Today I am super excited to share with you guys that I have been asked to join the Whimsy Stamps Digital Design Team. I absolutely love Whimsy Stamps so of course I had to say yes.
I am just getting back into my designing again after my Fiancé and I moving in together for the first time before we get married. So as you can imagine things here have been pretty hectic.
Today I have used an image from Whimsy Stamps called "Penguin Carolers" It was certainly a gorgeous stamp to colour.. I must say I am a little bias as I love all the Whimsy Penguin Images/Stamps. The Sentiment is from Christmas Wish Sentiments set.
I have coloured the image up using Copic Markers, I printed it using my Brother laser printer (first time printing on laser, I purchased it not long before we decided to move so didn't even open the box up). I really like the cleanliness of the print and of course that it is Copic safe.
The Copic Markers I have used on the image are as follows..
Music Sheets E50, E51, E53, E55
Scarves & Ear Muffs B02, B04, B06
Beanies R35, R37, R89 (I would have used R39 however it is bone dry and I need to order a refill)
Penguins YR02, YR04, YR09
T6, T8, T10
C2, 0 Colourless Blender, R20 for cheeks
I printed the image/Sentiment on Mondi Color Copy 250GSM.
I blended the background of the sentiment using Tim Holtz Ranger Mini Distress ink Tumbled Glass, I then cut it from an old Whimsy Die I have here called Slider 3 Die.
After colouring the image up I ran it through my Sizzx Big Shot using Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Dies. I added Clear Wink Of Stella to the Ear Muffs and the white sections of the beanies.
I thought the image still needed a little more bling so I added Uniball Signo Noble Metal - Silver onto the scarves for some added detail.
I cut a mat of Glitter blue cardstock from my stash and a sheet from Kaisercraft Silver Bells 6.5" Paper Pad. I also added a leftover strip of the glitter card on top of the patterned papers. I adhered these together using Scotch ATG then added them to a pre-made card base from Twiddleybitz.
I added the die cut penguins to layers using Scotch ATG and the sentiment using Scotch Foam Tape.
I hope you have enjoyed my post today using images from Whimsy Stamps, if you have any questions feel free to send me a message or contact me via facebook (all links can be found below).
