Whimsy Day 4 April Release


Hello and welcome to Day 4 of our April Rubber Stamp & Die Release Showcase!

On Wednesday (18 April) Whimsy Stamps released this month's new rubber designs and new Shapeology dies. From then until 24 April 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 25 April.

I have to tell you, I normally do NOT like Mermaid type stamps, but when I saw "Goldie", I absolutely, without a doubt, HAD to HAVE her! haha!  Is this not the sweetest ever Mermaid??? Hello!!! Sylvia Zet strikes again with another beauty.  I had a ball coloring her and took my sweet time doing it too.  haha!


My sentiment is one of the new stamp sets from Whimsy called Vertical Tickets.

Of course, I colored her with distress inks again.  I used a bazillion combinations of colors to get her to look just like I wanted.  If you look close, I used a thin layer of Faded Jeans all across the largest bubble, even on her tummy to make it look like she was behind the bubble.  Her fin has Stardust Stickles.


 Here is a picture showing you the "bubbles" with those Raindrops we all used to use haha!  They worked perfect for a little added dimension.

My flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts! I also used the pretty Guipure lace fromWild Orchid.

Sandy said...

Gorgeous card and your colors are so beautiful! Can you give me any advice Dena on how to make my colors come out more true. Our camera is a good. one. The last card I made, the colors just looked too bright and I never could get the colors to come out right. I was just sick because it was one of the prettiest tags I have made. I noticed how pure, crisp and clean your colors looked on your card. Can you offer up some advice? Thanks!!
Sandy
