Whimsy Stamps January Release Showcase Day 2

Hello and welcome to Day 2 of our January Rubber Die Release Showcase!

On Wednesday (18 January) Whimsy Stamps released this month's rubber designs and new shapeology dies. From then until 25 January the Whimsy Stamps DT and Special Guests are showcasing these fabulous new stamps and dies with a daily mini blog 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 Inspirations blog after 12.00PM EST on 25 January.

Here is what I created for today. I used the super cute Everything's Just Ducky stampLink from the Crissy Armstrong collection.

Photobucket

It's been colored using copic markers and derwent coloursoft pencils. The umbrella and wing were stamped twice and then adhered with dimensionals. Papers are from my ever growing stash. These particular ones are from Stampin Up (retired).

I embellished with some prima flowers, a flourish made with Whimsy's vines shapeology die, some brads, a button, ribbon and twine. Of course I had to add a little bit of glitter too.

The sentiment "Hello" is from a set by Crafter's Companion. The ticket that I stamped the sentiment onto is from the set "Celebrations mini tickets" by Whimsy Stamps. I love that the set includes a blank ticket with just the frame, so I can stamp any other smaller sentiment onto it. The ticket was cut out using the mini ticket shapology die, also from Whimsy Stamps.

I would love to enter this card to the following challenges:
