Fri Sketcher with WoJ Melinda

Another great sketch over on Fri sketchers just never enough time to take part every week but I managed to this week, as it fitted perfectly with what I wanted to do with 'Musing Melinda' and the stack of presents from WoJ. The new releases are available NOW so I hope you managed to get the ones you wanted as I'm sure they're going to fly off the shelves.

  • Images: 'Musing Melinda', 'swirly clouds' and 'present tower' all WoJ stamps. I've stamped Melinda then masked her before stamping the cloud for her to sit on :). Left the mask on and sponged distress ink all over background as the white didn't fit in with the rest of the distressed colours of the card. 'Happy Birthday' is from a HOTP stamp/paper kit I got off QVC couple years ago.
  • Colouring: Copics then lots of twinkling H2O in her wings, hair, clothes and cloud. Distress ink sponged around edges of all the papers.
  • Papers: Cosmo Cricket 'little girls'.
  • Others: Fiskars 'apron lace' border punch, EK swirl flourish punch, decorative scissors used on edges of the sentiment (the off cuts have been stuck onto top/bottom of the strip running behind Melinda). Paper flower and gems to finish. Both the stack of presents and the central image are raised off the card with foam pads.

Have to say I really like all the 'hair dos' on this new batch of angels. Got a thing for colouring in curved bits on the hair to try and make it look all shiny and this one is fab to colour in - really love how it turned out even if I do say so myself ;)

Thanks for dropping by and for all you UK mothers out there, hope you've been pampered and treated today on Mother's day - funny how it's a different date for different countries don't you think?!! Have a good evening, what's left of it.
