WHIFF OF JOY CHALLENGE NO. 20


And my next card for today is for Whiff of Joy Challenge No. 20 - "Lavender and Lace". Lavender/Lilac is one of my favourite colours, so I really enjoyed making this card. I have used one of my new stamps from the Whiff of Joy Spring Collection, called "Willow with Flower Basket". She has been coloured using a combination of Art-Kure WC Brushes, and Sukura Gel Pens, and then the image has been cut with a round nesty, and layered on lilac and grey card. The backing paper is a scrap left over from a previous project. I did not have any lace in my stash, so a thought I would make a "lookey-likey" with a Martha Stewart "Doily" Punch, by cutting a strip of card, and running both long sides through the punch. The card has then been finished off with some lilac brads, paper flowers, and a lilac bow. Many thanks for stopping by, and hope you have a lovely day.
