Whiff of Joy Challenge DT Card

Hi there everyone, I'm back again today with my DT card for the Whiff of Joy Challenge blog where we have a brand new challenge for you. This week it's a nice easy one for you and the theme is 'Paper Piecing'.

The gorgeous image that I've used is 'Willow Holding Baby' and I've coloured her using my ProMarker and AquaMarker pens. The areas where I've done some paper piecing is Willows dress and the baby's shawl. To add some shadows to the creases, I've used my promarker pens in colours to match the papers.
The DP is Prima and I've inked the edges using Brushed Corduroy.

The flowers I made myself and if you're interested I shall be doing a tutorial over at the Whiff of Joy Inspirations blog on one of these fabric flowers on Friday, so keep your eyes peeled.

The sentiment I created using Adobe Illustrator and if you would like to have this then please go to my sentiments freebie page where there's a link.

Challenges I'm entering this card into are:-

Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Make your own embellishments (my flowers are handmade)

I hope that you enjoy the rest of the week and thanks for stopping by today.
