Steampunk Girl

Happy Monday, Whimsy fans!
Ellie here today, my turn to share a creation with you! You might have already seen this if you hopped along with us last week, it was my first blog hop card.
Although steampunk isn't really my thing, this image was so much fun to color and work with! And I have to admit, I am very happy how my card turned out!

I  used copic colors for coloring. It was my first time coloring black/gray hair. I did use a blue copic along with gray tones, to give the hair a blue undertone. My main colors were going to be black, red and white, but then when playing around with the card design, I decided to bring in more blue. 
The little squares were stamped using an ancient SU stamp. You could easily use a small inked acrylic block for this too, or simply make your own square stamp with crafting foam. 
The clock designs were done using a stencil. Sorry I don't know the company of the stencil, as I removed it from the packaging. Sentiments and stitched border are from Whimsy's new set "Sew Special". The dotted border is washi tape from Joann's. I used the new button dies to cut out the button to add to my card. Finished it off by adding some glitter and sewed the edges.

Have a great day!

Super Boy....up up and away

Hello Whimsy fans hows it going ? its a delightful afternoon
here in Cornwall in the UK. How is the weather where you are ?


My inspiration post is a little late this week because
it was the grand blog hop on the same day, but without further ado
 here the my inspiration card 
I have used Super Boy by the very talented Illustrator 

Krista-Heij-Barber, he is they cutest little dude, 
on this card I have used a little acetate to mount the zap and pow
to give this card a little movement. I used the Pierced Stars to 
help draw your eye to the image.

 
















Have the very best of Sundays Whimsy friends
and i will see you soon
take care

Moondrop



Hello, Louise here today
For my card I have used the gorgeous stamp called
I have coloured the image with copics and used kraft card to colour on
I am really pleased with how the copics worked on Kraft.


I have gone for a simple layout and used the sentiment that came with the stamp
I am going to save this card for my teenage daughters birthday
because she loves anything a little quirky and different.
