WHIFF OF JOY,CHALLENGE 1....."SKETCH BY KATHARINA"...AND CARD FOR GUEST DT CALL,



Whiff Of Joy,challenge 1 is a sketch by Katharina,and i must say a great sketch to work with.I've used another new stamp today which i had a few weeks back but just hadn't got round to using it,too many stamps,so little time...lol
Whiff Of Joy stamp "Melinda reading book"coloured with Promarkers and Prisma's cut out and raised using 3d foam pads.I wanted to make Melinda a bit of a dark angel,not evil,but alittle naughty,reading the hidden secrets of her diary...lol,her face is a bit red,is she blushing or have i gone ott on the cheeks...lol
Papers all HOTP,scroll stamp also HOTP.
Circles cut using nestabilities.
Sentiment Doodlebug rub-ons.
Bookmark made with beads from stash.
I've decided to enter this card in Katharina's Whiff Of Joy guest DT call.

oh my, that is just a beautiful card-I love the colors and the "secret" part is so clever-I always assume she is reading a book-but the diary thing is super cute!
Just stunning-thanks for sharing!
