For my blog hop creation I used one of Crissy Armstrong’s gorgeous new images – MYSTIC (available in the UK HERE).

Whimsy Stamps - Crissy Armstrong - Mystic available at www.quixoticpaperie.co.uk

I coloured Mystic and the background using Copic Markers.  And here’s the list!

Mystic: BV0000, BV20, BV23, RV000, R81, R83, R85, C00, C1, C2, C4 Grass: YG61, G82, G85, G99, BG93, BG96 Sky: B0000, B00, B02, C00, C1 0

I spent so long colouring the image and background, that I decided to create a keepsake item rather than a card!  I covered a Tando Creative 6×6 frame with stand using Echo Park Dots & Stripes – Candy Shoppe paper, and added some swirls using one of the accessory stamps from the Whimsy Stamps Proud Momma set.  I embellished with some 8mm flatback pearls.

COPIC INFO: To create the sky background I can recommend Annika’s tutorial video (which features another fab Crissy Armstrong image from Whimsy Stamps).  For the grass I can recommend Kim Costello’s tutorial post.

So now it’s time for you to continue the hop by hopping on over to Annika’s blog.

Thank you so much for hopping with us today!  Hope you enjoy the new release!

If you’re off shopping, don’t forget: US readers can find all the stamps and dies at Whimsy StampsUK/Europe readers will find Whimsy Stamps designs at Quixotic Paperie!

Have fun!
