Blog hop with cool news!

Whimsy Stamps have some fab news to share with you today - we have a new rubber artist joining our team.... KENNY KIERNAN!

As many of you will know, Kenny K is currently a digital stamp artist (amongst many other things) and although Whimsy will not be carrying any Kenny K digis, we are making some of Kenny's existing designs into rubber and then hopefully adding some new designs along the line that will be exclusive to the Whimsy rubber collection!

So to celebrate this wonderful new venture, the Whimsy Stamps DT plus our fab special Whimsy guests Elaine Hughes, Deb, and Janna, are holding a BLOG HOP to showcase the EIGHT images that are being made into rubber:


All That
Devilish Donna
Download Diva
Kitty Katastrophe
Luscious Linda
Movie Star
Rock Chick
Troublemaker

Remember that Whimsy Stamps will be carrying the rubber versions of these stamps only. Kenny K will continue to offer the digital versions in his store. The rubber stamps are available to PRE-ORDER from today from the Whimsy store, and will hopefully be in stock and start shipping from Dec 17th!

Our super-talented Ann (Raindrop Echo Designs) has designed some wonderful digital sentiments that work fabulously with these images - thank you Ann! These are also being released today!

If you would like to participate in the hop and you didn't arrive here from Patricia's blog, please CLICK HERE to return to the beginning of the hop at Simonne's blog.

The hop starts today (Thursday December 16th at noon EST) and ends on Thursday December 23rd at noon EST.

For this hop we have 4 different prize draws! The grand prize of ALL 8 of the new release rubber stamps is being hosted by Denise at the very end of the hop, but there are also 3 mini candy stops throughout the hop! I'm not going to tell you where they are, so you'll just have to keep on hopping to find them! *wink* [Winners will be announced on December 23rd after the hop ends - what a wonderful Christmas present for those lucky hoppers!]

For my blog hop creation I used A Movie Star!
She is coloured with Copic markers. I used the papers for Pink Paislee which were absolutely perfect for the image and theme!
The sentiment is from Raindrop Echo's digi set Livin' in Fast Lane which is designed specifically to go with these images!
COPIC COLOURS:
Skin: E11/21/00/0000
lips: R29/27/14/21
eyes: BG18/13
hair: Y04/31/02, YR18/24/14, E39
top: Y06/04/YR18/14/24
Costume: C8/7/5/3/1/00
So now it's time for you to continue the hop by hopping on over to DEB's blog - she always has the most gorgeous creations on offer!

Finally, here is a complete blog hop list in hopping order:

Wow - excellent job coloring her face! Mine are still touch and go but more and more are starting to turn out. I like where you defined her nose... I'll have to try that.

On another note, did you read the list from Zoe yet? I'm okay with any image so let me know if that's the one you want to feature for the hop. ;D
