Whimsy Stamps/Elisabeth Bell release

On Wednesday (25 July), Whimsy Stamps released this month's new rubber designs, new Shapeology dies, new Shape EZ by TLC templates and new MRD digital papers. From then until 31 July 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!  Each mini blog hop has a new release prize hidden somewhere along the way and you have 24hrs to enter each prize draw.

To be entered into today's mini blog hop prize draw, be sure to leave a comment on ALL of the DT's posts listed below by 12.00PM EST tomorrow. All winners will be announced on the Whimsy blog on 1 August.

I got my magazine commission all done and dusted so had some me time yesterday, I dug out the Distress Markers and had a play with one of the new Elisabeth Bell stamps.  It takes me twice as long to colour with Inks as opposed to colouring with Copics.   Thank goodness the watercolour paper I use stands up to a LOT of water, ink, blending and layers – I was expecting to wear a hole through it lol.

This is Li'l Tag-a-longs - Li'l Sweet Tweeter by Elisabeth Bell.  I LOVE this newest release, there is not so much intricate detail with nice open areas so perfect for watercolouring.  Picture links to products used are at the end of the post.
