Whiff of Joy Guest DT Call

>> Thursday, 2 July 2009

Katherina is looking for 15 people to become Guest DT members for a blog hop to celebrate WOJ’s first birthday.  To enter you need to make a card following the sketch on her blog. 

This is an unusual shape but I really like how its turned out.  I love this WOJ image, she is my all time favourite (so far!) and I’ve coloured her with distress inks.  I’ve layered the butterflies using card and vellum.  I wanted to spritz them with glimmer mist but it made the vellum go all curly so I started again and added some sparkle using a glitter pen.

WOJ3 

 

I’ve tried to show the dimension of the butterflies by taking a photo from a different angle.

 

 

 

 

My peel off markers came in handy again to colour the pearls and brad.

Now don’t fall off your chair but I’ve decorated the inside too!  I needed to really because of the shape of the front.  I kept it simple and added another butterfly.WOJ2
