**WOW...I sure have a busy blog this week....another double post day today please scroll down for my Stamps and Smiles New Release Day 3 Preview post! There is a FREE DIGI IMAGE available so make sure you check out that post!!!**
Hi Whiff of Joy Friends! How are you all doing this lovely Wednesday...wow another two weeks have come and gone...where does the time go?! Before I know it I will be back in classes....NOOOO can't I stay and craft all day? hee hee!
Before we get to this fortnight's challenge we have some sad DT news over at the WOJ Challenge Blog. Unfortunately, both our beloved team members, Donalda and Jacqui, have decided to step down from their positions with the team. You both are going to be missed extremely! You both have been a HUGE inspiration to me and got me to where I am today and are such amazing friends!!! Thanks so much to both of you!!!
Now onto our new challenge which is a sketch by our beloved Jane! This week you have a chance to win a gift certificate of $25 to Simon Says Stamp thanks to Heidi!
Here's my take on Jane's Sketch....sorry hun, I added a few more layers in there...my fingers wouldn't stop!
Willow with Coffee to Go for my card. I can't believe I haven't colored her until now...she's definitely one of my favorites...although I like to think she is drinking chai as that is my FAVORITE drink...have to have me a cup every day...sometimes two! (*Wink* to my friends Jennifer and Jennifer....at CHA I got them hooked on Tazo Chai too!!! Love you two!) For my card, I went again with a vintage feel...I am really liking the vintage/shabby chic look! Papers are from the Basic Grey Green at Heart Collection and have all been distressed with TH Tea Dye ink. My Distress-It-All was used to distress the edges of the dp! Love that thing makes distressing sooooo easy...although my hubby says "Gee that's a loud tool you got there!" Like his tools in the garage aren't loud! Geesh!
Here's Jane's Sketch. As you can tell I did go a bit askew by throwing in a few more elements and swapping the Circle for an Oval.
Copics and accented with a white gel pen. I've added Diamond Glaze to her sunglasses for the gloss look. My Viva Decor Rose Paper Pen was used to create the pearls on her bracelet. Image was cut out with my SB Mega Ovals and popped up on a SB Mega Scalloped Oval. 3mm Spice self-adhesive pearls (from Wild Orchid Crafts) were used to accent my scalloped oval. To finish off the image I used my stampabilities stamp to create the border around Miss. Willow. For the heart....I took an already pink dolie heart and spritz it first with Cotton Candy Shimmerz Spritz (that's 25%off -->HERE<--) and after that dried I then spritzed it with Tattered Angels Bronze Glimmer Mist for more of an antique feel.
Of course we can't make a card without using some amazing Wild Orchid Craft flowers! :) I went with the two tone champagne-pink look for this flower arrangement and used a flat Gardenia, two 30mm Wild Roses, and two 15mm roses.
Now make sure you head over to the WOJ Challenge to see what the other DT members have made! :)
