Whimsy DT - Proud Momma

Happy Easter!  I hope you are all enjoying the long weekend break.  I blitzed the house on Friday and had planned on bathing the dogs on Saturday but got stuck into some DT work and before I knew it the day had gone.  Soooo, those dogs are definitely getting a dunking today lol - watch them all head for the hills.  I might even get some photo's of them if I remember.

Whilst I was beavering away yesterday I made a card using the Proud Momma Carousel Horse set from Whimsy Stamps – I adore these images by Crissy Armstrong.  This is the first time I have attempted to colour one of these images with Distress Inks and Twinkling H2O’s (Mr Postie brought me my inks yesterday woohoo!) and love the effect.  So totally different from the  Copics though.

I have used one of the accessory stamps to stamp swirls around the edge of the image.  The sentiment is also one of the accessory stamps.  The papers are Doodlebug and DCWV.  The beautiful Cherry Blossoms and the heart pin are from Wild Orchid Crafts and have been blinged with Stickles and Glimmer Mist.

  30. Gorgeous card and beautiful colours. Thanks for visiting my blog. Your comment puzzled me a bit since I did use Magnolia's flower stamps in my card. I also used other stamps but it didn't say in the Just Magnolia challenge rules you can't use other stamps (or is that why it's called Just Magnolia). LOL!
