Whimsy Stamps mini blog hop–Elisabeth Bell this time :)

On Wednesday Whimsy Stamps released this month's new rubber designs and new Shapeology dies. From then until 29 May the Whimsy Stamps DT and Special Guests are showcasing these fabulous new goodies with a daily mini blog hop and I am part of today’s hop!

For today's card I have used the adorable Little Jack and Bobbin Gone Fishin’ by Elisabeth Bell for Whimsy Stamps.  Isn’t he just too stinkin’ CUTE!?!  The fab sentiment is also from the new release, from the Family Ties set.

I have once again used my Distress Markers to colour him.  Oh I am loving them, especially for hair – the texture you can get is almost the same as with Copics.

I have used First Edition Up Up Away paper pad, and applied a fair bit of white gesso to them to lighten them up a bit.  I also gessoed the chipboard clock from Dusty Attic and adhered that to a star that I die cut.

I finished off with some Jute Ribbon, seam binding and a little adventure sign that was in a packet of buttons (this also didn’t escape the gesso treatment lol)

And the last picture, I just couldn't stop lol.

  5. Bev, I feel like a broken record but I don't know how else to describe your work other than fantaisc, fabulous and gorgeous. I was away from crafting for a couple years and now that I am back I seem to say the same things to you as I did back then. You amaze me with your talent, especially on male cards, because I have the hardest time making them and yours are always so fabulous. You inspire me everyday. Thank you!
