There is a new release of digital images going on at Whimsy Stamps right now, and if you have just arrived here randomly, you are in the middle of a blog hop! It is a shorter blog hop (so it won't take up so much of your time) with just nine places to hop to. I hope that encourages you to join in today!
Whimsy has added a new artist too! Melanie Jenkins, aka Meljen's Designs now has a collection of digital images exclusive to Whimsy! Kevin and Ann have also contributed to this new release 6 new images and 9 new sentiments.
I am really excited about Melanie's art. I found her by chance just a few weeks ago, and right away it was instant love! When I found out she was coming on board with Whimsy, I was pumped! Check out all the new digital designs by following this link.
If you have arrived here from Ann's blog, you are right on track! If you want to start at the beginning, Denise's blog is the place to go.
Denise has divided the Whimsy Design Team into two groups. The first group is doing the hop (that includes me!) and the second group is hosting a fun challenge! If you are interested in joining the second half of the team on the challenge, find the details at the Whimsy Blog HERE.
Of course there will be random draws for some yummy blog candy, so you get chances to win by leaving comments all along the blog hop, and also by joining in the challenge!
The blog hop runs until Tuesday May 11 at noon EST.
I had a good time drawing my niece Gracie. She is a real cutie pie, and I tried to capture her as best I could with this image. This is the dress she wore when she was a flower girl last fall at my nephew's wedding. Only her real dress was white. It was quite a site to see her march up the aisle, holding her little rose!
I call this image, "Gracie's Roses" and it is available now at Whimsy Stamps .
I printed Gracie onto smooth water colour paper, using my laser printer, and then heat set it. The laser printer heat sets a fine powder onto your paper, but when using thicker card stock or water colour paper, the heat doesn't get through the paper enough to emboss it completely. So when it comes off the printer, I have to go over it with my heat gun.
I water coloured Gracie with Twinkling H20's. If you have any questions about this card, e-mail me at my regular e-mail (on my watermark and on my profile page).
Next stop on the hop: Deb's blog. Hope you enjoy the rest of the hop! Thanks for your visit here today!
