Whiff of Joy Guest Designer Call!!

Here's a very exciting opportunity! Whiff of Joy is having a Guest Designer call! As an avid fan of these remarkable stamps it would be such a thrill to be part of the incredible team that turns the images into works of art.

Ever since I received the new fall kit I have been coloring like crazy. So, rather than try to choose just one image for a card, I chose three. Thus, three cards. I have used all the images so far and just can't pick a favorite!

Here is the first card featuring "Willow with Grapes" and the "Fall Corner" (I guess that makes four images). I love the vintage harvest feel of this stamp and like to draw color from the grapes.

Copics: Skin E000; Hair E31, E33; Dress G00; Apron E33; Grapes and Leaves BV08, R59, B32, YG25, YG67
Papers: Vintage prints from stash
Flowers: Primas with ivory roses.
Embellies: Gold self-stick pearls and pewter sentiment.

The second card features "Willow Seated with Bread". I found the background paper with such full rich autumn colors and everything just came together.

Copics: Skin E000, Hair E77, YR24; Blouse E07; Apron YR24; Pants YG95; Linen B0000; Bread - a variety till I found what worked!
Flower and leaf: from a fall bunch from Michaels, but I added the metal flower center for sparkle.
Papers from my autumn stash
Sentiment is embossed in white

Card #3 is for a little boy I know who is having a birthday. The stamp is "Sitting Farmer Oakley" who is so cute! Oakley is sitting on an actual pocket. Quite some time ago I bought a bunch of these pockets on sale, knowing they would come in handy some day. Well, that day has finally arrived. The pocket has a velcro seal at the top so little gifts can be safely hidden inside. I inserted a little card here.

Copics: Skin E000, E02; Hair E08; Hat E37, E41, YR24; Shirt B99, B45; Overalls E07, E11, E33
Papers: 7 Gypsies

So, these are my entries for the Guest Designer Call. I hope they stand up to the fantastic entries already submitted. If you know me, you know I love Whiff of Joy and I would be so honored to be in the company of such creative people. So, please wish me luck!!

Love all three of them Barb. Think I like Oakley best, although I love the fall colours of the middle card and the beautiful Willow with grapes of the first. Your details on all of them are truly stunning.

Barb, as always, all 3 cards are beautiful. Your colouring is something else and background papers have helped bring out the richness of those beautiful colours. I wish you all the luck in the world, my friend.
