Whiff Of Joy Challenge

Finally time for a card...
We're preparing for a trip to Iceland, so its a bit hectic at the moment :-)

This one is for the Whiff of Joy Challenge, a lovely sketch from Katharina this time!

I couldnt find the right colour flowers, so I've painted fabric ones with a sparkly watercolour paint. It matches a lot better now :-)
I also dont have a scalloped punch or something, so I punched flowers instead and lined them up to make a sort of scalloped edge. I think it worked rather nice.

Melinda is coloured with Distress Inks and Adirondack inks.
Around her are a few splatters of the sparkly watercolours.
This close up shows a better view of it.

Thanks for looking!


Stamp: Whiff of Joy
Colouring: Distress Inks, Adirondack Inks, Sparkly watercolour paint
