Whiff of Joy Challenge



Hi everyone and Happy Monday! :) I'm finally back, I'm sorry for my long absence. It felt so good to get back into the craft room this morning :)

For my card today, I decided to ink up this adorable Whiff of Joy Angel, Melinda with bouquet. My card is my entry for this week's WOJ Challenge Blog. Our challenge this week was an awesome sketch challenge. I'll definitely be using this layout again.

To create my card, I first inked my image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, stamped it onto PTI cardstock, and colored it with copics. It's hard to see from the picture, but I added some Shimmerz to the flowers in her hand and some Diamond Stickles to her wings. I then inked around the image using SU's Close to Cocoa ink. Next, I created my card base, which measures 5 1/2 by 5 1/2, out of SU's Sage Shadow cardstock. I layered PTI's Sweet Blush on top of that followed by SU's Close to Cocoa. I then layered my design paper, from K & Co., and then adhered my image to my cardstock and to the card base with dimensionals. For some finishing touches, I added Primas and Kaisercraft Pearls (Blush). What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. I hope all my US blogging friends are having a wonderful Memorial Day. Also, don't forget that today kicks off the start of the Stampin Out Alzheimer's Event. See my sidebar to register. For a $5 donation, you can treat yourself to a week filled with fun challenges and prizes. All proceeds go to funding for research for Alzheimer's disease, which is such a wonderful cause. Well, I hope you all are having a wonderful Monday. I'll see you back here tomorrow with another project.

Lots of Hugs, Christine :)
