Whiff Of Joy

Hi everyone, well here is my entry for this fortnights challenge over at WOJ where you had to use the colours, brown, yellow and 1 other, I decided to use blue.

While working on this card it reminded me of Autumn and how the colours change to make you feel warm and cosy.

I've used distress inks and copic pens on this card as well as Martha Stewart punches and some ribbon.

I hope you enjoy my card, and comments are much appreciated.

Come back tomorrow when I might have another card to share with you all.

Hugs and kisses, Karen

i'm back ........

No I didn't fall of the planet, no I haven't given up crafting!!!

What have I been doing? well mainly working none stop and I haven't had time to craft. When I come home I'm that tired I just want to sit down and sleep.

So as May is only around the corner I am trying to get myself back into the swing of things and organise the business alot better.

So please bare with me, hopefully I will be back to normal (whatever that is?) soon.

WOJ weekly challenge

Hi everyone, well I hope you are all having a fantastic time in the snow!? No I didn't think it. It's quite depressing as its stayed for so long now.
Anyway, here is my first entry for the WOJ Challenge in 2010. This week it was a colour scheme where you had to use Aqua and Red.

Apologies for poor picture, there is no daylight worth talking about and the lights in here just wouldn't be the best.
I used my new Wee & Christmas tree stamp which I bought in the WOJ sales just before the New Year and coloured the tree in using H20's and Wee with my copics. I've been trying to invest in more copics but at the minute its hard to justify spending £6.99 on one pen, especially when I'm looking for at least 10.
I have used diamond glaze and then glittered some of the circles in the papers just to add a little frost onto the card. Can't get out of the "Christmas" theme yet, but I am working on it!!

This is a close up of Wee and his tree, I think I have the shadows very good in this image, must be getting better.
