Whiff of joy challenge dt

Can you believe that its been two weeks since the last challenge for whiff of joy challenges, time is certainly running away from me these dasy, they say as you get older time seems to go faster, but i never believed it till now.  Well time now for another challenge on WOJ challenge blog, and this week we have a great sketch by the very talented Kim.

I seem to have gone a little monochrome mad these days, feeling the same i geuss that its just my mood reflected in my work.  I had to use the bride and swing, since they are so neglected since i have so many new stamps to play with, i also used lots of my cuttlebug embossing folders that never see the light of day, added a touch of diamond stickles to help some of the flower fantasy embossing, image was colored with copics, and then i added tow different colored roses, essentially they are both shades of white i geuss, he he.  Added lots of diamond stickles to my brides veil and voila!

Challenges are so much fun since you can win something and then of course since we are using a sketch this week it couldnt be easier so i hope you'll pop along and join us.

  6. Hi Paola
    What a stunning card!
    I just love the image and the colouring is great.
    Whiff of Joy stamps are my favourite stamps.

  7. Wow Paola you really do mono well. I love the understated colouring and the embossing- a beaut of a card

  8. Hi Paola, this is simply stunning! Love Sarah x

  9. There is so much detail in this & the total effect is one of such continuity & sophistication of design that I've revisited this time & time again to look more closely. Just a joy & so educational for me.
    Thank you.
