I’m excited to share a new release from Whimsy Stamps featuring Dustin Pike’s fun animal characters. This is On a Roll and I colored two of the three animals from the set – so all together you have the giraffe, flamingo and panda. I was also able to use a great combination of tools to create this card including the Awesome Large Word die and Twinkle stencil. To try and keep the card simple, I layered it on a card front with a colored layer in-between. I think these two look like they’re having so much fun and I wish I was following them on my bike. 😉
This stamp is titled “Dragon Water Fun” but I’m not so sure how much Dudley is having here. Maybe it’s that time of month again? (Sure, Dudley can be a girl!) Or maybe it’s a reflection of how we feel sometimes when everyone around us is happy; our personal trials of life. Either way, it was an idea that came to my mind as soon as I saw the stamp and I knew I had to color it. Because everyday can’t be all rainbows and unicorns even when they’re visible.
I’ve been studying Annabel Haines‘ style on fur because she does an incredible job. In fact, she does amazing on all her projects with added textures and details. So over the years, I’ve been working up the courage to give it a try. I practice here and there but this was the first time I’ve gone full furry on an image. It was good first attempt but I still have more to learn. The image I used was a retired Scaredy Cat rubber stamp which is now available in the Going Catty clear set by Whimsy Stamps.
Surprise – you may think this is TP Dudley (the freebie from Whimsy Stamps) but that Dudley is all tied up with toilet paper. No, this is Mrs. Dudley! She’s all tied up in her latest quilting project. And with all the time she has on her hands, she’s not complaining.
This is Toilet Paper Dudley by Dustin Pike which is a freebie at Whimsy Stamps and was one that I had to join in coloring him. I think the hardest part was to decide what color scheme. I’ve been inspired to use yellow so that seemed to be the natural choice.
I’ve had my eye on this cutie for a while and was thrilled to be able to color her up. This is Wyanet (Beautiful) from Whimsy Stamps and in the background is Path in the Woods, also by Whimsy Stamps. I thought with her sitting on the cliff ledge she would be perfect to look over all of the forest.
