Whiff Of Joy Challenge


This weeks WOJ Challenge is a fantastic sketch by Donalda. I'm not even sure if I've taken part in this challenge before, dont know why, I own enough WOJ Stamps. This is one of their latest releases. She's been coloured with Distress ReInkers apart from the Wings and Hairband. I got my SU Classic Ink Pads yesterday and had to try them out so incorporated them into this card to. The papers are BG "Porcelain". All embellishments are K & Co. Brown Bazzill cardstock and papers edged with Rich Cocoa Memento Ink pad.

Hope you like my card and if you haven't tried watercolouring with ReInkers, then you should!!!
