WOJ Challenge and Hello to Xmas Henry


Whiff of Joy Challenge

Its a sketch challenge this week on Whiff of Joy Challenge, our very own Heather has created a fantastic sketch for you to follow, and the DT have excelled themselves with the wonderful cards they have created with it, so please come and join us this week.



I spent a long time trying to find 5 matching papers for the sketch then decided to go with only one, I must say I am quite pleased with the result. This Willow with Grapes has become one of my favourite Whiff of Joy stamps. Distress inks have been used to colour her (Worn Lipstick, Peeled Paint, Frayed Burlap, Tea Dye, Tattered Rose, Dusty Concord).

The Roses and leaves have been sprayed with Pearl Glimmer Mist, the Pearl Hat Pin and gorgeous Glittered Tulle Ribbon are available from Tabby Craft, Tabs has just had a delivery of the most glorious roses give her a visit you will not be disappointed.






My DT package from Katharina arrived yesterday and boy oh boy I couldn't believe my eyes, it was contained 13 of the most delicious Christmas Stamps you could image, Henry Christmas Mouse is sure to be the biggest hit for Xmas 2009, and I know we will be seeing him everywhere on the blog, you just MUST go and check out all 13 of the stamps they are all available to order now, just click Here to find them.



Wow no Papers on this one that was hard!!!!!, but I wanted Henry to take centre stage, I have used an Easel card again, I am really liking this shape, I used the lovely Fleur de Lys Nesties for the matting and have glittered around all the edges. Henry has been coloured with Distress Inks, (Tea Dye, Worn Lipstick, Broken China), with Glamour dust added to his wings and halos. Look out for lots more Henrys appearing on here in the next few days, and I will also have some Henry Candy for you on Monday.



Hope you all have a great day.

Thanks for looking
Hugs
Jacqui xx

Gorgeous Jacqui. I especially love how you've mounted the same patterned cardstock for each layer with red ... great idea to keep the card uncluttered.
