A Farewell Sketch and Sneak Peek

Happy Friday All!

Today we have another fabulous challenge for you on Stamp Something. Unfortunately, a new challenge also brings another goodbye to one of our current design team members. This week we are celebrating a year of creativity and bidding farewell to our super talented DT member Emily! In honor of Emily, we would like to see you create a card using one of the sketches Emily has designed for Stamp Something. We also have a new sketch posted up today in case you want to try something new. As long as you CASE or use one of Emily's sketches, you're good to go! Head on over to Stamp Something to see the fun creation by the design team as well as this week's blog candy!

My card today uses one of the sketches Emily designed in our early weeks as a challenge blog. Here's the sketch...

And here's my card...

Meet one of Whimsy's newest animals....Whimsy Monkey! He'll be available for purchase on Monday, June 1st. All next week the Whimsy Design Team will be sharing sneak peeks at the new Animals and Kids collection stamps. I thought this would be a perfect time to kick off the sneak peek week!

The moneky has been colored with Copics and his head has been popped up on foam tape to create some dimension. Then I cut out his legs and used the Nesties to frame him. Keeping his legs attached makes him seem more like he's actually swinging there!

The papers are some I got at the convention this past weekend, not sure who makes them. The cardstock is Chocolate Chip and Old Olive both from SU!. The buttons are also from the convention and coordinate with the papers. I also added some grosgrain ribbons and hemp twine. The sentiment is one I hand wrote and hung with a piece of hodgepodge hardware.

Thanks for stopping on by today, I hope you have a fabulous weekend. Happy Stamping! :)
