Little Cottage Cuties Preview Day II




Hi everyone! Yesterday we announced the exciting news that the amazing Elisabeth Bell has joined the Whimsy Stamps family of artists. Elisabeth’s debut release for Whimsy Stamps is the Little Cottage Cuties line of rubber stamps and will be available to buy from the Whimsy store tomorrow (7 March 2012). In the lead up to their release, the Whimsy DT and Special Guests are excited to share with you 2 days packed full of previews of these gorgeous stamps. Today we are sharing projects made with Chloe and Picked Sweet, and we are holding a 24hr mini blog hop to celebrate! 


I choose Chloe for today's preview. However I didn't make a card or paper creation...... but see for yourself...

I just put the image in a simple white frame. I have to say Chloe is my absolute favorite image from this release. After I've colored her in, I thought this would make a nice picture to put in a girls room. I was thinking of decorating the frame first but I really like the simplicity. It brings all the attention to the image. And guess what....I did not use my Copics this time ;-) I colored using Prismas and OMS. Was real nice for a change using a different medium. Have to do that more often!

Here is a closer look on the image:

We have hidden one Chloe rubber stamp and one Picked Sweet rubber stamp somewhere along the way, so be sure to leave a comment on ALL of the DT's posts listed below by 12.00PM EST tomorrow to be entered into the prize draws.

Chloe is my fave, too. When Elisabeth first put her on her site, I asked her if she'd be sold as a stamp and now here she is! I am so stoked, and I love what you did with her. The white frame is perfect - I agree that you should leave it undecorated. Love your coloring, too!

Hello Iris,

All the best Linda
