a) it's an INCREDIBLE compliment - have you SEEN the work of Whimsy DT??
b) I flippin' adore their stamps to the oblivion and back.
So from now on I won't be giving ANY promises! lol
Anyways, this is my first Whimsy card as a fully fledged DT member:
I just had to use that moggie with a sign - so versatile, you could stamp any sentiment on it. I needed a card for a birthday of my son's friend from play school, so "Happy Birthday" it was. I stamped the moggie on cold press watercolour paper with Versafine ink - I prefer that to Stazon. And, you know, it felt GREAT to actually stamp!!
The colouring is once again Derwent Inktense pencils - this time with water. Lovin' them at the moment. The intensity of the pigment is just fabulous and because of the waterproof-when-dries factor it's a joy to add highlights with different colours without everything getting muddy!
The stars are from grungeboard set I've had for yonks and barely used. I dabbed a Tea Dye distress ink on top straight from pad so it pooled and was a bith blotchy, then blasted with heat gun and rubbed Frayed Burlap Distress Stickles on top with me finger. Heat gunned again. Nice 'n textured.
The papers are from old collection of MME, unfortunately I have NO idea, which one. Perfect for boy card though! Sentiment stamp is from LOTV set.
Had to dig very deep into my Random Button Box to find the perfect buttons and I have no idea where I got the burnt orange cord from. It was just there, staring at me, sayin' "I'm perfect. Use me!". lol
