Monthly Inspiration by Arjita

Hi friends,
The October release at Whimsy Stamps is full of super adorable and fun images. I love this elf who is trying to balance the gift boxes and was an absolute fun to colour.
This card was coloured in almost the same way as I did the previous one. For this card I printed the image on Arches cold press paper and coloured it using my favorite Mijello Mission Gold watercolours.



The colours are very vibarant and look stunning. I used a sharp pair of scissors to fussy cut the image and used some foam tape to stick it on the the watercolored background. I hope you like this cute card using Whimsy Stamps.


Hugs

Christmas Shaker Tags


Hi Whimsy friends, it's Iris here! Today I want to share a set of Christmas Shaker Tags. This was one of my projects from the class I was teaching at the Whimsy Craft Retreat early October.




To create the tags I used the largest of the Stitched Tag dies and the smallest die from the Handstitched Nested RectanglesInstead of foam tape I cut a tag frame from fun foam and adhered it with score tape. I used the  Oh What Fun clear set and matching Oh What Fun dies to create the stamped elements and sentiments. Coloring was done with Copics.
I also glued some sequins from the filling to the tag background. This way if the tags are standing upright they are not all falling down to the bottom of the tag. There will always be some visible through the shaker window.

Here are the Whimsy Products I used:

Kitten Kindness Coloring Tutorial by Melissa


Hi everyone! Melissa here to share with you a simple coloring tutorial for these sweet kitties from Whimsy Stamps by Lee Holland called Kitten Kindness.  I wanted to show you a few coloring techniques for coloring fur.  Three to be exact; tiger stripes, calico and textured fur.  Any of these can be used on other animals too.  A number of these techniques you might already know, but I do give you a few hints how to have the best outcome.


You will need a few coloring tools.  If you are an alcohol marker user, pick two to three colors of the same color family for each technique as well as some alcohol such as Colorless Blender from Copic.  If you use colored pencils I would pick two to three colors for each technique as well and gamsol or some other blender solution.

I did want to include a list of colors used for the fur:
Gray/Blacks:  C00, C1, C3, C5, C7, 100
Browns:  E70, E71, E74
Orange:  YR12, YR15, YR18

In the beginning of the video I show you how I use acetate to place my rubber stamps.  Often it's hard to see the correct position.  I did not include that after having the correct placement on the acetate to go ahead and stamp on the paper.  Then I do the sentiment the same.

Please make sure to like the video and follow my YouTube channel as I'll be doing more Whimsy Stamp tutorials in the future.
