Whimsy Stamps June Release - Day 3

Here I am today with my last card for the Whmsy June Release Celebrations. Deb Davis has created some fun clear sets again for this release. One of them - If I Only Had a Brain - I am showcasing on my card today. I made a little fun zombie birthday card :-) I used the large polka dot from the Polka Dot Fun set, stamped the moon with VersaMark ink and clear embossed it. I then sponged the background with Distress inks (tumbled glass, chipped sapphire, dusty concord, black soot). I sprinkled some white color mixed with some Wink of Stella silver glitter over the background. I stamped the grass (from the Friendly Flower set), the zombi image from the If I Only Had a Brain set and part of the sentiment with black ink. The word Zombody was stamped with VersaMark and embossed with silver embossing powder. As a final step I added mini star sequins. Thanks for visiting and I hope you like the new release! Hugs,

Whimsy Stamps June Release - Day2

Welcome to Day 2 of the Whimsy Stamps June Relase.  I have two cards to share with you again today. My first card features a new rubber stamp by Elisabeth Bell - Tommy and Toby . I colored again with Tombow Dual Brush pens. This time I used them more like I would use my Copics and not so much as watercolor pens. To blend I used the Tombow blender pen and only at the end I went over it with a damp brush to blend even more. I like the fact that you can blend these water based pens with each other as well as with the blender pen. As for the paper I used a Mixed Media Paper pad from Strathmore. I wanted a really smooth surface (no watercolor pad) for this technique. The mixed media is ideal because it can be used also with watercolors...if it doesn't get too wet. Damp is fine though. The paw die is also from the new release from the Paws to Remember die set. My second card is CAS style (once again) and I used the NEW Paws to Remember clear set by Deb
