WOJ Challenge #13


I don't own any WOJ stamps (yet!) so I haven't been participating in the WOJ Challenge too much; but I so love the cute mouse stamp on offer for this week's prize that I was determined to have a go. So I rummaged amongst my RAK's and found this gorgeous "Willow with Cookies", kindly sent to me by Sharon.

This week's challenge is a sketch - I found this really easy to work with and am sure I'll use it again.

I coloured Willow with watercolour pencils and matted onto card where the bootm edge was cut with Docrafts mulitshpaer punch "Flower Garden". Background papers are BasicGrey "Two Scoops", and I have matted the central panel paper onto card scalloped using my new mega-nesties. Flowers are all Prima and I have used spacers for the first time (only just found out what these are!). Buttons are Doodlebug, and pearl brads by Papermania. I cut the sentiment using the Cuttlebug "Friends Forever" folder.
I also had my first go at decorating the inside of a card - kept it fairly simple with co-ordinating papers and a sentiment by Penny Black.

I would also like to enter this card into the My Time to Craft Challenge #43,which this week is Food, Glorious Food .... mmm, those cookies lol!
