Whiff of Joy challenge

It seems like ages since I entered this challenge and to be honest I think I had forgotten about my WoJ stamps stuck out in the garage in the cold....what a crime! I just love this Oakley image and had great fun colouring him and adding Glossy Accents to the water.
The papers are Basic Grey and the cardstock is SU. I have followed the sketch from the WoJ challenge this week. The stars are Grungeboard shapes, coloured with Promarkers. I punched the borders with a Martha Stewart punch. The sentiment has been left off just now as I couldn't decide which type of card this would be. I'll add it when I decide who to send it to.

Paper Play - stars

LOTV challenge


I was lucky enough to win this cute image as part of a blog candy so decided to ink it up and take part in this week's challenge over at LOTV. I have coloured the image with Promarkers and the papers are Papermania Honey & Hugs. I have blended Spun Sugar Distress Ink around all the edges.  I have stitched round all the panels, don't look too close as the stitching is a little wonky lol!
The image was then cut out using Nesties and matted onto some silver mirri card.
The sketch was from a Stampin 4 the weekend but their challenge wanted you to use the sketch and have a butterfly on your creation. I can't see a butterfly fitting this card somehow so can't enter their challenge :0(
