Whimsy Sneak Peek - Some Wishes

Hello and Happy Monday!

Happy Memorial Day to those in the USA and a BIG HUGE thanks to all the men and women, who serve in our armed forces, for their dedication and sacrifice to our country and for our freedom!

Today I have a quick post to share with you a sneak peek at one of the new images for our Whimsy Stamps Digital Collection. This image is called Maya Making Wishes and she was created by Crissy Armstrong. This new image and many, many more will be releasing tomorrow at Noon EST!

I've used the sketch from Sketch Saturday with some BG Kioshi papers. After I made my card last Friday using this pretty green and blue paper, I knew I wanted to make another card with it. I love this combo! I've colored my image with Copics and used Crissy's video tutorial for coloring dark skin tones. I've never colored a darker skin image, but for my first attempt I think she turned out pretty well. Crissy's video was very helpful too. I also used Crissy's dotty background technique to add some fun accents as well as to hide a few boo boos of ink bleeding. Ooops! To finish my card I embellished with flowers, cherry blossom. ribbon, a charm, and some sticky pearls and gems in black.

This card also fits the challenges at:
The Pink Elephant: Gotta Wear Shades
Totally Gorgeous: Wings
Sunday's with Crissy: Layers
Cupcake Craft: Summer Delights

Thanks for dropping by today. I hope you have a great afternoon! See you back here tomorrow at Noon EST for our new release celebration! Be sure to visit the other Whimsy DT blogs for more sneak peeks too!

Before I go...I'll leave you with a little giggle too....

"I think I'm what?"

Happy Stamping,
