Two posts in one day!

My olde manne is out tonight, so I've been ensconsed in my room, creating!

I love this Whiff of Joy image of Willow adjusting her shoe. She is so graceful and elegant, and I love her ruffled sleeves!

I went back to my Promarkers, which are easier to use than Speccies because I know twhich colours work together! The swirls are also Whiff of Joy, stamped in Worn Lipstick DI, and I also dragged the edges around the ink pad to emphasise them. The pink mat is a Nestie and is also edged with Worn Lipstick. I've stickled her belt and jewellery, and also round the edge of the image, and along the cross-shape.

Papers are MME, from a pad that was a magazine freebie last year (loved these so much I bought a second copy!) I also used the Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch. The pearls are from stash.

I'm entering this into the current Sketch Saturday Challenge it's a really nice sketch, very simple.

I'm also entering the Whiff of Joy Challenge where the theme is 'Pink and Pearls.'

Ok, time to tidy and make a cuppa before Himself gets home!

Thanks for looking!

luv, Mags x

Promarkers: Tan, Burnt Sienna, Henna; Blush, Dusky Pink, Pastel Pink; Cocktail Pink, Dusky Rose.
