Whimsy Wednesday ~ Sweet Angie
Hey there crafty pals. Hope your week/year is going well! Hehe, we're only a few days in, so if I missed wishing you a truly wonderful New Year, let me do that now! I wish you love, and laughter, happy memory making moments and more than enough pennies for new craft stash! We're kicking off this New Year with a bang at Whimsy Stamps. There is a huge collection of new digital images in the vault now and the DT are still spinning from all the delish images we get to play with! Talk about a dream gig! It is especially true for me as I've been a Whimsy fan from my very early crafty days and one of the Whimsy artists I admired so much back then, was Sylvia Zet.
We are so excited that a huge collection of Sylvia's images has now been added to the digital vault! So I've had super fun creating with this adorable image which is called 'Angie'. I've two wee nieces turning one very soon, so I'll be crafting with as many adorable lil' babes as possible so you know I snatched this one up when I saw it!
I've coloured the image with my Copic Markers. I chose soft subtle colours for this make as there was lots of colour in the paper. I added Glossy Accents to the ladybug and Wink of Stella to the edge of the cloud and the stars and also to this wee angels wings.
I've used a delish new digital paper from Whimsy Stamps to create the card base, and then layered up the image on foam for a little dimension before adding it to the base. I used the sweet cloud set from Whimsy Stamps to create the cute clouds and I even added the sentiment to one of the bigger clouds. This sentiment is also Whimsy Stamps but from a retired set in my stash. The sweet glittery red heart was cut with a piece from a fabulous set of Whimsy dies which was recently retired. I love how timeless their designs are, I just keep building on my collection and they continue to be used, new and old together.
I'm trying to up my photography game after the weeks I spent with my sis in the lead up to Christmas. I still have a long way to go, but it's fun trying and I'm slowly getting the hang of things. Not 100% happy with the light in these shots, the close up was taken inside under lights to try and capture the sparkle, so is a bit 'warmer' than the outside shots. But I'm getting there. So much still to learn though.
We have a seriously gorgeous Digital New Release this month, so be sure to check it out via the link above and also be sure to check out the 'brand new in digi', Wee Stamps Digital Collection by Sylvia Zet. We're super excited to have her gorgeous range now available as digital images at Whimsy Stamps. So if you've loved her designs in the past but wished for a digital version, they're now at home in the digital vault at Whimsy Stamps, so fill your boots! This is my final post for today, it's the London bus thing all over, hehe, I'll be back again soon, but not perhaps with three in a row for a bit! Hugs and happy crafting xoxo
