beat all the Boys and came first in the bowling, I am not a competitive person but I must admit to a guilty pleasure in winning!!!! :)

This months Pick of the Month for Whiff of Joy DT members was to make or decorate a plant pot holder.

I went for the easy option this time and bought this lovely lily from M&S already in a container, as soon as I saw the lily I knew I had to use this beautiful Melinda Angel stamp, the lilys are a perfect match.

She has been coloured with copics on SU whisper white card and although she look almost colourless in the awful photos I have taken IRL she is a lovely peach and cream.

The Brown ribbon with Gold Edge is from stash,

Stamps -
Whiff of Joy
Paper - Basic Grey Porcelain
Colouring Medium - Copic on SU Whisper White
Tools - Nesties, Martha Stewart border punch, Swirl Punch Oval nesties
Embellies Flowers - Prima, rest from stash.

Thanks for looking
Jacqui xx
