Whimsy Stamps Challenge - Punches and Edgers

Hello - Wednesday and that is the Whimsy Stamps Challenge - And today's challenge is to pull out those punches and border edgers and have some fun! I know we all have a whole lot of those right! I seriously do not want to count mine. Might freak me out.. and I know it would Hubby. :0)

So lets just get right to my card ok?

I chose one of Lia Stampz new images "Faerie Dandelion" - she reminds me of a vintage Victorian image.

 I colored with Copics. (colors shown below) And then I went back and did LOTS of stickles. I cut her out with a circle Nestie, after cutting out her foot, the stem and a couple of seeds. I like doing this on images, really makes them have more depth. Well as much depth as I can see... Snort Snort.. ha! lol sorry.. my own little personal eye joke there. Back to serious. I colored the background with BG70 - I love how that came out, really does give that soft old fashioned look.

Here is the card -

I used Prima Songbird paper pad for my papers. Really pretty papers.  My punch Border Edger for the challenge I used Fiskars Double Dot Scalloped Border Punch. I am a total dork.. my card when closed the back is wider than the front. The inside of the card is the dusty pink card stock so the edge of the front shows off with the darker color behind it. But when I photographed it I totally forgot about it. Sorry.. but it does show pretty ok? My corners are from Whimsy, love the corner die set. The sentiment is also from Whimsy, with its matching die. Notables 4 I believe. My pearls are not pearls. They are the Viva Decor Cream Pearl pen. Mine is going down quick, think I better have more on my "need" list to order.

Inside is simple with left over papers.

Here is my photo of my Copics used -



Hope you will now pop over to the Whimsy Stamps Inspiration Challenge - great DT cards. And then join us ok? Remember you don't have to use Whimsy Stamps (we love it when you do though)

Have a great Wednesday... today we are sticking around the house. Doing some cleaning, mowing and working on a few projects around here. We went Antiquing yesterday in a few of the small towns. And  had a lot of fun, but there are chores to be done today. Then maybe we can play another day this week. :0)

Hope you have a wonderful day -
HUGS and
