Whimsy Wednesday ~ Crown of Daisies

Hello again. I'm back with another post today, featuring one of my favourite ever Whimsy Stamps by the talented Crissy Armstrong called Crown of Daisies. I've loved this stamp ever since I first saw it and if you've been following my blog a while, you may recall this creation I made with this stamp previously. I've gone for the same colourway in her dress, as I just really loved that look the first time I coloured it up. 

I've used the lovely Notched Squares Die Set from Whimsy Stamps to create the card shape and layers and then for the image itself I've used the newer and equally lovely Wavy Stitched Squares Die Set. I've been using both these sets quite a lot lately. The notched squares especially is my 'go to' card shape to add a little interest to an otherwise plain square card. I love the little bit of interest the stitched edge and notched corners add.

I coloured the image in with my Copic Markers, but I used my Promarkers for the sky and grass this time, as they had the right tones to work in with the paper I wanted to use. I just love the yellow and white for the dress, I didn't want to change that combination from the first time I coloured it, I just love how it came out and it's intended for my sweet niece in Australia, whose mummy loves yellow, so I know this will go down well with her. 

This is my last Whimsy post for June, we have a brand New Release lined up and ready for July and a new Guest Designer whose creations I can't wait to share with you. Be sure to check out all the gorgeousness that was in the June Release and come on back next week for the July New Release which is going to be fabulous!

Click through to the store on the banner above for a closer look at the June release. This gorgeous image was from a previous Digital Release, so you can find that by clicking through on the thumbnails at the foot of this post. I'll be back in the morning with my Southern Girls DT post, so I'll catch you again then. Have a wonderful night (or day if you're on the top of the world, hehe). Hugs xoxo
