CAS for Whimsy....

Morning!! I am thrilled to be Guest Designer over at Whimsy Inspirational Challenges today :)
The theme this week is......
'Summer Fun'
and as GD I got to choose a digi to work with :) I chose this fab image called 'Icecream Love' from the Lia Stampz range over at the Whimsy store.
Perfect image for the summer :) She looks like she is really enjoying her neopolitan icecream :)

I have coloured the image as always with promarkers and prismas and I have gone for a CAS look to let the image shine.......just adding a Penny Black sentiment and some pink gems to finish :)

Thanks for looking xx

Sweet Hedgie...

A sweet Hedgie card today......not my usual Penny Black but a Sugar Nellie release
I'm still not sure on the colouring?? but I did enjoy colouring in the image with my promarkers and prismas and it would be a shame not to use it :) Love the little mouse friend!!
I have used scraps of spotty paper from my scrap box and made the flowers with my retro flower punches.

I am entering the following challenges with my card ~
PaperTakeWeekly - All Things Girlie....
Charisma Cardz #28 - Favourite Animal.....I love hedgies :)
Fab n Funky #130 - Make your own flowers....

I've been playing with the free Whimsy stamps from Papercraft Essentials again......this time using this lovely fairy stamp, so pretty!
I have coloured the image with promarkers adding prismas for shading all in shades of lilac :) 
The lilac papers are all from Papermania.....a couple of different ranges I think??
Flowers and pearls from my stash and I have also used my new fancy corner die from Whimsy.....I kept seeing this die around blogland and I had to have it!!! A fab set of 4 corner dies at a great price :)

I am entering Challenge #47 over at Whimsy Inspirational Challenges ~ Monochromatic....

Dont forget Penny Black Saturday is now monthly :) There's still plenty of time to take part in the blog hop currently running for lots of chances to win some fabulous prizes :) Check out my Penny Black post below for info and candy :)
