~ Wolf Stamp, Two Ways by Nicolette ~

Hello Whimsy Stamp Fans!

Today I am sharing with you two different ways to color the Wolf Head Stamp from Whimsy Stamp's newest release.   I love being able to take one stamp and totally create two totally different looks. This stamp is super easy to color as the shading areas are already marked where they need to be.

For my first card, I decided to make an elegant masculine birthday card in my favorite color combination, black and white.  I embossed the white panel using Whimsy's Sun Rays Stencil.  The picture below gives you a better look at how embossing this panel really elevates this card.  I added some foliage die cuts using Whimsy's Leaf Foliage 2 Die Set.  This set has a lot of great foliage dies but this die is my favorite. 

Coloring the wolf's eyes blue really brings him to life.  I love how stunning this card turned out!

For my second card, I decided to design a card that reminded me of those cool wolf shirts you see at gas stations when you travel.  This card would not only be perfect for halloween but a boy's birthday. I know this, because when my grandson saw this card he goes, "This looks so cool, how did you do that!  Best compliment ever!!!

I embossed the grapevine looking arch from the Howling Night's Clear Stamp Set with WOW!'s Ebony Embossing Powder.  I think this stamp is creepy cool and I love how it helped bring my vision to life.

I added Clear Wink of Stella to the stars.  It's hard to tell in the picture how shimmery they really are but trust me, it adds twinkly goodness to the night sky.  I decided to color the wolf's eyes yellow in this design.  I think it makes them look piercing and like he's peering deep into my soul.
