Whiff of Joy 14 - Lizzie

Happy Sunday! Today I waned to share a card that I made last night using this wonderful image from Whiff of Joy. This is Lizzie with Muff - isn't she GORGEOUS?? Over on the Whiff of Joy Challenge Blog they posted a contest to make a card using the colors purple and green (and a WoJ image of course!).

To create this card I stamed Lizzie on white cardstock using Memento ink. I colored her in with Copics in varying shades of green and purple, and hand-drew the little shadow under her feet. I left what I thought should be the "fuzzy" parts of her outfit uncolored, and when I was all done I added some White Flock to those areas using a Quickie Glue pen.

I ran the darker plum piece through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder and then mounted it on a scalloped long rectangle Nestability I had already cut (the same with the Lizzie image). That background panel is on dimensionals, and Lizzie is on double dimensionals. Added some beads to a stick pin from my Pretties Kit (Stampin' Up!) and put it through the ribbon as a final touch.

I have to tell you, I had a really fun time coloring this image. She is just fabulous, and perfect for coloring. Next time I may try pencils & OMS for coloring just to see how that turns out. Let me just say, if you don't have any Whiff of Joy stamps yet...you need some!

Thanks for stopping by - I hope everyone has a wonderful day!
