Whiff of Joy Challenge #93 -- No Red or Green!

Whiff of Joy Challenge #93 is calling for no red or green.  I can do that!  Actually, I pulled out an image of Willow that I colored last year.  I still love the images, even though I definitely feel my coloring skills have improved somewhat during the year.  It's just hard to waste a colored piece.

There are actually two Whiff of Joy images here: Willow is sitting on a wooden bench which I masked in to make one image.  Both are colored with Copics.  There is just a touch of green and red in the holly on Willow's hat and muff, but I think I can slip that in.  The blue paper is a double-sided card stock from my Christmas stash.  I chose to keep the background and embellies more on the white side so the MS picket fence punch was added.  If you look closely there is sheer ribbon with little snowflakes laid just below the fence.  Snowflakes from Marcella by K&Co (actually they are flowers for wedding cards, but I like the glittery look for winter) and MS snowflake punch with clear rhinestones.  The metal tag says "believe" and who doesn't during this time of year?  It's just so hard not to believe in peace and goodness!

Here's a close-up of Willow and the bench.  This is still one of my favorite Willow images!

If you haven't been shopping at Whiff of Joy lately, you will be AMAZED at all the scrumptious new images, dies, papers and embellies.  Be sure to stop by!  Speaking of stopping by, thank you for your visit here!
