Spring Boy and Girl

Hi, I'm Marsha and I'm a design team member for the Whimsy and Stars Studio blog.   I have this super cute image to share with you today, Spring Boy and Girl.   I actually used a summer color palette instead of a spring one - we missed spring this year and launched right into summer!

I used this fabulous sketch from Mojo Monday and went a little crazy using my Copic markers.  I love colors that "pop"!  I also love texture and lots of layers. 

Whimsy and Stars is having a blog hop on June 18th to introduce a new digital stamp release, the DT showcase and the introduction of our Summer DT additions.  We are so excited to share our creations and have you meet the new design team members!

Don't forget to go to the Whimsy and Stars Stamping blog and enter the June freebie challenge!  You can get all the details here.  Can't wait to see what you create!

Sunflower Teapot {A Card by Lesley}

Digital Stamp: Sunflower Teapot

Welcome to the Whimsy and Stars Studio stamping blog! Lesley here! I am a design team member for Whimsy and Stars Studio and I am super excited to share a card I made with Mabelle's adorable "Sunflower Teapot" Stamp set. 

<<<<<Isn't this image so sweet? 

I used a fun sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches for my card. 

The image is coloured with Copics and I added some pearls to the bottom of my card.

I used some light tan colours for the center of each sunflower and kept the rest of my design simple. I love that little bumble bee! 

Thank you for stopping by today!!! And be sure to link up a project with one of Mabelle's freebie images. CLICK HERE for all the information!! We can't wait to see what you create!
