Whiff of Joy # 69...A Sketch by Jane...Joy!


Good morning! It's Wednesday and that means it's Whiff of Joy Challenges day! We really enjoyed seeing all your beautiful creations with the the fabulous coffee and cream colour combo! This week Jane has designed a beautiful sketch for us to follow! Remember you have to use a Whiff of Joy stamped image on your card to be eligible for the prize! We have also started a new feature to the Whiff of Joy challenge. We will be selecting the top 3 cards and the top 3 picks will get our fab Top 3 blinkie designed by the oh so talented and sweet, Martine!
So, now on to my card....I tried something new with this card and I rather like how it turned out! I was originally going to stamp this sweet image from the Whiff of Joy Kit, Birdie love, on Neenah paper, colour it with my Copics and cut it out but then I wondered how it would look if I stamped the image in Rich Cocoa Memento ink directly on the tag and forgo the colouring process.
I had this chip board tag in my stash so I covered it with pp, sanded the edges and inked with Distress inks! I also wanted to used this Prima flower as it has a sheet music pattern on it and I thought that went nicely with this little song bird, Willow has perched on her hand. The flower came in a two pack and the pic below shows the packaging. I really liked the laser cut pattern on the packaging and I wondered how I could incorporate it into my card. Then I decided to use it as a stencil and sponged with Victorian Velvet Distress ink on the cornor the tag.
I also cut the Quickutz nameplate from the craft cardstock packaging and stamped the sentiment from the Winter 2009 kit. I used some of my favourite American Crafts ribbon, MME and MM brads.
Here is the inside...this sentiment is from the Birdie Love kit as well!
Well, thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek at my Whiff of Joy Challenges card! I hope you can join us this week as Jane's sketch is just lovely to work with and the WOJ DT has made such gorgeous cards to inspire you. I know you won't want to miss this week's challenge!
Have a stampin' great day!
Hugs,
