Whimsy Stamp's April Release! Mushroom Madness!

Happy weekend friends!
Today is Whimsy Stamp's mid month release and I know I sound like a broken record, but this release is fantastic! This new set called, Mushroom Mash Up, was so much fun to water color! I stamped it on water color paper with Tim Holtz Antique Linen ink.  I wanted a "no line" coloring look here.  I used Karin Brushmarkers to bring it to life.  Lots of layering of colors here!  The trick is to let each layer dry before applying the next color.  Once it was dry, I stamped the sentiment from the brand new Gnome Friends  set. (I will have a card soon using this new set!) I then splattered it with white acrylic paint.  
Some clear sequins and a teeny heart from the Sparkletz collection were added.  The background paper is dreamy isn't it? It is part of the new 6 x 6 paper pack called, Floral Impressions. 
I hope you liked today's card! Be sure to pop on over to Whimsy Stamps to see the full release! 
Have a great weekend!

Sending Sunshine!

Hello friends!
Today is my last day of spring break and I am back to school tomorrow.  
The weather has been in the 70's for the most part and I have so enjoyed the warmth and sunshine!
I have another card from the Whimsy April release.  I really adore this set, Sending Sunshine.  His little face is so dang cute! I did a no line coloring technique using Karin Brushmarkers.  I cut him out using the Pierced and Stitched Circle dies. 
I added additional flowers from the set and fussy cut them out.  The patterned paper is part of the new Slimline Paper Pack, Buttercup.  I love the sweet flowers of this paper! For a finishing touch I added a few water colored leaves from the Poppy Flower Die set, silk ribbon, and a few teeny hearts from the Sweetheart Sprinkletz collection. 

Thank you for stopping by today friends! If you haven't already checked out the April release from Whimsy, it is definitely worth checking out! So many cute things!
