Whimsy April Release Sneak Peek


Hello Everyone & Welcome to the Whimsy Stamps April Release Sneak Peek Hop! Today the Whimsy DT is showcasing some of the new April release stamps prior to the official release tomorrow, April 24th. Please scroll down for a list of participating DT members or go the the Whimsy Inspirational blog! As always there will be prizes hidden on some of the participating DT blogs, so make sure you leave a comment on each blog ;) Winners will be announced on Friday on the Whimsy Inspirational blog.

Today I like to show you a card I made with one of the new Monika Martinson images called 'Vibrant Violets'. Momas designs are the newest addition to the Whimsy rubber stamps collection. Monika design's the most beautiful floral images.


I colored the beautiful violet image with Copics and made my card in a clean and simple style. The sentiment comes with the 'Vibrant Violets' set. These floral images are perfect for many occasions and so much fun to color.


Unfortunately I did not write down the Copic colors I used but as far as I remember the blues were from the B60's range, the greens YG11, 13, 17 and the yellow something like Y11, 13, 15, 17



Not much embellies used on this card besides ribbon, 3 mini pearls and some Stickles on the blossoms. As much as I like to embellish my cards once in a while I enjoy making CAS cards. :) I have another CAS creation to share with you tomorrow on release day. So make sure you stop by again but for now please visit my DT sisters blogs for their sneak peek creations today
