Whimsy Stamps August Release - Listen To Your Art

Hello and Happy Thursday! It's Whimsy Release Day Today! - WooHoo!! Can you believe it's August already?! Just a few months and we are talking Christmas again...oh my I am SO not ready for this! Where did the time go? Ok, but for the moment lets focus on the here and now ;-)

There are awesome new goodies in the Whimsy Store available today. One of them is the Marble Background Stamp - Swoon! I am so in love with this stamp. But see for yourself:

I inked the background with distress inks (picked raspberry, peacock feathers, mustard seed, wilted violet) using dense cosmetic brushes. I then stamped the Marble Background over the inked BG using VersaMark ink and heat embossedd with white embossing powder. I love how bright the BG turned out.

I colored the images from the Artist Toolkit with Caran D'ache SupraColor watercolor pencils. I then fussy cut them and added them with foam tape on top of a vellum paper strip which I wrapped around the BG panel. I also stamped a sentiment from the Artist Toolkit stamp set onto the vellum strip using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink.

As a final touch I've added Glossy accents to the color dots on the palette and the paint from the tube.

Here is a list of all the goodies from the Whimsy store I used on my card:
