WOJ #78 - Jane's Sketch

 Hello Friends~

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you are all enjoying your week!  As I said yesterday my week is a little stressful with classes winding down for the semester.  Today I have to give a group presentation for my HR Management class....a little nervous as I don't like to speak in front of people...so I will be VERY excited when the presentation is over!  Then it's off to write two papers....I am getting super excited for the weekend that's for sure! I'm taking a break from studying for finals to spend the day with my family and friends for my cousin's bachelorette party....I'm standing up in her wedding in 2 weeks so Saturday we are having a total girls day/night!  It will be a blast!  That's my light at the end of the tunnel for this week!

Now onto crafty things....seeing how it's Wednesday that means in WOJ Challenge Day!  Woo-Hoo!  First off, thank you very much for those people who played along with our money holder challenge!   This week we have some special news to share with all of you....our challenges are moving to every other week....we are hoping that by giving you two weeks to play along with a challenge more people will be able to join in our fun! This week's challenge is a sketch challenge by our very talented Jane!  You have until May 18th to play along!
This week I have gone with a shabby chic style!  I wanted to use pink and green and then make it chic so out came my TH Distress Crackle Paints in White and Rock Candy!  All edges of papers were painted with both Crackle Paints.  The pink panel behind Willow was cut out with my Oval Nestie, then embossed with my SU folder and finally I painted over it with my White Crackle Paint.  Paper are from the BG Porcelein collection.
 Here is Jane's lovely sketch!  Love the swirls!
Willow in Summer Breeze was colored with Copics, and accented with a white gel pen.  The apples on her dress we topped with my Viva Decor Transparent Gloss Pen for some shine!  Her bracelet colored with a Viva Decor Light Carmine Paper Pen and then I added Glamour Dust to the top for lots of sparkle and bling.  The Scalloped Oval edges were also painted with Crackle paint and the pearls on the top left were made with my Viva Ice White Pearl Pen.  Can you tell I absolutely love the Viva products?!  They are so reasonable for the amount of product that you get! 
For my swirl I added some Sizzix swirls with a Wild Orchid Crafts Rose and Prima Hydrangea.  Pearls again were with the Viva Pearl Pen and the butterfly gemstone charm is one that I picked up at HL over Easter.
Finally the double bow was made with my Bow Easy!  Again, my favorite tool....I so love being able to make bows...and it really is easy to use!!!

This challenge's prize is being offered by the wonderful Katharina and it is the Girl with Lamb stamp!  Speaking of sweet things, you need to head over to Katharina's blog...she is offering up some GREAT Candy.....the NEW Get Well Soon Collection will be going to one lucky winner!

Hi Kim!! I have to apologize...it's been a while since I've left you a comment! I have been peeking in on your blog though, and you have been one busy girl! This card is simply gorgeous. I love every little detail you put into it. I have to admit, I am intrigued with the Viva products after seeing you use them so beautifully. LOL...I think I first saw Smooch Illuminate here on your blog, and finally bought myself some this past weekend!

Thanks so much for sharing your creative genius with all of us!!
