Whimsy Stamps new release blog hop

Whimsy Stamps is releasing a brand new batch of rubber gorgeousness today - 3 new images from Crissy Armstrong and 3 new sentiment sets from Raindrop Echo Designs - REALLY nice ones! And we're hopping to celebrate! You could win the whole release so come on, join the hop!!

If you came here from Simonne's blog, you're on right track. If not, you might want to start from Chris's blog  so you wouldn't miss anything!

I decided to showcase Crissy's Moonlit Ride, don't you just love her carousel horses!! This stamp reminded me of Mary Poppins books and fairground glam so I guess I tried to combine both.



To take the "edge" off the mirror card I embossed it with Sizzix texture plates and Cuttlebug folders. Now I wish I had used dull gold card instead of mirror card. Whereas it IS just as glam as I was looking for, it's REALLY tricky to photograph with all the reflections.



The image is coloured with Copic Markers and had a go at drawing the night sky with Copics too. Needs practice - but it was fun!!



I love all the little details on the horse and could not of course resist highlighting some bits with Sakura clear glitter pens. That stuff really sparkles!!



Copic Markers:
The horse: W9/7/5/3/1/00
blue details: B05/06/02/01/00/0000
Gold details: E99/39, YR14/23, Y17/15/00
Sorry, was too busy experimenting and forgot to write down colours for the sky.
