Good morning all. I made this card last night for the Whiff of Joy challenge #97 - Love is in the air. I used some papers and a sentiment that were free from a mag. I inked the edges and put it together following the sketch on Creative Inspirations sketch #97.
I used this older WOJ image - Lizzie with chocolates, coloured with Copics. I wasn't happy with my colouring and thought I might disguise it by inking around the edge. I used distress inks first, but it didnt look pink toned, it looked more like dirty brown, so I ended up going over with a mix of Distress ink and a pink Brilliance, thats why it looks over done. I suppose I shouldnt be so honest and pretend this is exactly what I had in mind. Oh well the cats out of the bag now.
I added flowers from Wild Orchid, that I glittered slightly on the edges and this cute little Cupid charm that I found in stash.
Lastly I added some black pearls and mini black gems, which I have just noticed I put on after I took this photo.
I decided to use the last bits of paper up, so carried the same basic sketch design through on the inside. Kept it pretty plain, without bulky embellishments and blank, so that I can write in it or add verse or something later.
I am also entering it into these challenges
