A bit of Whimsy

Hi there,

How are you all?  Somewhat of a different post for me today, I am entering the DT call at Whimsy Stamps.  I adore everything Whimsy, the stamp artists are so talented and I love all the extras as well.  The dies are so lovely and the clear stamps are so fun.  Whoops better stop rambling and get back to task.  I have created a card today using a sweet little fairy called Posey, I just think she is gorgeous.

Here is my card;
and a close up of my colouring

I went for soft tones today as I wanted her to look so sweet and pretty. I finished her with my clear Wink of Stella pen to her wings and shoes because every fairy needs some sparkle.  The papers are from the Echo Park Hello Summer paper pad and I have coloured her with Copic's.  The sentiment is from a Wee Stamps magazine freebie that I adore. The other dies used are from Joanna Sheen.

Now I guess I better try and sell myself, this is an application.  I'm not the best colourist but I do it for fun and I am constantly trying to get better.  I love to watch and learn from others and then work out what suits me best.  I am currently taking the Skin and Hair class and the Clothing class from Kit and Clowder and whilst I am still only part way through them I am learning so much and my colouring is benefitting.  I love colouring with my Copic's (my new addiction) and I am just starting to play with some other mediums such as SN pencils, Inktense pencils and Distress Inks/Markers.  I just love everything about Whimsy and I would so love to be part of the Design Team.

Oh, I couldn't just do one card with this cutie so here is another fun one for you.

Here she is again;
and another close up

Thanks for dropping by my little blog today, I so appreciate it.
Cheers Nicole
