Live Your Dreams

Hi Everyone and Happy Tuesday! For the April issue of  Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Magazine I made some cards featuring Moma's Designs beautiful flower images. This card is one of them. The stamp set is called  Summertime Blooms and available in the Whimsy store. The sentiment is also from the Summertime Blooms set and the DP I've used is from Magnolia. I kept the card pretty simple to show off the image. Just a few brads, some ribbon and a single flower. I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black onto 'X-press it'  paper and colored the image using the following Copic markers R39-29-24-22-20-00, G46-43-40, N7-6-3, T2 and Prisma pencils non-photo-blue and dark brown. If you like Whimsy stamps and want to share your Whimsy creations, get some inspirations & tips and like to chat with other Whimsy enthusiasts come and join our NEW Facebook group: Whimsy Stamps & Inspiration !

Happy Mail

Happy Hump-Day Everyone! Mid-week already and I still have thousands of things to do this week. Wish my days had 36 hours instead of 24 at the moment. Also still need to put some new flowers in my pots around the house. The spring flowers are gone and it's time to plant some nice colorful summer flowers.  Otherwise it looks so sad with the empty pots ;). But nevertheless I want to take the time and share a creation with you today! One that I made a few weeks ago and that was published in the newest Whimsy Inspirations Magainze . The card I made shows one of the beautiful flower images from Whimsy's Moma's Collection, designed by Monika Martinson and it's called Spring Tulips : This time I colored the tulips using my Distress Inks (pads & refills, see all colors I used further down). BTW tulips are one of my favorite flowers :) Papers I used are from MME and the sentiment is from Whimsy's Sentiment Collection: Everyday Button
