Happy Tuesday and thanks for visiting!
Today is day 2 of the Whimsy Stamps January Rubber Stamp and Die release sneak peek! And of course we are having another fabulous prize giveaway hidden in one of the participating designer's blogs, so be sure to leave a comment on each blog (links below) for a chance to win!
Today we are showing you creations made by stamp designs from Mi Ran and Krista Heij-Barber.
And here is what I made using the Mi Ran cutie - Cotton Candy - she will be in the shop tomorrow, January 14th.
She's been stamped onto copic blending card, then colored with copics and fussy cut. I cut out a hill using Whimsy's stitched border die set, and adhered it onto my blue background. Cotton Candy was then adhered to that. The sentiment cirlce is from an old set by Whimsy - Spring Letter Seals.
The whole card design was actually inspired by a marker mistake I made, after fussy cutting her, when I inked the edges of the cut image with a black marker. My only two choices were, recoloring and re-fussy cutting, or trying to cover it up. Since it would have taken me a long time to re-do everything (and this was already my second time coloring the image), I decided trying to cover it up. These tiny butterflies came to mind, and then I remembered the old Whimsy stamp set - Spring Letter Seals, and everything worked out perfectly. Love how the card turned out! I think the image is perfect for a spring butterfly themed card.
I finished it off by adding a few more butterflies and some twine.
