Whiff of Joy #20


Wow, two posts in one day. :)

Oooh...The theme for this week's Whiff of Joy Challenge is Lavender & Lace. I love them both. This is another double challenge card, using the SCS Sketch 218 Still have several of the new Spring WOJ girls to use, and this one is called Kneeling Willow, colored with Prismas and blended with baby oil. Cut her out with Nestabilities Labels and chalked around her with Pebbles shimmery chalks in a pale yellow that just vanished for this photo. :) Both DP's are from Anna Griffin, rest of CS is plain ivory, all edged with ink. Ran the lace through my Xyron then patted lavender, velvet and dune Colorbox Queues over it to "age" it and make it match. Made the flowers and the urge to use Stickles overcame me and I dotted a bit in the center of the flowers.

Stamps: Whiff of Joy Kneeling Willow.
Paper: Anna Griffin DP, The Paper Studio CS.
Ink: Stazon, Colorbox Queues.
Accessories: Nestabilities, lace, foam tape, flower and leaf punches, Stickles.

weet card... I have been seeing those little leaf thingies on a lot of people's cards... are they a die punch? I just bought a fiskars boarder punch that does the corners too and it punches something that when I first seen it it reminded me of those little leaves and I was thrilled that I too will have some like that to use too!! I really like the lavendar!

You made the flowers?? they are fabulous! I haven't tried using baby oil with my colored pencils yet either...maybe I'll dig them out today and dedicate my card to you :-)
