New Digi's Out

Hello everyone!  I am so glad you stopped by today.  I have some new digi's released at Whimsy Stamps this month and they are available right now.  In fact you have landed in the middle of the blog hop for Whimsy!  The Whimsy Digi Design Team has some lovely creations to share with you today, so I encourage you to hop from blog to blog taking in all the beauty they have created.  Along the way, there is blog candy to be won, so as you hop  be sure to leave a comment on everyone's post so that you will have a chance of winning.  Two random blogs will be offering a free digi to one lucky winner.  Then on the last stop of the hop, there's a grand prize up for grabs - the winner will get their choice of five digi images from Whimsy Stamps AND a chance to use those images in a guest spot on the Whimsy DT for the entire month of April!  You have from now til Friday April 8th at noon to complete the hop and be eligible for blog candy!
If you have landed here from Dawn's blog you're right on track.  If you wish to start at the beginning of the hop, go to the Whimsy Inspirations Blog, where they have a complete list of the hop links for your convenience. 
 This is "Lilly Filly".  She comes separately from the background.  And when you buy her, you get two images for the price of one - one with her spots and one without.  I thought it would be convenient for those who didn't want the added detail of spots.  I put her in the background I created called, "Meadow Background" by merging the two images together in Photoshop.  I printed the image onto watercolour paper with a laser printer, heat set, and coloured it with my Tombow Pens which are water based, and spread the ink with water on a paintbrush.  I explain this colouring method fully in my Water Colour tutorials which are linked just under my blog banner at the top of this page.   
One additional thing I did was to paint white highlights using white acrylic paint.  I don't normally do that when I water colour, but I had lost some of the white of the paper by overpainting, and so I had to get them back with white paint.  It is a method I can use when I make that mistake. 
For my card, I made the yellowish layer by printing off Ann's digital sentiment from the "New Beginnings" set onto white card from Staples.  I then sponged on "Scattered Straw" and "Tea Dye" Distress Inks for some colour, then tore the edges.  The little white flourish on the right is from the "Fleur de Lis" die by Spellbinders.  The darker blue background paper is by Basic Grey.
I got into quite a drawing roll this time around and am really happy with what I have to share with you today.  These are my new digital images. Just click on any that you are interested in and it will take you right to their listing in the Whimsy store:

From here, hop along to Debbie's blog to see what she has created for your enjoyment! 
Thank you for stopping by today!
