Whiff of Joy Challenge #48 - Heather's Sketch

This week's Whiff of Joy Challenge is a fabulous sketch by Heather. Her sketches are always so interesting and fun! I've been coloring a lot of images from new Fall Stamp Kit! I love 'em so much! So, you might have seen "Willow sitting with a loaf of bread" in my last post; she is one of my favorites.

Here's my card, again in keeping with the autumn season. This DP has more rose color, but I couldn't get very good lighting for the photo tonight.

All the edges are distressed then touched with walnut alcohol inks. When I do Heather's sketches I like to add lots of textures and colors.

Copics: Skin E000, E02; Hair E41, E53; Blouse YR0000, YR00; Apron YG03; Jeans YR21, YR24; Straw Y21, E33; Towel B000, B34.
Paper: K & Company
Flowers: Prima from Michaels
Brads: Autumn collection from Oriental Trading

And here is Heather's sketch! I just hope I did it justice.
Thanks for stopping by! Please feel free to leave your comments. It's nice to know you were here. Oh, and don't forget to hop over to the Whiff of Joy Challenge #48. You've just gotta see the design teams' projects! Be sure to add your own, too!
The WOJ Guest Designer Call is coming to an end in just a few hours. I think I'll add this one, too.

Oh my, Barb - tis a lovely card and don't you just love Fall Colours. Your colouring is superb and what a darling image. I love the distressed look - I must learn how to do that. Quite a sketch to follow but you most certainly did it justice!
