I was so thrilled to get my WOJ Spring stamp Kit this week! Ya know the one that I won, YAY!!! I'm still so excited about that cuz I never win anything,lol!!!! Not anything this fabulous!!!! They are all so darling...love 'em!!! So, I went to check out the WOJ Challenges blog to see what they had in store for this week's challenge and was super excited to see Katharina's fabulous sketch and that there is a GDT call on, be sure to go check out all the details!!!!
Well, I knew I wanted to give it another go and I knew exactly what I was going to do with this sketch too, as, I picked up this new gorgeous Pink Paislee paper at Crop Circles in Peterborough! I'm soooooo loving this paper it is the Pop Fashion Collection by Holly McCaig! The colours are an interesting combination of periwinkle blue, pink and olive green but surprisingly are really beautiful together and I just love the tartan patterned paper called Bermuda Shorts, cute name, eh!?
I made a card base 6x6 from pink Bazzill Basics paper and matted the patterned paper panels on some scraps of gorgeous periwinkle blue Prism Carstock. Then, I used my new Martha Stewart Embossed Flowers border punch that I thought would go nicely with the Martha Stewart Hydrangea flower punches that I used as layers over some pretty Prima pansies and Imaginisce sheer flowers.
I decided to use Kneeling Willow from the Spring Kit for the main image and I stamped her on Georgia Pacific cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured her with my Copic markers and Twinkling H2Os and used white acrylic paint for the highlights! I cut the image with my curvy rectangle Nesties, sponged the edges with my fave Metallic Rub-ons and added Diamond Stickles!
I rubbed the antique gold Metallic rub-ons on the edges of the card and all over, here and there, to give it a bit of a distressed look and a little shine too and to finish it off I used some new satin ribbon that I got on sale at Micheals this week and the sentiments are Kelly Panacci stamps!
Well, there you have! I will keep my fingers crossed and my toes too,lol! I would soooooooo love to be the GDT for WOJ!!!
Thanks for stopping by and having a wee look!
