Whiff of Joy - Guest Designer Call

Every two months, on the 16th of the month, Katharina holds a guest designer call on behalf of Whiff of Joy. The call is open for 1 week from May 16th, and closes at 8.00pm on May 23rd.

To enter this GD call there are a few guidelines:
  • Create a card using at least 1 Whiff of Joy stamp
  • Color challenge!! Create a card using red, orange and 1 colour of your choice (neutrals like white and black can be used additionally)

Well - although I have used these colours before, very rarely have they been in this combination, and I realised that it needed something to separate them, so I have used black .

My image is from the the City Girl collection, called Dancing Willow.  I have used Copics for colouring.  The papers are Basic Grey Ambrosia, and seem to shout the colours required for this entry, with plain black card for the counts.  I have punched the edge of the striped paper and the black paper behind it with a Martha Stewart punch to give a zig-zag finish to the paper.  The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts, with punched leaves.

Thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate your comments.



  1. Lovely card Val. Your colouring of the image is great and the bps are gorgeous too. Using the black really sets each piece off perfectly.
