Whimsy New Artist Blog Hop - Kenny K!!!

 
Hello everyone and welcome to another Whimsy Release Blog Hop! As I mentioned yesterday I have some big news to share with you today, here it comes......

Whimsy Stamps have some fab news to share with you today - we have a new rubber artist joining our team.... KENNY KIERNAN! Woohoo...can you believe this? Kenny K for Whimsy :-)))

As many of you will know, Kenny K is currently a digital stamp artist (amongst many other things) and although Whimsy will not be carrying any Kenny K digis, we are making some of Kenny's existing designs into rubber and then hopefully adding some new designs along the line that will be exclusive to the Whimsy rubber collection!

So to celebrate this wonderful new venture, the Whimsy Stamps DT plus our fab special Whimsy guests Elaine Hughes, Deb, and Janna, are holding a BLOG HOP to showcase the EIGHT images that are being made into rubber:

All That
Devilish Donna
Download Diva
Kitty Katastrophe
Luscious Linda
Movie Star
Rock Chick
Troublemaker

Remember that Whimsy Stamps will be carrying the rubber versions of these stamps only. Kenny K will continue to offer the digital versions in his store. The rubber stamps are available to PRE-ORDER from today from the Whimsy store, and will start shipping during the week of the 27th!

Our super-talented Ann (Raindrop Echo Designs) has designed some wonderful digital sentiments that work fabulously with these images - thank you Ann! These are also being released today!

If you would like to participate in the hop and you didn't arrive here from Janna's blog, please CLICK HERE to return to the beginning of the hop at Simonne's blog.

The hop starts today (Thursday December 16th at noon EST) and ends on Thursday December 23rd at noon EST.

For this hop we have 4 different prize draws! The grand prize of ALL 8 of the new release rubber stamps is being hosted by Denise at the very end of the hop, but there are also 3 mini candy stops throughout the hop! I'm not going to tell you where they are, so you'll just have to keep on hopping to find them! *wink* [Winners will be announced on December 23rd after the hop ends - what a wonderful Christmas present for those lucky hoppers!]

For my blog hop creation I used the cute Download Diva. I colored her with Distress Ink Refills. The watercolor paper I used is from Lanaquarelle 140 lbs hot press. The DP is  from My Minds Eye "Oh LA LA" collection. The sentiment is from Ann's newly designed 'Fast Lane' sentiments which coordinate perfectly with the Kenny K images! I also pulled out my sewing machine and stitched around the edges.


Here's a close up of the image and the Distress colors I used are as follows:
Hair: Scattered Straw, Antique Linen, Walnut Stain and for adding the sparkle to her hair I used twinkling H2O's Buttercup. Skin: Tattered Rose & Tea Dye. Shirt pink: Spun Sugar & Worn Lipstick, shirt red: Fired Brick. Jeans: Faded Jeans & Stormy Sky. Socks: Spun Sugar & Worn Lipstick. Shoes: Peeled Paint & Shabby Shutters, for the glitter on the shoes I used Stickles Star Dust. The glitz on her belt and MP3 player was added using a Sakura Star Dust Pen.


 I also decorated the inside.


So now it's time for you to continue the hop by hopping on over to Vicki's blog where I know she has something amazing to show you!

Finally, here is a complete blog hop list in hopping order:


Thank you so much for hopping with us today and I hope you enjoy this exciting new release!

Hugs,
