Whiff of Joy and Stamp Something challenges

What fabulous service from the Craft Barn! I ordered my copics on thursday and they arrived on friday! This was my first dabble with them, I have put off buying them for a long time but after seeing Rach's fabulous tutorial over on StampARTic I had to give them a try!
I nearly gave up in the first 5 minutes, they are so different from painting but I persevered and now I love them!
I used Katharina's fabulous sketch for the Whiff of Joy Challenge. I used the Whiff of Joy 'Melinda with muffiin basket' stamp designed by the fabulous Elisabeth Bell. The new summer kit by Elisabeth is going to be available to pre-order this monday, after seeing the tiny sneak peek I will definitely be ordering! This card also fits into the Stamp Something Challenge as it has lots of shapes on it. They are giving away a fabulous Sugar Nellie stamp as a prize this week!
Supplies: Stamps ~ Whiff of Joy 'Melinda with muffin basket', Script stamp of unknown make
DP ~ Basic Grey 'Marrakesh'
Tools ~ cuttlebug, nesties, Martha Stewart zigzag border punch, L-Em leaf punch
Embellishments ~ ribbon, Papermania adhesive stones, Panduro wooden heart, Provocraft memory rub-on sentiment
Colouring ~ Copic pens


Hope you are all having a fantastic Easter weekend and get to eat lots of chocolate!
I am off to finish off decorating this bedroom now, fingers crossed it will be finished today!
Thank you so much for your visit and kind words!

a brilliant card Deb, love what you did with your copics... way to go.. if this is your first time what are you going to be doing once you get used to them... wow!!!
it does take a while, as they are so different from painting. i almost gave up a couple of times when i first started using them. But you look like you have the hang of them already to me..
enjoy your Easter, hope you get you bedroom finished.
hugs rachxx
