Whimsy March 2015 Release - Grand Blog Hop!

Welcome to the ...

Whimsy Stamps March release BLOG HOP!
The DT  have been sharing some amazing creations made with the new stamps over the last couple of days, and today we are celebrating their release with a GRAND BLOG HOP!

You can see all the stamps and dies from this release, along with the last 2 days hops at the Whimsy blog. And the entire new release is available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store RIGHT NOW!

For today's card I have used the new image from Art by Mi Ran called 'Sierra', available from Whimsy Stamps.


The image was stamped with Memento ink and coloured with Copic markers. I trimmed around the image, then matt with two colours picked out from the pattern paper.


The papers are 'Live the Life you Love' digital papers from Sweet Shoppe Designs, and all edges were inked with Distress Inks 'Antique Linen'.


I finished with some ribbon, flowers and a few pearls... hope you like it!

So now it's time for you to continue today's hop!


One lucky hopper will win a $25 gift certificate!  To enter the draw, simply leave a comment at EVERY stop along the hop by 12.00pm noon on Friday March 13th.
