Whiff of Joy Guest Designer Call

As many of you will know, Katharina is about to launch her new stamp design company - Whiff of Joy. Firstly, the name is brilliant! Secondly, she has so many fantastic designers on board, the stamps are utterly gorgeous. I am going to be a definate customer!

Being the generous person that she is, Katharina is going to take a Guest Designer onto the design team every 2 months. In order to decide on the first candidate, she has produced one of her famous sketches. Here is my take on her design.......

This card was made with Laura Ashley contemporary papers and a Sarah Kay image from an online colouring page - thanks for the tip off Beth! The image is coloured with watercolour pencils and mounted onto the card with 3D pads for a little bit of dimension. I finished the card with a chipboard butterfly and a Stamps Away sentiment which is tied to the card with an eyelet and some ribbon.
I really enjoyed making this card as I haven't had as much crafting time as I would have liked in the last couple of weeks and I've missed it terribly! It also gave me a really good excuse to play with my new Laura Ashley goodies (don't you just love freebie gifts from magazine subscriptions?!). I do love the papers I have to say, so classy. The only problem is, I don't really have that many stamps that 'compliment' this style. I think I can feel a shopping spree coming on.....!

P.S. Apologies for the wonky picture, I took it in a hurry before I ran out of the door to work this morning. I'll try and get a better one tonight!
