Whiff of Joy Design Team Call Entry Card


Katharina has announced a new guest design team call on her blog. She is looking for1-3 people with excellent colouration skills. Full details can be found here along with the sketch you need to use for your card.
Here is my entry. I have used Willow with small baby for my card, coloured in distressed inks and H2O's. I did not have the shade of H2O I required for the dress so I mixed Weathered Wood distressed ink with my glimmer mist hydranger (used on the white flowers) to give a sparkle. My papers are a mixture of K and Co Life's journey and Laura Ashley flocked blues. They have been distressed with vintage photo and tea dye, as have the ribbon and lace from my stash. I have distressed my luggage tags from Tim Holtz and added those instead of a sentiment. The flowers are wildorchardcrafts.
I do hope you like
hugs Vicky x
