Wee Snippet & Mystic for Whimsy Stamps

Hello friends!  I hope you are having a wonderful week so far!  Thank you for all of your kind comments and wishes from my posts last week!  I really appreciate it so much!

Today I have a creation to share with you using a wonderful magical/mystical image from Whimsy Stamps:

Vicki-WeeSnippetMystic-June11

I have used this gorgeous image called Wee Snippet & Mystic by Crissy Armstrong.  This was previously released as a rubber stamp, but this month it has become available in digital format too! (Click HERE to see the June Digial release.)

I sort of let the colors of the card pull together after I had colored in the image and then I went from there.  I thought that this image would look nice with a woodgrain theme, so I’ve also taken some of the Whimsy Stamps Rustic Wood and Brick digi papers collection and cut a section and layered it with some purple cardstock for behind the image panel.  I had some pretty green colored woodgrain papers with flowers on it from my stash and used that for the background of the card design which was mounted over an A2 sized top folding card base.  The white woodgrain panel has some metallic purple ribbon wrapped around it that I’ve attached to the background of the card.

I’ve used a die to cut some edging accents for the sides of the image panel with the same color of cardstock as the background layer.  I popped this up over the card design with some craft foam.  I then added a stitched banner piece at the top right of the card design that hung over the image panel and then I have die cut some flowers from the Whimsy Stamps No-See All Seasons Tree Die set, sponged some ink around the edges and added them to the design.  I took some Purple Nuvo Crystal Drops and added a dot to the center of each one.  I’ve also taken a sentiment from an older Whimsy Stamps set and stamped it in black in the bottom corner of the card.

Here’s a closer view of the coloring on the image.  I’ve used the Copic markers listed below to color with and then used a few gel pens to add details.  I took a glue pen and went over the horn on the unicorn as well as along the edges of the die cut image panel and sprinkled on some clear glitter.  Before attaching the glitter along the edges of the image panel, I used an ink foam blending tool and some Wilted Violet distress ink over it.

  • Wee Snippet’s outfit/flower and Mystic’s saddle/reins/horn – V17, V15, V12, YG13, YG11, BG10, BG000 (gel pens for dotted accents)
  • Wee Snippets’s hair – Y11, Y15, Y17, E31

I tried to incorporate everything that I thought would bring out the “magical” essance of this image from the several layers with the paper, the glitter and metallic ribbon too.  I hope you’ve enjoyed my card today and I really appreciate you stopping by!  I’ll see you again soon!
