Whimsy Stamps Elisabeth Bell Release Preview Day 1 for Wild Orchid Crafts challenge

Happy Monday (is there such a thing lol).  It’s Wild Orchid challenge day today and not only that but a new artist has joined the Whimsy family – please give a warm Whimsy welcome to the amazing ... Elisabeth Bell! Elisabeth’s debut release for Whimsy Stamps is the Little Cottage Cuties line of rubber stamps and will be available to buy from the Whimsy store on Wednesday (7 March 2012). In the lead up to their release, the Whimsy DT and Special Guests are excited to share with you 2 days packed full of previews of these gorgeous stamps. Today we are sharing projects made with Apple Blossom and Sun Kissed, and we are holding a 24hr mini blog hop to celebrate!

 
And I tell ya, it was so difficult to choose between these two cuties which one I was going to use first!  In the end I tossed a coin and Miss Sun Kissed won out.  The Wild Orchid challenge this week is to use at least 3 different shapes on your project.  So …. I used a rectangle, a nesties shape for the image and the banner shape that the sentiment is on.  I also used scalloped lace and a scalloped die cut border as extra shapes.

The delish papers are Glitz Designs Pretty in Pink pad only I went and covered up most of the pattern on the bottom layer.  I have coloured Sun Kissed with Copics and pencils:
Hair: E47, 44, 42, 40 and Warm Grey 90% pencil
Skin: E11, 00, 000, 0000. R20, 30
Apron: E41, E40 and Warm Grey 50% pencil
Jeans: E44, 42, 40 and Warm Grey 70% pencil
Top and flowers: R59, 56, 85, 83, 81, RV000, 0000 and Tuscan Red Pencil
Grass: YG63, 61, G20, G85 and Olive Green pencil
Shadow: Muted Turquoise pencil
 
Isn’t she just a doll??!!??
bev-rochester-whimsy-eb-sunkissed-2
 
The lace and flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, I used trellis rose, 25mm wild rose, 15mm roses, 10mm roses and lilies.  The sentiment is from the Whimsy Friendship Notables 2 set.  For the UK girls, these new stamps by Elisabeth Bell will be available at Dies to Die For on the 7th, and from Whimsy Stamps for everyone else.

  107. What a talented lady Elizabeth is, these images are absolutely stunning. I think both images are gorgeous and owning either would be a treasure, but I must admit the image you have used just beats the other by a hair for me. Today, again, your colouring is wonderful and I love that you have given the image full flushed cheeks as would probably be the case with her playing out in the flowers.
    Thanks for the mini blog hop, it has given me a couple of new blogs to explore.
    Regards Linda
