Whimsy Stamps July Digi Release Blog Hop

Hi All and welcome to Whimsy July Digital Release Blog Hop!! Be sure to leave a comment at the end of the post because two randomly chosen hoppin' blogs get to give away a Whimisy digi of your choice - plus there's a grand prize of FIVE images!

If you are coming from Melissa's blog, then you're totally on the right track! If you just happened to wander here (woo-hoo, I'm glad to see you!) then you might want to jump back to the start at Whimsy Inspirations Blog to make sure you won't miss out on anything!!

The hop is going to remain open until Wednesday, July 7th.

Now to the reason you're here (hopefully!!lol) - the card. I chose Puss In Boots by Melissa Jenkins for my image, doesn't he look just soooo swanky!!??





The colouring is mainly Copics, did the ground and blue shadow with Derwent Inktense pencils and Sansador. The rest of the background is sponged with Memento Summer Sky and Pear Tart.

The sentiment is from the digital sentiment set matching the image, also now available at Whimsy Stamps.





The papers are a mixture of OA and Websters Pages. All happily sponged with Tea Dye and Vintage Photo Distress Inks, then lightly distressed with scissors.

The kraft photo corners I found in office supplies store, they came in a bag of about gazillion. Ribbon, netting, buttons and twine all from my stash, the only other thing I used was some Dew Drops.





Copics:
Puss: E:49/29/99/97/13/24/, YR12, Y12YR18/02/82
Boots: R59/37/17/05/14//22/02, W7/5/3
Background: Prismacolour Pencils

Now hop to our next stop: Donna's fabulous blog, she has something absolutely stunning in store for you!

I would also like to enter some challenges:
Sketch Saturday - the sketch

Thanks for hopping and happy crafting!
Hugs
