Hello everyone! Hope your Saturday is going well. It is really warm here which I am very thankful for. 

Today I want to share a card I made for Whimsy Stamps.  I used an image from Krista Heij-Barber 'Friendship Bunny and Chick'.  

I colored these cuties with my Inktense pencils. 

The background was done with Prima oil pastels. I glittered up the heart and the Whimsy 'Friend' die
For the dotted border I used the Clearly Whimsy set 'Get in Line'

Hope you like my card. Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful weekend!

Hugs, Cindy

'Woodland Owl'----Lee Holland new artist at Whimsy Stamps

Hello!! Hope you have had a great week!! Again, I don't know where mine has gone!!!  Today I want to share a card I made using 'Woodland Owl'  by Lee Holland, which is from the January release at Whimsy Stamps.

I have been wanting to try no-line coloring for awhile, so I finally did it!!

I had a lot of fun coloring this image, Why...I LOVE owls!!  And to top it off my kids were out exploring in our neighborhood a week ago and they came across an owl on the ground alive. Then all of a sudden it fell over and died.....:( The kids brought it home and wanted to help it somehow, unfortunately there was nothing we could do. So we dug a grave and buried him(?).... they named him Speckles. 

I kept him in mind when I colored this image. Such a beautiful bird!!!!

I also used a Clearly Whimsy stamp set for the sentiment 'Stitched Alphabet Upper' and the 'Stitched Cloud dies'.  I colored the letters with Copics and fussy cut them out. 

Copic colors used:

E70, E71, E74, 
E43, E44, E49
W00, W1, W2, W3, W6
R00, R11, R20, R22, R24
G40, G82, G94
BG0000, BG70
C00, C1

Hope you like my card. 

Thank you for stopping by!
Have a great weekend!
