Whiff Of Joy

Morning all! Hope it is lovely and sunny with you today like it is today in Aberdeen! Not warm but very fresh!!

Todays card is for this weeks Whiff of Joy sketch challenge. It is another great sketch from Heather.

I coloured Melinda in the rain with distress inks have added dew drops for rain (thanks so much Rach!). I have distressed and sewn the edges. The pink DP is from Pink Paislee, the 'Pop Fashion' collection. It already had the scallop edges on the piece of patterned paper, so one less job to do!

I embossed the blue piece of card and then sanded so you can see the core colour. the flowers are from my stash and the ribbon is from a past Raspberry Ribbons kit. I put the ribbon in the other direction from the sketch as you would not have been able to see it if I had followed the sketch exactly

Here is how I've done the inside. I decided that if I have time to do the insides I will keep them quick and simple, otherwise I would only manage one card a week!!

Have a great Tuesady..off to tackle the mound of washing!

I adore this Judy, everything about it is beautiful! It's lovely to see that embossed panel behind the image, makes a nice change from patterned papers sometimes I think! The dew drops are an excellent idea and I think the simple layout inside works so well, like you say it gives you more time to work on the front, lol!
Another expert card, I really enjoy looking at your creations! xx

Beautiful card Judy and I so love the inside, they can be more time consuming but make such a huge difference to the card.

About my sponging technique, I use All Night Media blending chalks with some cotton wool to get a faint colour going in circular motions and then ink around the edges with a darker colour. I normally use a Colorbox fluid chalk inkpad, hope this was useful!
