WOJ Challenge #40...........




Hello Everyone,

After a spending most of the day napping and lounging around , I finally mustered up some energy to complete my card for this weeks WOJ Challenge. This weeks WOJ Challenge is to make a card based on a sketch designed by the talented Donalda. Thanks for the inspiration Donalda!



I colored my image (Melinda Hugging Heart) in with Copic Markers and I went a little overboard adding shading effects along the seam of her jeans. I didn't realize how deep the shadows were until after I photographed my image but in a mild way, I sort of like it! The card stock is by Bazzill and Papertrey Ink. The design paper is by DoodleBug. To add a bit of texture, I ran my circle piece through the CuttleBug using my Swiss Dots embossing folder.



To embellish my card, I used Shimmerz (Candle Light) on the ribbon of the candy box and her bracelet. I also applied Liquid Glass to the hearts on the box and Melinda's bracelet. To give Melinda's wings some sparkle, I applied extra fine glitter. Other embellishments are ribbon, half pearls and flowers.

Have an great day and thanks so much for stopping by!

Wow, this is definately one of my favs! The paper you used is so pretty. Your colouring is awesome--esp the jeans. Have a nice weekend. It will be over before we know it. P.S. are you going to the Novi stamp show? I planned on spending Fri night and classes but no one can go with me so I'll just go Sat. Would love to meet you if you're there on Sat.

Hugs,
