Happy New Year 2020! - Whimsy January Release



Hello folks! Wishing you all a very happy and healthy 2020! Let's kick start the new year with our first new Whimsy Stamps release for 2020. This release is AHH-MA-ZING! But see for yourself. HERE in the store you'll find all the new goodies. 

I am showcasing a new flower set today illustrated by Crissy Armstrong and it's part of the Whimsy Stamps Crissy Armstrong collection. They are called Layered Peruvian Lilies. This set is very versatile. You can layer the flowers, stamp them with different colored inks to receive beautiful images quickly without coloring. Or you can use just the outline images of the flowers and color them with your favorite medium. I used the latter method.

Because I wanted a bucnh of flowers coming out of one corner of my card I used the masking technique to create this cluster of  Peruvian Lilies. I used only the outline stamps from the flower blossoms and leaves and stamped them on a A2 size watercolor panel with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink. I colored using my Altenew watercolor pan set.


I also didn't want my card to be too simple and flat so I decided to cut out the image with the largest die of the NEW Wonky Stitched Rectangles die set.  To give it a 3D effect I used the second largest die of the Wonky Stitched Rectangles die set and cut out another rectangle from my image. I adhered the image on a A2 size card using foam tape. This method doesn't take away the focus from my image but it still is not just a flat one layer card. A few sequins and a small simple Happy Birthday sentiment (that is included with the Layered Peruvian Lilies set) finish off my card.
