Whiff of Joy Guest Designer Call

Well I didn't think I could be surprised by Canada Post but today certainly surprised me! I purchased some of the most gorgeous images ever from Whiff of Joy Stamps. I recieved an email last Monday stating my stamps had been shipped so I figured they'd never get here in time for the Guest Designer call.
I was wrong!! The stamps arrived today! I was shocked how fast they got here. Just 7 days!! Eeeeek I couldn't wait to get started. So if you can image I locked myself into my craft room and went to work. Here are my submissions for consideration to be a guest designer.

Here's a close up of the gown. I just painted over the dress with "Diamond Glaze" and sprinkled clear glitter over top. I wanted to try and make the colours muted and soft so I used water colour pencils to colour the images. My skills aren't perfect but I did manage to keep inside the lines. LOL
I honestly couldn't resist this image. Wow it's breath taking without colour. I was nervous to try and colour it because I wasn't sure I could do the illustration justice. I really wanted to make a card that was antique and distressed looking.

Here's a photo of all the cards together.
Whiff of Joy stamps used are: Confirmand Melinda and Willow holding baby
Spellbinders Blossom flowers
Duddlebug Beetle Black buttons
Designer Papers-BasicGrey, Cosmo Cricket, Daisy D's and CTMH
Fiskars Border Stamp
Diamond Glaze
Martha Stewart Glitter

Ohhh these are gorgeous! First off, YAY Canada Post! woohoo! Now on to your adorable cards - how pretty and soft, so vintage and classic. It's almost as if they have a patina on them from years ago. I love your embellishments, they are so perfect for your collection of cards. Good luck Melyssa, you'll do really well - I just know it!
