Whiff of Joy Challenge

What did I say yesterday about sketches this week, and here we have another 2 today
Our sketch on
Whiff of Joy Challenge is by our own Heather and we hope you enjoy working with it as much as we did. Thanks everyone who joined us last week wow there were some outstanding cards.

With all the new releases we have had lately from Whiff of Joy I have not used this lovely Willow stamp for ages, so I thought it was time I bought her out and inked her up. I also thought it was time for a bit more Distress ink colouring. Think I have gone a bit overboard with the flowers on this one though!!!

Just a peek at the inside of the card

Stamps - Whiff of Joy Willow with Cookies
Papers - Basic Grey Porcelain
Colouring medium - Distress Inks and H20,s
Tools - Nestie Labels and Large and medium Retro Punch
Embellishments - Brads, Spacers and Ribbon from stash, buttons from Silly Monkeys

Stampavie and more

I got my new Spring Magnolias on Monday and couldn't wait to ink them up, they are so much cuter now with their bigger eyes, I also decided to use Distress Inks again being as I had them out for my WOJ Card.

It felt really strange not using a square card, but I couldn't make the image fit all the elements of the sketch on a 6"x6", but I quite liked the effect on this size card, but more sure about the green ribbon. This stamps call out for flowersoft don't you think. I havn't decorated the inside yet as I actually out of the Porcelain Pad, so will have to rectify this when the new pads arrive

Stamps - Magnolia (Crafts u Love)
Papers - Basic Grey Porcelian Pad
Tools - Circle and Scallop Circle nesties and flower punch
Colouring medium - Distress Inks and H20's.
Embellishments - Flat backed pearls Joanna Sheen, Flowersoft, Spacers from Stash as is Ribbon, Sentiment Craftwork Cards

Thanks for looking
Jacqui xx
