Whimsy Inspiration - Oliver & Shayla

Hi Everyone!

Just popping on to share a little Whimsy Inspiration with you today!

This image is from Whimsy's January New Release and is called "Oliver and Shayla" by new Whimsy designer Sandy Allnock. Isn't it a sweetie? You can check out Sandy's cute new collection called 'Ciara's Friends' at the Whimsy store HERE.

I coloured sweet "Oliver and Shayla" with Copics, and used chalks to create some clouds for the background.
The papers are Crate Paper 'Pretty Party' (I think have a nice 'country' feel to them), and I used this weeks Deconstructed Sketch No135 as a guide.

There are several great sentiments that come with this stamp set, so I used a simple (HUG) on the front and one that reads "Snuggles make everything so much better" on the inside.
Just a couple of flowers and pearls was all I used to finish it off.

Hope you like it!
Have a fabulous week, and I'll see you next week with some more crafty inspiration!

Here's what I used on my card:
Whimsy Stamps Products: "Oliver and Shayla" from Sandy Allnock's 'Ciara's Friends' and included sentiments available at Whimsy Stamps.
Colouring Medium/Ink: Memento 'Tuxedo' Ink, Copics, Distress Ink 'Antique Linen';

Papers: Cardstock - SU 'Chocolate Chip'; DP - Crate Paper 'Pretty Party' 6x6 papers;
Embellishments: Sweetheart Blossoms from I Am Roses, Kaisercraft 'Chocolate' Pearls;
