W is for .... meets Friday Sketchers

Well, fairly obviously W is for Whiff of Joy, where the challenge this week is on the theme of green and purple, and over at ABC Challenge this week W is for Wallet card. And as I do love to have a sketch to follow, I thought I would lay out my wallet card front in line with this week's Friday Sketchers #35, which is a really fab sketch. Also, WOJ is one of the makes of stamp allowed for the Roses On Paper Challenge, which as luck would have it this week is a colour challenge - white, evergreen and grape.


To fulfil the WOJ and RoP challenges I have used the image "Willow with Cookies", kindly sent to me by my great friend Sharon. I coloured her with watercolour pencils and then doodled a little round the edges and decorated with a few purple heart gems. The image was matted onto purple cardstock and green K&Co paper. The paper has a corner swirl in line with the sketch, but I also decided to add a further flourish by punching with a Dovecraft border punch, decorated with more purple gems. This was then matted onto more purple cardstock and purple paper from the FF "Winter Snow" set. The background purple cardstock has been decorated with Cuttlebug Swirls die, and the green edges scallop cut with my new mega nestie rectangles. Hydrangeas are by Prima, charm brad by Dovecraft, other brad and ribbon from my stash. Sentiment is from the PB transparent set "Salutations".


I'm now starting to get enthusiastic about decorating the insides, so had another go. Papers are as before, and the swirl stamp was free with this month's Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine.



Thanks for looking!
