Whimsy Stamps February Rubber Release - Sneak Peek Day 5

2/08/2011 02:00:00 AM

Welcome to Sneak Peek Day 5 of the Whimsy Stamps February Rubber Release!
Today we're showing off a variety of the new stamps and dies to be released tomorrow.
For a full list of all of today's sneak peekers, please visit the Whimsy Stamps Inspiration Blog

Today I'm sneak peeking another one of Crissy's new images from the Fragrant Rose set and a sentiment from the Darling Daisies set.  These are both gorgeous sets of beautiful flowers.  Seriously, they are amazingly drawn with great detail and wonderful for coloring.

For this image, I tried the new fad (I think made popular by sweet Dorcas and Annika) of coloring on kraft cardstock with Prismacolor pencils.  This is my first attempt, so please be gentle.  I used to color with pencils on regular white cardstock, but that was a complete and utter failure.  I wonder what makes coloring on kraft so different? Somehow the colors behave differently.  I didn't use any OMS on the roses or the leaves at all, but used some for the bow.  I must admit, it was so nice to switch to a new medium and not have to worry about letting things dry, lol.

Oh, and yes, this is a one layer card and yes, no DP :)  Very CAS, very unlike me, but still very fun to make.

Hope you come back tomorrow to join me for THE BIG RELEASE PARTY!!  We're releasing 16 new stamp sets and 2 new dies - our biggest release ever!  There's lot of prizes to be won and lots of inspiration to be soaked in so won't you join us, pretty please?  I have three more cards to share!

See you tomorrow ;)
