Whiff of Joy challenge - Pink and Brown

This week at the Whiff of Joy challenge we have a colour combination for and this combination, it always looks so rich I think.

I used the lovely Melinda with Muffin basket stamp, it is so gorgeous and I love colouring it. It was the first stamp I bought and haven't used it for a while since I got the summer kit! I've coloured her with copics and added stickles to the wings. The edges of the image have been distressed with tattered rose distress ink and a I have stamped a Stempelglede grunge stamp in brushed cordoruy around the edge too.

I finally managed to get hold of some glimmer mist! I've wanted some for ages and I'm so impressed, it really makes the flowers look gorgeous! Here I have layered a Prima paper flower, a Prima hydrangea and a foam rose.

I've used my other new toy again, my MS doiley lace punch, on one of the papers and I've added another hydrangea and a gorgeous butterfly charm.

Hope you can join us this week and look forward to seeing all your creations! Please pop and have a look at the rest of the DT's cards, they're stunning! x
