Whiff of Joy Challenge #22 Green

Busy, busy, busy. Been buzzing around down our local Heritage railway station organising and preparing for the Easter bunny egg hunt. Leaving me lack of time to enter many challenges, getting withdraw symptoms so hope to be back to normal soon.
So for this Whiff of Joy Challenge #22 Green, I thought I would design a Mothers Day card complementing the greens of Spring. The image and paper lace is coloured with copic pens and the patterned paper is Deja Views Apple. For the finishing embellishments I have used coordinating buttons with peeloff letters on, plus ribbon and flower to complete the card.

Thank you for looking.

Whiff of Joy Challenge #20 Lavender and Lace

For the Whiff of Joy Challenge #20 Lavender and Lace, I decided to use Willow with sun hat stamp and coloured her with copic pens. I was very lucky to find a sheet of lavender patterned paper by K & Company amongst my stack of papers, and I also found the flowers that I had left over my daughters wedding. While I was out yesterday I saw some ribbon and lace that caught my eye and thought that’s just the thing I am looking for to decorate my card with. I also applied lavender stickles on top of the punched out flower shapes.

Thank you for looking.

Copic Challenge 3

Copic Challenge 3 – For this card I used sassafras Lass / Life’s Beautiful patterned paper and DCWV cardstock to match. To coordinate the colours, I coloured the image with copic pens using Y15 Cadmium Yellow (hair), R05 Salmon Red (top), E71 Champagne (trousers) and E21 Baby Skin Pink (body). I also used my cricut machine to cut out a frame for the image, and for the finishing touches I inserted a brad and a decorative jewel into the middle of the flower, and placed these on top of the punched out flower shapes.

Thank you for looking.
