Here is what I created for today, using the adorable Pum Kinnie Fairy stamp by Crissy Armstrong, along with the Autumn Seals sentiment set by Raindrop Echo, which are both available for 10% off right now at the Whimsy Stamps Store.


I had so much fun coloring her!! I used my derwent coloursoft pencils and some blending stumps dipped in baby oil to color her. Skin was colored with copics.
The papers are from Stampin Up (olive), Neenah (white), and the Designer Paper is from DVWV harvest stack. It is a simpler card, I wanted to keep the focus on the image. So I just added a large prima flower, some flourishes and stitched the edges. Glitter was added to the fairy wings and leaves.

Id' love to enter my card to the following challenges:


Remember that the entire new release is available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favorites. And all the new released products are on sale right now for 10% off while still in stock.

Nice layout and your coloring is so soft and lovely. Glitter looks great on the wings. Wonder what the leaves are saying to her.

Not sure if my comment showed up as I was hopping around looking. Your layout is great and love the soft coloring....do those leaves have glitter on them, great colors on them.
