WoJ preview 2: 'You are amazing'

Here's another preview of the 'City Girl' collection. When I saw these 2 images for the very first time, I knew straight away that I wanted to use them together. Oakley just looks like he's looking at Willow with such love and I'm not surprised . . 'what a babe' (hubby's words!) Willow is, all decked out in her finest.

So in keeping with this romantic theme I've gone for a very soft colour palette and watercoloured them with distress inks and twinkling H2Os. (note to self - use other watercolour paper - this one causes too much 'bleeding' and poor Oakley's hair is a mess!) 

Talking of distress inks and romance, have you seen the 12 new shades of distress inks?!  they look yummy and a much 'needed' addition . . Well, hubby's got them for me for valentines - how lucky am I?!  I think he's a keeper ;).  Anyway, back to my card - I've just stamped the 2 images next to each other and then I've doodled a wall, carpet and door around them so it looks like they are just getting ready to go out!  The sentiment is also a WoJ stamp.  Here's a close up of the cute couple


  • Stamps:  Willow & Oakley are from 'City Girl' release from WoJ available 4th Feb, Sentiment also WoJ

  • Colouring: stamped with Versafine ink onto watercolour paper and watercoloured with distress inks & twinkling H2Os for a bit of shimmer - click on photo for close up to see better

  • Paper: DCWV 'la creme' matstack

  • Tools: distresser tool for edges of image, tracing wheel for the faux stitching holes, MS heart & border punches, scallop circle punch

  • Others: black gems and waterproof black fineliner pen for doodling the background scene

    Well, thanks for stopping by and have a lovely evening.
