something girly for the weekend

I seem to be a day behind as this is the 2nd card I've made now that's missed the challenge by a day! Oh well, it gave me a fab layout to work with and I like the end result which is what is important. Fancied some softer colours after yesterday's bright one.
So this was using last week's Sketch Sat's layout which I love and another cutie from WoJ summer kit, which by the way will be available to buy individually online tomorrow (Sun 24th) here or probably later on tonight if you're up late enough in the UK. The grassy knoll she's sitting on is also WoJ from an earlier release. Love how you can mix n match them. I used some of the cute extras from the kit (the strawberries) to add to the inside too. Usually don't bother but I wanted to use up the scraps and it was a nice easy layout to continue on the inside too.

Also used some flowersoft for the first time (had it a while too!) on some of the flowers in the background as they looked like they should be fluffy to me (like the result but boy does that stuff expand and get everywhere!) and the strawberries have been given coat of glazed pen.

  • Stamps: Willow kneeling, the grassy background, strawberries and sentiments all from Whiff of Joy
  • Colouring: Willow and grass stamped using masking technique with Memento ink and coloured with Copics plus various Sakura pens for glitter and glaze
  • Papers: Papermania 'Regency' paper pack
  • Others: Circle nesties, fiskars apron lace border punch, EK parisian slim edger punch, prima flowers, pearl brads and paper roses

Have a good weekend everyone and for those in the UK, enjoy the slightly longer Bank Holiday weekend!
