Whiff Of Joy's GD challenge which is currently running. I love the Whiff Of Joy range of stamps so to be able to work with them for a couple of months would be a dream job!
The challenge is to follow a recipe -
1 x cardstock, 2 x pieces of patterned paper, 1 ribbon and 1 button! This was SO hard to do as I do like to embellish my cards with extra little bits but I am quite proud of myself as I followed this recipe to the letter. (I did wrap my piece of ribbon around my card twice but I did only use one piece so hopefully this is ok!!)
The papers I used were by Bo Bunny (black) and Basic Grey (light blue). As you can see I embellished my one piece of cardstock by punching it with my Martha Stewart Eyelet Lace punch that came from Stamp Addicts. I also added a little subtle stamping to the background papers too by using my Judikins Mince Flourish stamp (also from Stamp Addicts) around the edges of the papers but I kept this very muted so that all the focus would be on the main image. Then in two of the corners I applied some dots of Baby Blue Liquid Pearls
Copics. I also subtlety stamped that Mince Flourish again around the edges of the panel using a light blue inkpad and then overstamped the wording which came from the Tiny Phrases stamp set by Woodware.
Lastly I added some faux stitching with a fine black pen and then applied some Stardust glitter glue to parts of Willow, the grass area and around the main panel.
