Whiff of Joy - A sketch by Heather - Guest DT call entry #2

Apologies ofr the lateness of this post, i have just got home from work and realised that the schedule did not work, so not sure what I did wrong there, anyway...............
Today over at Whiff of Joy Challenge we have a fabulous sketch for you to follow by our own Heather, it had lots of layers and is a bit more complex than some, but the results are amazing. I chose to matt each layer on mine as i like the outcome much better. I have used the lovely Willow stamo from last years Christmas collection, and have cropped her down with my nesties. I have coloured her with my Copics and have added some Diamond dust to her clothes and the lantern.

The papers I have used are 2 matching ones from craft creations and have matted them on some pale grey cardstock from my stash. The sentiment is a peel off and the red roses are some I have had hanging around for ages. Apologies for the bad photos but the light here yesterday was awful, rain all day and so they are not my best efforts, sorry !

Please try and find the time to visit the other DT blogs as their cards are beautiful as always and are well worth a visit. Also dont forget that Katharina still has the guest DT call on for Whiff of Joy until 18th Sept so you still have time to enter.
Right, must get on, too many things to do and too little tiem, but I guess you all know what that is like lol !
