After a kind of rough week with my two year old Amy being operated to remove her tonsils I took some time to myself yesterday to craft... nothing like a little bit of coloring to help me relax :). I decided to color op sweet Nora blowing kisses, a stamp that was part of the last release by Whiff of Joy. I loved all of the last releases by Whiff of Joy and decided to enter into the Whiff of Joy Guest Designer call. I did this with my new years-card two posts back but I now think this card would have been better. I did see some people entered two cards but I'm not sure if I should yet. What do you think... is this one better? Here it is: Nora was again so much fun to color, as are all Alison Acton's stamps. Here is a close up of little Nora:
I'll give you the Copic colors I used later today. The flowers are mostly by Wild Orchid Crafts and the papers are Basic Grey Green at heart and craft cardstock I bought from Elzybells which unfortunatelly doesn't exist anymore :(. As always I did the image in 3D and decided to take a picture to show you the image from the side... Just to show you how many layers it has:
As you'll probably be able to see I also added some stickles :). The sentiment reads "Dikke verjaardagszoenen" which is Dutch for "Big birthdaykisses" which I thought was just perfect for this stamp. The sentiment is by Kars if I'm not mistaking, it's part of a clear stamp set and the impression isn't the best so I had to go over it with a marker... I truly don't like clear stamps!
I'm entering this card into the Paper Sundaes challenge of this week which is distressing, I have distressed all of the edges of the papers with brown ink from again Elzybells (such a shame they closed, their materials were of such high quality!).
Hope you like my card!!!! Have a perfect sunday!!!
