My First Whiff of Joy ~ Friday Sketchers Challenge

I received my order from Katharina's Whiff Of Joy line and couldn't wait to ink the stamps up! I am partial to angels so I had to pick this one to work with first. Isn't she gorgeous? I love that her eyes are so big! Now, my Stazon pad is in serious need of re-inking and I have ordered some but haven't received it yet. The image isn't as darkly stamped as I would have liked, especially the eyes, so I colored them with a blue wash of distress ink and I kinda like that effect! I used the sketch from this week's Friday Sketchers and used this gorgeous paper that is already embossed and covered in glitter and it is in my favorite color! The little embellishments are Swarovski Crystals from my jewlery-making stash and the glittery thread is left over from a cross-stitch project! So I was really making do with what I already had!

  • Stamps: Whiff of Joy Charlotte & Charlie by Alison Acton, Sentiment: PaperTrey
  • Ink: Stazon Jet Black, SU! Blue Bayou for sentiment
  • Paper: SU! Blue Bayou, CM Metallic Silver, DP Best Creations Inc., Vellum for Sentiment
  • Coloring: Distress Inks
  • Embellies: Thread DMC, Handmade Swarovski crystal pendants

Enjoy the rest of your week-end and thank-you for stopping by and visiting!

Wow Jeanette!! Looove your card. She really looks like an angel with your soft, shiny colouring. Perfect!
Thanks for sharing :)

Very lovely card :-)
You had the EXACT same problem I had when receiving the stamps - my StazOn was too light as well but my reinker was elsewhere so I just made do with it as well. Funny you picked the same stamp as well :-)
Gotta love her.
