WoJ Summer Kit - 'sweet wishes'

Hello! I know I said I wouldn't be posting till tomorrow but because Katharina has been super efficient, lots of people have already started receiving their WoJ Summer Kits. Which means we've been given the o.k to start showing them - yeah! I can't tell you how much I love this set, love every single item on it.

So if you've ordered and haven't got it yet and don't want to spoil the surprise look away now! Otherwise, just look at this beauty! Although be warned, I used some really zingy bright papers (to help make up for this dull, wet windy & dreary weather here. It's currently raining, . again!)

I used papers from DCWV's 'Citrus stack' which have some gorgeous glitterey papers in it (if you click on photo might be able to see the glitter better) and I thought the colours were very apt for all the fruity images you get on the clothes in this kit. Even though I usually love my more muted tones I do love a burst of colour every now and again! The glitter paper means I can enter this into this week's 'Secret Crafter' challenge :)

Don't you just love that tree? Not sure if it's supposed to be an orange or apple tree but I think you could make it into either. I just love it and think it would look great on it's own but I thought this Melinda here looked like she was enjoying the smell from it so stamped them together before I carefully cut out with a 'Labels 3' nesties die. Here's a close up. I used my Copics plus some twinkling h2o's for added shimmer.

For those eagle eyed amongst you, the extra leaf falling down is not part of the original image but I managed to get a tiny black mark on my work right at the end and there was no way I was throwing it away so stamped out leaf from the tree, cut it out and stuck it over the mark ;)

  • Images: Melinda, tree and sentiment all from WoJ summer kit but if you didn't order they will be available individually soon (will let you know when I know)
  • Papers: DCWV 'Citrus stack'
  • Colouring: Copics with some twinkling H2os
  • Others: 'Labels 3' nestie, EK success parisian edger punch, flourish punch, SU word window punch, rafia ribbon and brad.

Wow, in the space of typing this it has gone from light rain to bucketing it down now! Looks like day for staying in and stamping :)

Have a lovely Sunday and I'll be back with more previews all this week. You can also check out the rest of the DT's amazing work either in the WoJ gallery here or blog links are over on the right.

Oh this just jumped right out at me from my sidebar Fran! I LOVE the zingy colours and the fruity papers - very fresh indeed.

We had a double first communion/christeneing day today and I have to say were VERY lucky with the weather. It poured when we were in church then the sun shone all afternoon until it was time to round it up then it rained again! Am jiggered now though.
