Truly and Whimsy

Happy Wednesday All!

Another week already half over! It rained here yesterday and so I got some stamping done, but today is suppose to be sunny again. Here's hoping, although the sun does seem to put a damper on my mojo!

Today, Whimsy Stamps is sponsoring the challenge at Truly Scrumptious and they have a fun sketch to use. There is also a little something extra to go with the sketch, they want to see you use beads on your project. I had to think about that one for a bit, but then I remembered that my daughter recently broke one of her dress up necklaces and I kept some of the pieces! Perfect!

This is my card, beads and all, using the new Whimsy Alligator stamp! The papers are SU! cardstock in Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, and Old Olive. I'm loving the new in colors that SU! just released. The DP is BasicGrey Lemonade, perfect for a summer feel.

The image has been colored with Copics and popped up on foam tape. I created the scene using the new Whimsy Animals Accessories Sets and some Copics. I also added some glitter accents here and there, but it's hard to see in the photo. The final accents on this card are Prima flowers, buttons, dew drop beads, polka dot grosgrain ribbon, a wire heart, and the beads from my daughter's necklace.

This card also fits the challenges at The Pink Elephant and Lili of the Valley which are both animals and then at Creative Card Crew with the theme of Polka Dots, which I have in the ribbon and the gel pen accents.

Thanks for stopping by today. Whimsy Stamps is currently looking for a new designer to join our team. The call is open until July 31st. For details, click HERE. Have a great Wednesday! Happy stamping! :)
