Whiff of Joy challenge #27 Heather Sketch

Whiff of Joy have a fabulous sketch by Heather this week - one htat I shall definitely be using again. I have used Melinda with muffin basket (inked up for the first time) and coloured her with copic. I am becoming happier with my use of Copics but still have a way to go!! I decided to ink up my own background paper using Basic Grey flourish stamps. The middle piece is printed from a download and distressed with inks. I've cut out and mounted Melinda on nestie labels 4. I'm not happy with the sentiment and will probably change this when I've made up my mind what to use. (Indecisive is my middle name at the moment)


Materials
BC - white linen : BP - self stamped : Image - WOJ Melinda with muffin basket : Copics : stamps - Basic Grey flourishes : Nesties labels 4 : Rest from stash
