Hello everyone, I am so enjoying my week off work, but unfortunately all good things have to come to an end, and I will be back to the grind-stone on Monday, so better enjoy the rest of my time off by doing something I enjoy.... Crafting! This Challenge I have completed, comes from a NEW Challenge Blog for Whiff of Joy. Check out their NEW Challenge Blog site, by clicking on my link. So, for this Whiff of Joy Challenge No. 1 - Sketch by Katharina, I have chosen to use Whiff of Joy's Melinda Helping Angel. Using my favourite Art-Kure Watercolour Brushes, I have coloured her in, and then cut the image out using my scalloped round Nestie, and have done the same for the second circle. My base backing paper is handmade using Moonshadow Inks. I have then used two pieces of left-over scraps of backing paper from a previous project, but they were originally printed from a Funky Hand Paper Collection CD. Each piece of paper has been layered on some lilac pearlescent cardstock. The sentiment has come from a rub-on, which was a FREEBIE out of a craft magazine. For the final touches, I have added a piece of lilac ribbon, and a lovely silk flower with a gem brad added to the middle.
Hope you enjoyed your visit, and pop back soon. Happy Crafting X
