March Rubber Stamp Release - Grand Blog Hop




March Rubber Stamp Release Blog Hop


The DT  have been sharing some amazing creations made with the new stamps over the last couple of days, and today we are celebrating their release with a GRAND BLOG HOP!The hop starts today (Wednesday March 11th at 12.00PM noon ET) and ends on Friday, March 13th at 12.00pm noon ET.
For my release card today I choose  'Free Hugs' by Krista Heij-Barber
This cutie is colored with alcohol markers and the shadow is water colored. The sentiment comes with the stamp and the speech bubble is die cut using one of the 'Say What' Speech Bubble Die Set dies. I also used the Stitched Circles Die Set.

A close-up on the little guy:
To color the little bear I used Copics - E40's and cool greys as well as some reds




One lucky hopper will win a $25 gift certificate! To enter the draw, simply leave a comment at EVERY stop along the hop by 12.00pm noon on Friday March 13th. Please visit the Whimsy Inspirational blog to check out the stamps from this release. The entire new release is available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store RIGHT NOW!
We hope you've enjoyed this release!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!

What an adorable card; anyone would love to receive a hug from him. Really like the way you combined the watercolor background with the alcohol marker colored image. I'm going to give it a try, too. TFS
