Whimsy Stamps ~ Life's A Beach

Hey there my lovely crafty pals. I'm here finally with my Whimsy Wednesday post from last week! So late you say?! But actually, it was by design. I had my last few posts for the Paper Door team, which I'm now at the end of my term there. So I was posting quite a few posts last week and conscious I didn't want to flood the Whimsy feed with too many posts from me! Hehe, is that possible? Or am I over thinking things?! Anyhow, I'm super excited to share this adorable image with you. It's Penguin Beach Chair by Crissy Armstrong and I absolutely adore this cutie! I so want to be that penguin, lounging on a warm beach! Looks idyllic!

I've used the fabulous large word dies Happy and Smile for this creation. I diecut the smile twice, so that I had an extra 'S' to add to the end of the word, which worked a treat! I added some Glossy Accents over the diecuts to make them shiny and add a little dimension too. The fabulous paper I've used is from a Bobunny paper set called Barefoot Bliss. I edged all the papers with Tea Dye Distress Ink and added the layers at a jaunty angle for a bit of fun. 

I've coloured this gorgeous image with my Copic Markers and I'm so pleased with how the sand came out! Some simple dotting of ink here and there really did give the illusion of a sandy beach. The images this month have been such cuties and full of Summer fun! I really adore this one and you can check out some more of the line up by clicking on the banner below.

I'll be back again soon, with another crafty adventure, but in the meantime, come and join us on the Whimsy Stamps Facebook Page for a constant stream of Inspiration. We'd love to see you share your Whimsy Stamps creations there too. Hugs and happy crafting until next time xoxo
