Kicking up Leaves

Good morning everyone!  I hope you've had a wonderful week and found some time to do some crafting and coloring.  It's my turn (Shelby) to, hopefully, give you a little bit of inspiration for the day.

This fabuloso stamp is by Crissy Armstrong and is called Kicking up Leaves.  Don't they just make for the most perfect Fall scene?  The sentiment and coordinating die cut are from Raindrop Echo Designs is called Pumpkin Sentiments.

This adorable pair have been colored up with a variety of alcohol based markers and a touch of colored pencils.

Thanks for stopping by today, and I hope you have a great rest of your week.

Cozy Cardi!

Hi Everyone! It's Shannah here today to share some Whimsy Inspiration with you!

For this project, I inked up the sweet new image from Time 4 Tea Designs called 'Cozy Cardi'. I also used a sentiment from the new 'Chalkboards 2' set from  SC Designs.
 
I stamped the image and sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Ink, coloured the image with Copicmarkers, and sponged around both pieces with Distress Ink.
 

 
The papers are from Basic Grey 'Pyrus' 6 x 6 paper pad, and I only had small pieces left so arranged them in a pattern with wide lace covering where they didn't quite meet! (cheeky I know!)
  
 
I framed the image and sentiment with Nestabilities Romantic Rectangles and attached with mounting foam. To finish I embellished with some roses and pearls.
You can see more details on my Blog;  Embellished ExpresShan's.

Hope you have a wonderful week!

Autumn Owl

Good Morning Whimsy Fans and thanks for stopping by!
Ellie  here today, it's my turn to share a little Whimsy Inspiration with you. If you have followed our recent blog hops, then you might remember seeing this card.


  The background was made using watercolor paints. The owl image was stamped twice, once onto my watercolored background, and once onto copic blending card. I used a black micron pen to extend the fence. Moon was masked off using a 1" punched out circle.


Product list:
Autumn Owl , Autumn letter seals (both whimsy stamps)
bat from Halloween dies set, contest ribbon die set  (both whimsy stamps)
Grumbacher deluxe watercolors, copics for image
1" circle punch for moon mask
 
Have a great day!!
