Whiff of Joy Challenge #13
Here's my card for this week's Whiff of Joy Challenge. I loved the sketch - I came up with so many ideas for using it that I had a hard time deciding what to do! Ultimately I decided to keep to the sketch exactly.
It is so much fun coloring the Whiff of Joy images. They ink and stamp beautifully. I used VersaFine Onyx Black ink and embossed with Judi Kins Clear Detail embossing powder. After coloring the image with Copics, I inked the edges and matted it on 2 layers of cardstock. Lizzie's ear muffs and the puffs on her boots were puffed up with a puffy marker (heated).
The scalloped border was made with a Fiskars Threading Water punch, with pearls placed over each hole (made it easy-peasy to space them evenly, LOL!).
The corner embellishments are Stampin' Up! Filigree Brads, but instead of using the brads through the holes in the center, I glued the filigrees to the corners of the card and placed a pearl in each.
