So I'll stop dancing [for now] and get to my card.
I had not used this Whiff of Joy image yet, still have a few that haven't seen ink, so here it is on this card for Whiff of Joy Challenge 17. This week was a great sketch by Donalda. I turned it on its side. This image is called "Melinda's Books", stamped on a piece of sepia DP, then colored with regular and metallic Prismacolor pencils, without blending on the books. Added gold Liquid Pearls to the spine, and Stickless to the bookmark flower. Cut and embossed the image with Curved Rectangle Nestabilities. The border was colored and blended with Prismacolor pencil and baby oil. All DP is from Hot Off The Press, including gorgeous Background vellum with different handwritten looking notes. Border punch from Fiskars, and the flowers are from a MS punch called Hydrangeas. They have Weathered Lavender Stickles in the center; these don't sparkle like the regular Stickles, are called "distressed" so are more muted, but still gorgeous. Sentiment from Verve. Used Dew Drops for my corners.
