HAPPY B-DAY WHIMSY!!!!

Hello friends of Whimsy Stamps, today is my turn of publication and with great joy I show you how I colored the sweetest   Penguin Flies - Digital Stamp on the birthday WHIMSY !!! As you may have noticed on IG the BLOG HOP is underway on the occasion of the 10th anniversary Whimsy .... what a thrill !! I leave you the link to participate in the BLOG HOP (you have time still until noon ET Monday 12/17 when we will randomly select 2 winners and each receive $ 25)


But now I show you my card and its coloring!

I used the Nuvo Marker, I started with the paws, the cheeks ( 387 - 373 - 374) and the little body ( BLACK)


With the white gel pen I draw the light points


Now I'm going to the balloons (I also create the transparency of orange also the part that should be seen from the green balloon) 
GREEN: 410 - 412 - 416
ORANGE: 373 - 392 - 377




Also on the balloons I draw the light with the white gel pen! With the blue those the contour of the penguin and then all the sky, revising with the color on the parts that I want in the shade


After coloring the whole sky with blue, I create colored confetti with the colors used for the balloons and the white gel pen


Now I just have to create my CAS!


Best wishes WHIMSY !!!

GingerSnaps!

Howdy ya'll! I've been waiting to use the Slip 'n Slide Die Set from Whimsy - er, rather, it's been waiting for me patiently sitting on my desk. Well, I finally got around to using it and it's been so much fun. I used the large circle and combined it with the new GingerSnaps! clear stamp. I used a dime to help weight the spinner so it would spin easily. Lastly, I colored and used the Wishes Word Chipboard from Make it Crafty.



Colors and more pictures are on my blog HERE.

Polar Bear Christmas - special guest - Dena Concienne

Hello again, I'm back to share another sweet Whimsy Stamp with you.

This time around I am using one of Crissy Armstrong's stamps called Polar Bear's Christmas Tree.  I truly have a "thing" for polar bears.  I think they are adorable. 


He is super cute right?!!  I tore a piece of paper to make the snow bank background and used distress ink to color the sky.  I then flicked white paint onto the sky for the now.  The polar bear was also colored with distress ink.  I added some fur details with a white pen when all was dry.


I added the Holiday Word Die from Whimsy to the bottom.  I cut out several and stacked them together for a raised effect and cut a single red slightly off from the white.  I have again added lots of stickles for some winter sparkle.

Thank you Whimsy Stamps for having me as a Guest Designer, I totally enjoyed working with these super sweet stamps.

Thank you for checking out my blog today!  Hope everyone is keeping warm and cozy!

Hugs, Dena
