Look Hoo's Graduating.....



Hello Friends and Happy Wednesday! Today we have 'Review Day' at Whimsy Stamps. You can find awesome new inspirational cards using the new April release stamps and dies on the Whimsy blog. Created by the fabulous Whimsy DT! Please click HERE to see them all out

For my card I used this cute little grad owl called 'Look Hoo's Graduating':

I colored him using Copics (E40, E41, E42, E43, E44, E30, E31 for the feathers - C9, C7, C5, C3, C1, C00 for his grad hat - reds R39, R37, R35, R14, R12 and YR30, YR31, YR21 for his eyes)  and used a Prisma pencil (non-photo blue) for the outline and underneath his feet (french grey 90%). 
DP is from Basic Grey. I kept the card intentionally more simple so it can be used for boys and girls. For the shaped card base I used Spellbinders Labels 1 grand dies. After cutting and embossing I distressed the cardstock with a sanding block. I got this idea from my super talented DT-teamie Beate. She does this a lot on her cards and I just love the look of it! So I had to give it a try.
The corner die and the the bottle cap die I used to cut out the sentiment are from Whimsy's Shapeology collection. The sentiment is from the Retro Bottle Cap Sentiments.
And that gorgeous seam binding can be found HERE and it's the 'Rose Ribbon'. All other embellies are from my stash.





I hope you liked my little grad card and don't forget to visit the Whimsy Inspirational blog for even more new creations from the fab Whimsy DT!

Hugs,
