Whiff of Joy - A sketch by Rach

Happy wednesday morning to you, I hope the weather is being kind ? It is time for another Whiff of Joy Challenge and today we have a wonderful sketch by the awesome Rach for you, and boy is it a good one to follow, I loved it and will use it again for sure. I have used the new bird stamp from the Christmas collection, it is just so sweet and perfect for a card to a partner. I have coloured the image with my copics and have added some diamond dust to the snow on the branch and a small amount on the ends of some of the pines, I hope you can see it.

I chose BG Wassail paper for this one and have used both sides of it, the red paper is Imaginesce Go for Baroque, I have distressed the edges of all of the papers with Distress Inks - peeled paint and Tea Dye. In my box of flowers I found these lovely deep red silk ones, they have a tiny feather in them and a couple of pearls, I really thought they set it all off, and to make it even better I had some dried greenery which I added to the edges, I thought it made it look as if part of the tree was hanging around the little love birds.

The sentiment is one I had left in a pack of Craft Bitz and I have just matted it on the same card as the other layers and 3d'd it for a bit more dimension. Hope you have enjoyed your little browse at my card today and I look forward to seeing what you have come up with when I visit your blogs during the week.

Take care crafty gals,
