Whiff of joy challenge #18

This week on the Whiff of joy challenge blog there was a recipe challenge: 3 patterned papers, 2 flowers and 1 brad/button. Since I don't have any WOJ stamps I used one that my friend Coni sent me. The image was stamped on aquarell-paper so I didn't want to use my promarkers. Instead I used a technique I found somewhere while bloghopping. I used my tombow markers for this together with my waterbrush. It didn't really turn out the way her stuff did, but at least it was something different.

I didn't use the colored image until now and although I'm not quite sure what hot cocoa has to do with spring I thought the colorscheme was great. I'm really longing for spring so I wanted to use my wonderful "springy" papers. Right now winter is starting here, it's minus degrees and snow and ice on the ground. Brrr.

I found this pink button in my stash that matches the flowers on her pants. There are the same rounded flowers on the middle panel that I thought worked great together. The big bottom flower in the right corner was originally white, I used blue and red shimmer chalks to tone down the whiteness. The text is written on the computer and printed out. I made the seams with two shades of promarkers. I'm glad I managed to pull this card off, it was giving me a hard time in the beginning, lol. Hope you like it!
