Happy Saturday my friend! I hope you are having a quiet and tranquil weekend. I have a card to share with you today. It is an entry for the Whiff of Joy Challenge Blog. There is this lovely sketch, designed by talented Bev. I had to try it out! :) I had fun using this Willow image that was sent to me! Thank you hunny.. you know who you are!! I really appreciated the images! :)
I also had to use the new Papermania papers I bought last weekend from Gozo.. these Blueberry Hill papers are delish indeed!! The soft blue roses are so dreamy, and the Weathered Wood, Broken China, Scattered Straw and Antique linen Distress Inks really fit in well with the colour scheme. I glued Willow on the oval die cut from the bottom, and foam popped her from the waist up for more ral life look, and dimension.
I love the effect this gives to the image. I embellished with some pearls that complimented the soft coloured card, and made a band of lace on top of some ribbon behind the nesties. I distressed with ink all the papers, and the brownish flower as well. For the brown flower's centre, I used a blue centre kiss from Prima
For the round sentiments I used the circle of friendship round set, also used it on the inside with a different saying. Also for the inside I used some coordinating papers, not the Blueberry ones, I'm sorry but couldn't make myself tear more up for the inside!! :)
The small flowers above the lace are punch-outs, and I used Basic Grey brads, which always make a card more beautiful. I love those brads! Willow wants to say hi to you as well, and she wishes you the best! She would like to thank you in advance for the time you spent here with her, and mostly for those who leave her a comment. She sends you some of the flowers in her hand :)
This is a detail of the colouring. Sorry for some blotches in the face that show when you make the image bigger. They don't show IRL, they come out because I use water-based inks on regular cardstock.
Hopefully will be back tomorrow or Monday.. this time for another Roses on Paper Challenge for you to have fun with!
Thanks for looking
