Whiff of Joy Challenge

Love all the die cuts you all used this week, what a wonderful variety!!! Loved them all. Thanks so much for joining us last week.

Just a reminder you have only a few days to get your pre order in for the Winter Stamp Kit. Make sure you get over to Whiff of Joy and get yours in. The kit will be out in a couple of weeks and Katharina has a card made with one of the new images from the release. Oh so pretty.

This week we have a wonderful sketch for you brought to you by our own Heather. And I know you all love her sketch's. So come and join us in this challenge this week. One lucky person will be picked to be Guest Designer with us for the month of November. So get those cards entered for you never know you may be the lucky person.

Just remember there is only 1 rule. You must use a Whiff of Joy Stamp to enter.



Father Christmas in PINK I hear you say!! but its only Coca Cola that says he has to be in RED so thought I would do my own thing and I quite like the result for a little girls Christmas Card. But I am not sure that the blue backing paper is quite right, the lighting in my craft room is not 100%, I am in the attic and only have 1 window so work by artificial light most of the time, the combination seemed to work until I put the card in front of the window this morning.

Anyway my cute Whiff of Joy Father Christmas has been coloured with Distress Inks, the papers are Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses, Nesties were used for the circles and flat back pearls added to make them more interesting. The snowflake which is difficult to see was punched once in Dark Red card and Once in acetate, then Twinklets was added to the acetate one. The pearl brad has been coloured to match the design with copics.


Recipe:
Stamps - Whiff of Joy , Sentiment Penny Black
Papers - Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses
Colouring medium - Distress Inks Tattered Rose Tea Dye Worn Lipstick Broken China Weathered Wood Peeled Paint Spiced Marmalade.


Thanks for looking
Hugs

I love this card! Everything is so fine, so delicious! And I am especially fond of the colouring! My husband gave me a strange look when he saw me colouring Santa in a much pinker pink than you did some days ago, but I like it! Hope I will soon find the time to make a coard with it!
