Whimsy Showcase Day 4 - Dare to Fly

 
Hello and welcome to Day 4 of our June Rubber & Die Release Showcase! On Wednesday (20 June) Whimsy Stamps released this month's new rubber designs, new Shapeology dies and new Shape EZ by TLC. From then until 26 June the Whimsy Stamps DT and Special Guests are showcasing these fabulous new goodies with a daily mini blog hop and I am part of today’s hop! So here's what I came up with for today:
I used the cute stamp 'Cubbin' Around' from Meljens Designs and colored it with Copics. As I wanted the cub's to be white tigers I just added little accents using W3-W1-W00 and R20-R00-R000 for the cheeks and ears. I also added Stickles Stardust to the stripes but unfortunately I was not able to catch that on the photo. Papers are from Basic Grey's 'Little Black Dress' collection. Sentiment is from Raindrop Echo Designs 'Take Flight' sentiment collection and cut out with the matching Shapeology die.

Here's a close-up on the playing cub's:

This card is available for sale HERE

I also decorated the inside of the card to match the outside.

Other stuff I used on my card: Jute ribbon, buttons, hemp cord, mulberry paper flowers, Stickles, rhinestones, Whimsy Shapeology 'Corner Die' and 'Elegant Flourishes Die'
