Wee Freddie

Good morning!
Time for a little Whimsy inspiration here on my blog, and I decided to color up the cute stamp  "Freddie" from the November release. Such a cutie and I had so much fun coloring him!

After coloring with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils, I fussy cut the image. I left out some of the thin lines when fussy cutting, that's why the little heart is attached right at the end of the tail and not at the end of the thin line as seen on the actual image. 
The sentiment is from a Wee set also available at Whimsy Stamps (Flower Fairies). I thought it was perfect to use with Freddie too. It wasn't originally planned to fussy cut the image, but after choosing this pretty paper, that matched my coloring perfectly, I didn't want to cover it up, that's why I decided to cut it out. Unfortunately this paper is  no longer available, it was also from Whimsy. I finished off by adding some extra flowers to the top (which I cut out from this designer paper) and I added some hemp twine. The sentiment has been popped up with dimensionals.
