Today’s Whiff of Joy Challenge is “Love is in the Air. I hadn’t used my “Nora blowing Kisses” image yet and thought it would be perfect for this challenge. The image was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a 4″ square of Neenah Solar White cardstock. The image was colored with Copic Markers (Skin: E000, E00, E01, E11, BV00 Hair: Y23, Y26, E35, E97 shoes/dress: Booo, B12, B14, B16 hearts/socks: YR07, R08, R27, R39 Ground: W4, W5, W7 background: W00, W0, W1). Stardust Stickles was added over the hearts.
The edges of the image square were distressed and Picket Fence Crackle Paint was added to the edges. Once it was dry the edges were sponged with Pumice Stone Distress ink and a border was stitched around the edges. The image was adhered to a piece of Kraft cardstock, cut and embossed with the largest of the Beaded Square Nestabilities dies.
A 2″ x 4 3/4″ piece of October Afternoon Farmhouse paper was stitched to a 4 3/4″ square of the same paper pack. A hole was punched to the lower right corner of the image layers and White Organdy ribbon was threaded through it. The image layer was adhered to the paper with dimensionals and the ribbon was tied into a bow.
The layers were adhered to the card base a 5″ x 11″ piece of Solar White cardstock folded in half. The bottom edge of the card base was cut and embossed with Classic Scallop Edgeabilities dies. A sentiment from the General Sayings sentiment set was stamped on a strip of Solar White cardstock. The edges of the strip were punched with a square punch, the strip was shaped into a banner and adhered under the ribbon bow. Rhinestones on the sentiment panel and the upper right hand corner of the image and parts of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl finish off the card.
Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you have time to participate in the challenge. Have a wonderful day!
