Whimsy New Digital Release ~ Day 3 ~ Bella Ballerina
Hey there lovelies. I'm here to share my second design team creation with you for our latest release at Whimsy Stamps. There are so many gorgeous new items, both in the digital collection and clear and rubber stamps and stencils collection. There's a fabulous addition to the range this time around too, of DoveArt Studio Designs beautiful images. Plus one of my all time favourite stamp artists is now with Whimsy Stamps and there are several of her utterly enchanting images already available in store. I just LOVE Marina Fedotova's beautiful wistful fairies. Seriously beautiful. The digital designs are utterly fabulous too, with the inclusion of a super cute set of Tomte! If you don't know what a Tomte is, head over to my previous post and have a peek at my card and my Tomte collection. But for now, let me introduce you to Ballerina Bella. Isn't she adorable?!
All good Ballerina's know how to pirouette right?! So I decided to create a card with the fabulous Whimsy Stamps 'Slip & Slide' moveable elements die. I used the spiral element, so she moves around like a pirouetting ballerina! Perfect I think and such fun too.
I used a gorgeous plaid digital paper from the new release set called Gingham Mix. I think the colours in this gorgeous plaid paper are perfect for this sweet ballerina. I decided to colour her ballet shoes and tutu white, (shades of cool copic greys to achieve this) and I added lots of sparkle. The ballet shoes her hair bow and the top tier of the tutu have Wink of Stella on them for subtle sparkle, but I added a layer of loose glitter to the fru fru layers at the bottom of the tutu for extra dimension and bling. I think she truly is the cutest little dancing penguin!
With all that sparkle, I thought the 'Sparkle' diecut sentiment from the Christmas release set was just perfect to finish this card! I wanted the edges to have a bit of interest too, so I also used the Whimsy Stitched Border Die straight stitched line to create the stitched edge on the card.
I kept the card design very simple, as I didn't want her to catch on any embellies when she is spinning around. So it's CAS and sweet today. I hope to get a video done when the rain stops to show her spinning, but right now it's pouring and the light indoors isn't fab. So I'll update soon.
I hope you'll swing by the Whimsy Stamps Inspirations page on Facebook and check out the rest of the awesome creations my teamies are showcasing. They really are an insanely talented lot!
