Lime Tart DT - Sitting Summer Willow (Whiff of Joy)

Good morning! Today is my first post for Lime Tart on the Zest Blog.

For my first DT project I have been very lucky to be able to use a Whiff of Joy stamp "Sitting Summer Willow". She is so beautiful! Willow has been coloured using Copic Sketch markers.



The papers are "Curio" by Basic Grey and are a part of this month's A la Tarte. The gorgeous text sheet is actually a canvas 12 x 12 sheet. All of the edges of the cardstock and papers have been sponged with Walnut Stain distress ink and then stitched together. I used a metal flower die and my Cuttlebug to cut the flowers from the canvas sheet as well and then inked the edges.



Willow is coloured using:

Skin: E 000, 00, 11, 13
Hair: E 50, 31, 33, YR 31
Clothes: E 0000, 41, 42, 43, R 000, 00, 11, 12, YG 63, 91

Some challenge for this card are:
The Shabby Tea Room - use 11 elements (cardstock, DP, canvas, ribbon, lace, brads,dies, punches, copics, stitching, sponging)
The Crazy Challenge - All things New (the stamp, the DT :), using canvas on cards, the butterfly punch)
Paper Sundaes - Something New ((the stamp, the DT :), using canvas on cards, the butterfly punch)
