Whimsy Stamps February 2013 Rubber Stamp & Die Release

 
Welcome to the Whimsy Stamps February 2013 rubber stamp and die release!
Today, Whimsy Stamps is releasing 22 fantastic new Rubber Stamps & Stamp Sets, 5 wonderful new Whimsy Shapeology Dies, 2 fabulous new Shape EZ by TLC templates, and 2 beautiful Whimsy Designer Paper 6x6 packs. These new goodies are available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favorites. 

Here is my creation for today's release with the super adorable 'Shelley' designed by Sylvia Zet

I colored Shelley and her little turtle friend with my Copics as usual. Please find the Copic colors I used further down in the posting. The water lily was created using the new Whimsy Shapeology dies 'Layered Flowers' which is a set of 4 dies. The leaf in the upper right corner and the leave swirls are Whimsy dies as well (Leaf Trio & Vines die set). Sentiment is from the 'Lovely Spring Sliders 2' and cut out with the matching Slider 2 die. DP is from Prima's 'Sweet Fairy' collection.


Copic colors used:
Hair: E18 - E15, YR20 - YR21
Skin: E11 - E00 - E000 - E0000 - R00 - R20
Teal: BG0000 - BG000 - BG01 - BG02 - BG53 - BG57
Green: YG17 - YG13 - YG11
Yellow: Y00 - Y02 - Y000
Purple: V09 - V17 - V15 - V12 - V01 - V0000
Pink: R89 - R85 - R81- RV00
Rock: E40 - E41 - E42 - E43
Blue: B0000 - B000


 Here's a close-up on the water lily


To create the waves I used a Memory Box die (Big Splash Border) and embellished with rhinestones & swirls.


The inside is decorated to match the outside. Again I used the 'Layered Flowers' die and the leaf from the Leaf Trio. I just kept them more flat. The rings that shall resemble water bubbles were cut out with another Memory Box die, 'Loopy Rings'. The rhinestone border was a gift from my sweet friend Claudia.


 This card is for sale and will be available in my Etsy store later today.
This card has been sold. Thanks so much!
