Whiff of Joy Challenge 14 & Sketch 1

The Whiff of Joy Challenge 14 is a colour challenge and you have to use the colours purple and green. Fabby colour combo as I love using the colour purple!!! I have used a stamped image of Willow with Umbrella and I have coloured her using distress inks. I managed to get my paper trimmer sorted out and I have used the victorian blade to cut the card and paper for the middle section and the inside (although it doesn't show up too well!).
I have used my stylized flowers embossing folder to emboss some metalic silver card and I just love the effect. I have also used the same card with a die to cut the stars, the two smaller ones are on the front and the two larger ones inside.
Finally, I decided to have a bit of a play around in photoshop and I made this sketch to base my card on. Please feel free to use it if you wish.
Card/Paper: Cream, green and metallic silver card, DCWV pocket full of posies paper
Stamp: WOJ - Willow with Umbrella stamped image
Colouring: Distress inks - dusty concord, tattered rose, weathered wood, broken china and vintage photo. Green whispers pen.
Embossing: Stylized flowers embossing folder
Embellishments: Jewels
Tools: Cuttlebug, victorian blade, sponge, water brush, star cutting die
