Hakuna Matata - Whimsy Stamps July 1st Mini Release

Hey All! It's the first of the month and that means it is time for another Whimsy Stamps Mini Release. The products hit the store shelves at midnight and they are ready for you to be viewed. Here are some awesome inspiration projects from the DT - scroll down to see my card.

When I saw this awesome lion family stamp 'mixed-media' jumped right into my head. So I went ahead and created a simple mixed-media card in an A2 size.

I first made the background using two earlier released stencils: Giraffe and Tiger Stripes. My background panel was cut from Strathmore mixed media cardstock and I used Memento Dye inks (Peanut Brittle, Potters Clay) and the NEW Whimsy blending brushes to stencil the BG. They are perfect for inking and the smooth and dense white bristles make for a soft and even ink application. I then stamped the image with Memento ink in Rich Cocoa onto the stenciled BG. 

I cut out a mask for the image, adhered it and sprinkled the BG with Rich Cocoa and Peanut Brittle Memento inks. After everything was dry I used the Giraffe stencil to add a bit texture with NUVO Moonstone Glimmer Paste. The sentiment is included with the rubberstamp and was stamped onto kraft cardstock with Memento in Rich Cocoa.

Wishing you all a wonderful Friday night and start into the long weekend!
