*NEW* Whimsy Stamps Facebook Challenge 1

Happy Saturday everyone!! The Whimsy Stamps rubber design team has something fun and new planned this year! As all of us DT members are on Facebook we decided that it would be fun to have monthly Facebook challenge. Today is the very first challenge and I do hope you will join us! Here is the link to our Facebook Fan Page - Whimsy Stamps and Inspiration. We'd love to have you join our group if you aren't already a member.

To make it easy this month, our challenge is simply

Something New

We do ask that you  use a Whimsy Stamp for our Facebook challenges. You can find all the details here in our Facebook Fan Page. There is a fabulous prize up for grabs.

Of course we are sharing our creations on our blogs too. And here is what I made, using a new stamp set from Whimsy's Raindrop Echo Designs - Once upon a time.


I had some fun with inks on this one. To create my colored background I simply masked off the edges (using post it notes) of my white card stock, and applied ink using an ink applicator tool. Then I stamped a sentiment several times onto the background before removing my masks.
Then I stamped the fairy in black in, and the dragon in gray ink, and the butterfly duo. To finish it off I cut out the sentiment using Whimsy's slider 1 die, adhered it onto my card base and it was done. I did spritz it with some glimmer mist for a little sparkle, but it is completely invisible in the photo.

Would love to play along in the following challenges.
