Happy Feet - Whimsy New Release

Happy Friday Friends! It's another cute release at Whimsy today and here is what I came up with using the NEW Happy Feet clear stamp set.

To create the frame and the scene I used the Slimline Scenic Countryside die set. The background was was inked with distress oxide inks  and sprinkled with white acrylic paint and liquid pixie dust for snow effect. The penguins were colored with radiant liquid watercolors.


Thank you for visiting.
Have a great weekend and stay safe!

Wonkey Donkey - Older Than Dirt

Hi Friends! Here is another card using a stamp set from the newest Whimsy release, called Wonky Donkey by Dustin Pike. To provide the perfect setting for the card I had in mind I used the Slimline Fancy Frame die set and the Comic Speech Bubble die set to showcase the Wonky Donkeys.

So, I had a fun video chat recently with my DT sisters Alanna and Faye and we decided to have some fun with these cute donkeys. We all used different coloring mediums to color. It is so much fun to see how different they all turned out and how you can change them up only by using a different coloring medium. Please visit my friends blogs to see their amazing creations.

You can see Alanna's card  done with Copics HERE and Faye's card done with pencils HERE. 

As for me I used watercolors. I used Dr. Ph. Martin's Radiant Concentrated Watercolors on Bristol smooth cardstock and a waterbrush. I love these liquid watercolors, they are so easy and convenient to use and their bright and brilliant colors are amazing.

Here is a list of colors used:

Lemon Yellow
Cherry Red
Moss Rose
Juniper Green
Grass Green
