Whimsy Stamps December Release - Hey Ostrich

These fun ostriches from Whimsy's NEW Hey Ostrich set (newest release) are my latest watercolor victims...haha. There is a list of colors used further below. Their faces are just too funny makes me smile every time I look at them. I combined them with the NEW Slimline Swiss Dots die . I'm in love with that die. I knew these two new products would make an awesome combination.  I went for gray and pink as my main colors. To add some interest to the plain gray cardstock I added sprinkles of white (Dr. Ph.
