WHIFF OF JOYS MATTHEW WITH PRESENT




Hello crafters, hope you are all having a lovely weekend so far, a couple of posts from me today, and I will start off with a card for Whiff of Joy Challenge No. 13 - Sketch by Heather. I have used an old favourite of mine from Whiff of Joy called Matthew with Present. I have coloured him with my WC Brushes, and used a Sukure Gel pen to highlight the wings, stitches on his jumper, and stripes on the ribbon. I layered the image on silver card, and the backing paper was printed from a Summertime Designs download called Happy Fathers Day. For my scalloped edge, I cut some blue card with a scalloped square nesty, and then trimmed three edges, and only left on scalloped side. I also ran the same blue card through a Cuttlebug "Swiss Dots" Embossing Folder, for the centre element of the Sketch. The card was finished off with four blue gems from my craft stash in each corner. Thanks for stopping by, and hope to see you soon.
