My favourite WOJ stamp

Sometimes challenges ask you to use your favourite stamp. I could never choose just one stamp as a favourite but if I had to choose a top ten this Whiff of Joy stamp would definitely be in there. I don't use her often enough as colouring the folds is a challenge. I looked back on my blog to earlier tries and I have to tell you that whilst this is in no way perfect it is so much better than my first attempts which are quite awful. Maybe one day I will colour perfectly. I the meantime I will keep on practicing and I think you may see her again before Christmas.

She has been coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I also used a Sakura Goldstar pen and lots of glitter for snow. Papers are from The Snowman pack. The gorgeous ribbon and lace are from Crafty Ribbons, sentment is from LOTV, bird and cage are MB dies.
