Hello Whimsy fans, Simonne here!
Today, I'd like to share a card that I've just made using Water Lily - one of the fabulous brand new Whimsy Mythical Collection stamps designed exclusively for Whimsy by Katie Sowa:
I adore purple, but I usually shy away from it when making cards, as I've not had much success with it in the past. However, as soon as I stamped up Water Lily, I just knew that I had to use my (slightly neglected ... oops!) Basic Grey 'Wisteria' 6x6 paper pad, and of course the main 'colour' of those papers is purple, LOL! I added some Icicle Stickles to both Lily's wings and the 'water' dripping from the watering can - well, you can't have a fairy without glitter, can you? Hee hee! Ooh, and I also used my most favourite technique in the world and paper pieced Lily's dress (adding some shading with my Copics).
Finally, I just want to remind you that Whimsy has a fab Winter Clearance Sale going on at the moment, with 20% off selected winter-themed images (including the AWESOME Whimsy Holidya Postmarks stamp set - one of my all-time fave sentiment stamp sets - which includes sentiment stamps for New Years, Valentines, Easter, Christmas, Halloween and Thanksgiving!).
