Whiff of Joy Challenge



My special friend Lorraine sent me this lovely stamped image of Willow so I decided to take part in the Whiff of Joy Challenge which this week was called 'Lavender & Lace'. I coloured Willow using Watercolour Crayons then matted her onto lavender card using my Victorian Blade to give a delicate edge. My base layer is A6 in size which I covered with a sheet of paper from my Papermania Creative Tones - Amethyst pack. I took a piece of Lace from my stash to put down the left hand side before mounting Willow onto the lace and the card. 3 Tiny gems have been added along with a Lavender fabric flower and a small lilac flower brad and gem to the bottom of the card. I am thrilled with the end result, especially as Lavender is my favourite colour.

Hi Christine

Many thanks for your lovely comments and the welcome you gave me into the blogging world.

You certainly have an eye for colour.

I feel I have so much to learn - but am enjoying myself.
