Musing Melinda

I hope everyone had lovely relaxing weekends! We did - wow the spring weather really decided to treat us over the weekend. It was so warm and sunny and fantastic to have the windows open after a bitter winter.

My new Whiff of Joy stamps arrived! Yay! I had been admiring all of the beautiful cards made with this lovely Musing Melinda for months so decided to finally just buy her! Isn't she sweet? But aren't these papers busy!! I love them, but I really have trouble using them well.

My card is 5 x 6 inches for a change. It is surprising what a difference this slight alteration in width makes to a card layout. I've been playing a little bit recently with sizes and using punches and border dies on the edges for some interest and steering a bit away from my standard 6x6 card. This time I decided to keep the edges clean as the paper is so detailed.

I have a couple of challenges to enter her into:

Whiff of Joy - Layers
A Pocket Full of Posies - Floral Fantasy
Saturday Challenge - Anything Goes
Sweet Stampin - Stitching

Ingredients for this card are:

Copic colours: E 0000, 000, 00, 11, 13,41, 43, 44, 51, 53, 55, 57, 59, V000, 91, 93, 95, G000, 00, 40, 85
Stamps: Musing Melinda - Whiff of Joy (Bizzy Becs)
Papers: Kioshi - Basic Grey
Embellishments: Kaisercraft Rhinstone strips, 1 " cream stain ribbon, flowers (Wild Orchid Crafts), Charm, Stickles Diamond
Other: Nestabilities Fleur De Lis Pendant and Oval, Cuttlebug, Sewing machine, Distress ink "Old Paper" for sponging

Enjoy the rest of your day!

Hugs

  12. Hi Kylie. I think you have done a wonderful job with the card and those papers are fabulous! It takes me a while to get used to new things too but it'll grow on you. This image is one of my faves and sadly I have not inked her up yet but you've inspired me to get a move on. Love how you've coloured her, especially her hair and those sparkly wings. Have a great day and hugs, Maria
