I found some time in my craft room today and made another card to enter into the Whiff of Joy Challenges GDT search. The theme is Pearls and Swirls. This time I decided to work with Shopping Willow from the New City Girls Collection. I like to think of this image as me on a good shopping day. Yeah, right. Here she is...
Isn't she pretty? I'd like to come home with that many bags when I go shopping! Anyway, the dp's were the inspiration. They already have the 'Swirls' on them. They're from the BG Sugar Rush collection and I just love em'! The cs is SU, as usual. I used my MS punch for the beautiful lattice work and added a soft bow with craft store ribbon. I cut out the image with my Nestabilities and added some sunny yellow shading to the edge with my Distress Ink. The green pearls in the corners are actually brads, but I cut the backs off of them because I had already secured the dp to the cs. I added Stickles to Willow's necklace for a little bling bling, as well as to the tissue paper in the bags.
I watercolored Willow with Distress Inks, except for her skin, which I colored with Copic markers.
That's all I have for today. I'll be taking my best girl, my 7 year old puppy dog, back to the orthopedic surgeon tomorrow so I won't have any time for crafting. Hopefully on Tuesday. I hope you all find some time to color!
Ciao for now,
