Whimsy - Lakeside Sympathy

I'm bolstering my sympathy card collection although this card could be a masculine birthday or just a thinking of you.  It's quite lovely, isn't it?

I used masking (eg, a circle for the sun cut from a Whimsy Pierced and Stitched Circle Die), strips of paper and Distress Oxide Salty Ocean, Worn Lipstick, Ripe Persimmon, and Mustard Seed to create the background. I used Distress Ink Black Soot for the island as it's far darker than the DO version.

I then added a selection of the Whimsy Create a Scene Forest images.  There are trees and rocks and all sorts of things to create your own little nature picture.

I diecut the entire scene using one of the Wonky Stitched Rectangle Dies and the embossed sentiment using a Quick Strip.

I added a Build an Island bird then drew in the reflection below.  Btw, after sponging the DO, I decided to add a bit more vibrancy to the colors using my Copic airbrush. Puff, puff and done.

Whimsy - Sweet Mouse

Hello, sweetlings! I LOVE chocolate, dark preferred but in a pinch....  I think the Whimsy Candy Mouse is adorable. As an image.  I cannot imagine what I would do if I reached for a chocolate and found a mouse. Better alive than a carcass tho!  LOL.

I stamped the Curly Qs Background onto pink cardstock using Distress Oxide Vintage Photo and my MISTI. I then cut out a shaker aperture using a Pierced and Stitched Circle Die.  

The sentiment is a combo of Candy Mouse and Bold ABC. Frosted letters!

Be sure to check out the other fab offerings from Whimsy too!

SOSS - #151 Headache

And we're baaaaack! Did you miss us?  Of course, you did!

The first Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge for 2020 is #151 H for Headache.

I went to town on my background using lots of stencils, lots of ink and a little grunge paste. Getting messy is fun!

I colored the Katzelkraft Booly Dog with a really bright Zig pink. That dog's expression kills me, it's so fun and cute!
