Whiff of Joy Challenge



Hello everyone and Happy Wednesday! I have another quick post for you this morning before I head off to work. I loved the sketch from last week's Whiff of Joy Challenge so I decided to use that as my layout. I inked up this new Blossom Fairy Charlotte with Memento Black Ink and colored her with copics. I added some Stickles to her wings and then cut the image out using my Circle Nestabilities. I then created my card base, which measures 5 1/2 out of 5 1/2, out of SU's Rose Red. I layered Regal Rose on top of that, followed by Chocolate Chip, followed by my design paper (retired from SU). I then used my scalloped circle nesties to cut out the scalloped circles, then adhered my image to the nesties and to the card base with dimensionals. I used my Fiskar's Threading Water punch on the bottom of the card and added a brown ribbon for a finishing touch.

I'd love to see what you think of my card. Thanks so much for stopping by. I'll be back tomorrow with another project.

Hugs, Christine :)
