Fri Sketcher #22: 'Raining love & birthday wishes'

One more post today for you. Here's another Whiff of Joy stamp from the new release this week. This time it's Willow in the rain. Don't you just love the sentiment - perfect for some of my other 'rainy' stamps too.


  • Images: 'Willow with Umbrella' and sentiment (from set of 6) Whiff of Joy stamps
  • Colouring: Prisma pencils with a little blending with Sansodor. added shimmer with pearlescent watercolour paint and a little highlight with white gel pen
  • Papers: DCWV baby boy nursery pad distressed edges with chalk ink.
  • Others: rectangle nesties, ribbon, flowers, metal spacers, charms & brads from stash
I've used the sketch over on Friday sketchers and tried something a little different by colouring onto coloured cardstock with my prismas which I wanted to try after seeing it whilst blurfing (sorry can't remember where now, but I loved the effect).

I'm fairly happy with how my image turned out but the card as a whole didn't end up how I imagined it, so I'm not loving it at the moment but hope it will grow on me, I'm sure you know what I mean! Think I should have used darker DP rather than that white based one. Will try that for my next one.
