WOJ #88 - A Special Thank You

Happy Wednesday~

Are you ready for another Whiff of Joy Challenge?  This week we are celebrating a very special milestone over at the WOJ Challenge's our TWO YEAR ANNIVERSARY!!!!  And seeing how we wouldn't have a wonderful challenge blog without our Whiff of Joy stamps.....this challenge we are devoting to a Special Thank You Challenge!  We would love to thank Whiff of Joy, Katharina (owner of WOJ), Simon Says Stamp, present and past DT members, and most importantly you our followers and participants because without all of you we wouldn't have this fun challenge blog! 
I've used one of my favorite WOJ stamps, Willow with Hot Chocolate.  Papers are from the TH Vintage Shabby Collection.  Sentiment is from MFT.  I also got to use my new Magnolia Doohicky Dies on this beauty!

Willow was colored with Copics and accented with a white gel pen.  She was cut out with a SB Labels 14 and then the background has been airbrushed with B000, B01, W1, W3, and W5.  The label was then popped up onto my Marianne Frame Die
Flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Arrangement 1 consists of a 25mm Rose, Cherry Blossoms, 15mm rose, and pink crystal stems.  Flowers were accented with Star Dust Stickles.
Arrangement 2 consists of 4mm closed rosebuds, 5mm closed rosebud, Gypsophila Stem, pearl sprays, pearl stars.  The bow was made with my Bow Easy, I just love the double sided ribbon.
Here is an angled view of Willow.  Here you can see the Star Dust Stickles that I have used on her shirt, pocket, and flowers on her jeans.  You also can see the Diamond Glaze that I added over her mug to make it appear more real.

All your detail is amazing - love that double-sided ribbon & those clear sparkly gems. I could sit for hours just drinking in the detail. Willow's face is so realistic with the hot chocolate warming her too.

Good heavens, I'm either smitten or addicted to your crafts, I don't know which, and this one, good grief. Love the grande part of the sentiment, made me smile and chuckle. Your coloring of her takes my breath away, this redefines stunning!
