Whimsy Inspiration - Week 6

Afternoon everyone 💜 

Well by the time you read this post I will be winging my way to a relaxing holiday in the sun. I'm off to Majorca for a week of sun and relaxation. Yay! Mind you my hubbie and I didn't realise that it was Whit week here in the UK, and the kiddiewinks are off school all week. If we had realised we most definitely wouldn't have been going quite yet. That's the trouble when you have grown up kiddiewinks you have no idea when the school holidays are. But hey ho, it's all booked now and we're enroute.

Anyhoo back to biz --- for my Whimsy card for this week I've used a fabulous stamp by Marina Fedotova; it's deeply etched rubber mounted on cling cushion foam and it's available from the Whimsy Store. The stamp is from the set called 'Norbert and Fiona Playtime', but on this occasion I've only used Norbert the Dragon.  I stamped everything onto grey pastel paper which added a little bit of texture and then used my new Caran D'Ache Luminance Pencils to add all the detail. I hope you like it. x

All the links to the specific Whimsy products can be found below and the link to the general store is here.

Here's What I Did
First I die cut a rectangle from grey paper designed for pastel pencil and stamped the dragon, stars and sentiment. I coloured every element with coloured pencils.

The completed picture was added to the front of a black 5" x 7" side fold card blank. To finish the card I added gold glitter pen to the stars.

Here's What I Used 
Rubber Stamp: Norbert and Fiona Playtime 

Other:  5" x 7" Black Card Blank, Grey Pastel Card, Double Pierced Rectangle Dies (Creative Expressions), Caran D'Ache Luminance Pencils, Gold Glitter Pen

I love, love, LOVE the way you've coloured this adorable dragon. His skin is luminous! The play of light on his belly, he's just gorgeous. Stunning creation. The stitched border is such a perfect finish too. Gorgeous creation hunny. Hugs, Wends xoxo
