Whiff of Joy Challenge #13

Here's my card for this week's Whiff of Joy Challenge. I loved the sketch - I came up with so many ideas for using it that I had a hard time deciding what to do! Ultimately I decided to keep to the sketch exactly.

It is so much fun coloring the Whiff of Joy images. They ink and stamp beautifully. I used VersaFine Onyx Black ink and embossed with Judi Kins Clear Detail embossing powder. After coloring the image with Copics, I inked the edges and matted it on 2 layers of cardstock. Lizzie's ear muffs and the puffs on her boots were puffed up with a puffy marker (heated).

The scalloped border was made with a Fiskars Threading Water punch, with pearls placed over each hole (made it easy-peasy to space them evenly, LOL!).

The corner embellishments are Stampin' Up! Filigree Brads, but instead of using the brads through the holes in the center, I glued the filigrees to the corners of the card and placed a pearl in each.

Cardstock: DCWV textured, SU Naight of Navy, Papertrey Stamper's Select white
Stamps: Image- Whiff of Joy "Lizzie With Muff", Sentiment- SeeD's Phrases Collection
Ink: VersaFine Onyx Black, SU Night of Navy
Embellishments: SU Filigree Brads, Martha Stewart Pearls, ribbon from my stash, Marvy Uchida Puffy Velvet marker, Sakura Gelly Roll Stardust
Clear glitter pen and Gelly Roll white pen.
