Whiff of Joy Designer Call



I have decided to have another try at a guest designer spot on a Whiff of Joy as I just adore their stamps so much! This is my entry. I have used sketch 24 of Katharina's and have just moved the oval to off centre to balance the quote (the defination of inspiration, ideal for a DT challenge card, I thought) and to allow me to add a bow. The papers have been fauxed stitched and the image has been distressed around the outside as I did not like the effect that a border had, it took away from showing that the paper backing it is actually flowers and letters and postcards which match the image.


I have really enjoyed making this card, and I used only the girl from the Sugar Nellie (Elizabeth Bell - Postbox) as I have used the postbox on the envelope instead. I think it works brilliantly, I hope that you do too.



Image - Sugar Nellie - PostBox

Papers - K and Co - Life's Journey and Classic K
Ribbon - Papermania
Flowers - Prima
Jems - Hobbycraft
Medium - watercoloured

eta - the details of the DT Call can be found on Katharina's Blog
