How exciting the First Whiff of Joy Challenge!



Love my Whiff of Joy stamps, so the challenge will definitely be a favorite! Especially starting off with a sketch from Katharina! Now for my first Whiff of Joy Challenge entry I decided to blow the DT girls and kiss and wish them a great success. Here is Melinda blowing Kisses all colored in purple with my Copic Markers, Spica Glitter Pens, Sakura Glaze Pens and white gel pen. I cut her out with my Nestibilities Oval and matted with a larger oval Core'dinations purple card stock.
I used this for the base as well. For the circle shadow I used a light green piece of Core'dinations. I sanded all of these pieces to give them that shabby look. The pattern papers are all My Minds Eye, and are cut and inked with purple ink. I gel pen stitched down everything, seemed to help pop the individual pieces as they are all so close in color. Now I thought it needed flowers, so I added two small flowers to the top box, and centered them with Martha Stewart adhesive pearls. Love this sketch, gonna save it for sure. Don't forget to run over and check out the Whiff of Joy Challenge and give it a go... if you don't have your Whiff of Joy stamps make sure to check out the Store - HERE - and see just how cute they all are! I Love them!
Well it is MIL shopping day. Yep the day I run my errands and my take my MIL to run hers, I hope it is a short day, as I have lots I need to get done at home as well.
And thanks so much for the GREAT response to my Blog Candy below! WOW woke up to lots of comments! It means so much that you are all taking the time to spread the word and help me celebrate!
