Great Love


I have made this card to enter in Katharina's Whiff of Joy Guest Designer call. It is so hard to sit down and decide what to do but in the end, I chose this Sweet Melinda Helping Angel because she is my favorite. The expression on her face is so incredibly tender. The sentiment is dear to me as it echoes to me the gentle caring of my dear Mum.

The sketch is Katharina's # 23. The sentiment is a SU! Rub-On that I had received and never opened the package. I had seen Katharina use this sentiment with this stamp and I just thought they were so perfectly paired. So this is another idea of hers I have incorporated into the card. I am so happy that I finally used these Rub-ons and i can see that I might become addicted. Super easy to use & Super results!

I changed the sketch slightly in that I have used an oval for the image rather than a square and the sentiment is slightly larger than the space allotted in the sketch!
  • Stamps: Whiff of Joy Guardian Angel Series
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, SU! Chocolate Chip (around the sentiment)
  • Paper: SU! Basic Grey, Bashful Blue, Memory Bos DP
  • Coloring: Copic Markers
  • Embellies: SU! Filigree Brad & Gemstone Brad, Rub-ons, Ribbon from stash

Hope the rest of your week-end is lovely!

Thanks for stopping by!
