Whimsy Stamps ~ Never Grow Old

Hey crafty friends, can you believe it's December?! I know I say this every year at this time of the year, but honestly, did someone hit the fast forward button?! Crazy that it'll be Christmas in only a few weeks! Whimsy Stamps has a fun final New Release for 2023, our only one during December and it's live today, This crazy fun dude by artist Dustin Pike is part of this release. I've seen this sentiment around and always thought it was quite funny and paired with this silly skelly boi, it's really a giggle. I'll have to find the right person and situation to give this one as it's not at all the kind of card I'd usually make! But I love the diversity in Whimsy's range, not everything will be 'your cup of tea', but it for sure will be someones! I love Dustin's images, they're often quirky and irreverent and always so much fun.

I kept the design for this card pretty simple, adding a tiny frame of spotty paper from Whimsy's Mix n Match Neutrals Paper Pack. I edged the image layer and the paper layer with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink to give it a more finished look. I added the sentiment straight to the base layer which is a Mini Slimline Panel from Gina K Designs. I cut a mini slimline card base from Hammermill 100lb Copy Paper, which is a nice sturdy paper for card bases, also incidentally really lovely to use for Copic Markers.

I drew in a 'ground' for this dare devil dude to ride his unicycle on and coloured him up with Copic Markers too. I added a bit of red to the unicycle seat and red and green to his hat to bring in some colour on this otherwise quite monochromatic card. I felt that leaving this card relatively plain, really drew the eye to his shenanigans!

I will be back with another creation using this fun new release very soon and I will have more Christmas cards to share for sure. Wishing you a wonderful weekend ahead and happy crafty hours. Hugs, Wends xoxo
