Whiff of Joy – Willow writing recipes

I didn’t think I was going to get this posted today, I have not been feeling too grand and couldn’t be faffed to turn the computer on, now that’s got hubby worried cos he thinks I’m married to the blessed thing.  So if I have not answered your emails please bear with me, I will get round to it as quick as I can. 

I have not made a card for days I’m afraid, this is one I did a while back.  I have used Willow writing recipes and have made another easel card.  I have used some more ancient papers – Anna Griffin and Craft Creations.  I wanted something bright and cheerful and as far removed as anything remotely Christmassy and these fitted the bill.  The image is coloured with Copics.  I so need more blues – had to do a lot of mixing of two colours by picking up the darker colour off an acrylic block with the lighter colour to get the shading on her jeans.

The flowers are just punched with Woodware daisy punches using the DP’s and paper I used for matting.  The pearl brads and spacers are from The Hobby House.  The gorgeous sentiment is by Rachelle Anne Miller from Stampavie.  I just adore the beautiful font she has used.

  5. I think your colouring is just as good with copics as it is with distress inks and H20's. This is a fresh and beautiful card and is lovely to see at this time of the year.
    Happy crafting

  50. This is lovely, Bev! I especially like the coloring on the stool. If you are looking for more blues to add to your copic collection, I highly recommend B97, B95, B93, and B91 as good blues for jeans. They have a nice gray tint that is perfect for denim fabric.

    Happy Holidays!
