Whiff of Joy Guest Designer Call

Whiff of Joy is having a call for a guest designer, and I decided to enter. For the entry, you need to create a card or scrapbook page based on this sketch provided by Katharina, and using at least one Whiff of Joy stamp. You can find all of the details on the Whiff of Joy group on Paper Craft Planet. What?!? You're not a member yet?!? What are you waiting for? Follow the link here, or the button in my side bar and go join!

I chose Willow with Hot Chocolate for my entry since she is my all time favorite Whiff of Joy stamp. She's just so sweet!

I decided to use some pretty, but retired, SU designer paper that I've been hoarding, and based my color scheme on the paper. I colored Willow with copic markers, highlighted her outfit with a white gel pen, and then highlighted her hair with a Sakura gelly roll pen. I like the shimmer of the Sakura pen better than white highlights on dark hair. It just seems more realistic to me. The mug was covered with SU Crystal Effects to give a ceramic-like finish. It is really nice in real life, trust me on that one!

Willow was layered onto SU card stock in Close to Cocoa and Regal Rose to match the designer paper. I added brown sheer ribbon (found in the $1 bin at Michael's) and Prima flowers with pearl centers to finish off the card.

Don't forget, you can click on any photo to make it larger if you want to see a detail a bit better. Thanks for stopping by!
