Happy Sunday to you all! I'm typing this up on Friday night as I'm in Delaware and won't be getting home till late on Sunday morning. I hope you all are enjoying the fall weekend---boy it's gotten chilly here and I'm not so liking it, blech! lOL--you know I don't care for the cold and fall just means that winter is soon to come--BOOOOO! I'll share some pics with you later this week of my classes!
Today I have a fun post to share with you! I'm a lucky Guest Designer for Whimsy Stamps New Holiday Release this month and I get to share one of the awesome new stamps being released! There is a HUGE BLOG HOP featuring fabulous designers and artists that you don't want to miss out on---as you hop different blogs will be giving some fun Blog Candy out so make sure to visit everyone!! If you are just starting with me make sure to start at the beginning at the awesome Bev Rochester's Blog HERE!
I got to work with this beautiful stamp called "Starry Night" by Crissy Armstrong--isn't it too cute?! I just love it and it was so much FUN to color! I used some fun new papers by Bo Bunny "Winter Joy"--I love the fun prints and mix of colors! I used some lilac sheer wired ribbon and used my Bow Easy to create the bow and rippled the ends. The white border was created with a MS border punch and then I added some pearls to finish it off.
My images got colored with Copics including the dark sky in a more Monet effect and then I had some major FUN gussying up the image. I used Fun Flock on the fur trims on the hats and earmuffs for some fuzziness, then I used Diamond Glaze on the penguin so he's shiny and then some more MS Snow Glitter on the snowy areas. The stars got Stickles so they sparkle!
The snowflakes were made with punches and the white one got coated in my favorite MS Snow Glitter.
Now to continue on your hop and to look for some sweet candy while you're hopping--your next stop is Chris Olsen HERE! Have fun hopping!
