Whimsy Stamps - September Digital Stamp Release Day 2!

Hello! We had a great day yesterday and yes, we did find a few goodies while out :0) This week's Me and My Space post will have to wait until next Sunday as the New Whimsy Release fell on the weekend. And that will give me a little time to clean off my new things and take photos. I am going to have to re-arrange a few things to fit in.. LOL  

Now the new release -

For my card today - I chose the one of Dana's Digi's new images. Happy Balloons! She is so perfect for a simple birthday card I think -

I colored with my Copics (colors below) I really enjoyed coloring her. And the balloons I decided to keep a little muted in colors... now can I be honest?? While coloring I made a BIG boo boo on the balloons... oops. I hated to throw it out and start all over! So I sat and stared at it for a while and then thought I would "save" it - I printed out a second one, colored the balloons again, then I colored her all in grey shadows. The I cut out my first girl, except for the balloons. I pop dotted her over the grey colored version, then glued her hand down to the balloon strings. She is then cut out with an oval Nestie, with the balloons cut out floating above.  For the pattern paper, I printed out a Whimsy Digital Paper :0) - This is from the new Collection called Flower Doodles. I liked it so much I decided to only use one of the patterns. Matted on black card stock then red onto a kraft card stock base. Whimsy Corner dies for the corners, Whimsy Ticket and three buttons. Simple card for me, but I like how it came out -

Here is my girl from the side so you can see the "shadow" effect with the grey coloring and pop dots.

Here are my Copic colors - 

Remember that the entire new release is available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favourites. Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to pop back to the Whimsy blog tomorrow for more new release creations! 

And make sure to visit the DT that are showing off more new releases.

So what do you have up for today? Pretty normal Sunday for us I think... breakfast with the locals - then possibly a walk through the flea market. Sometimes you find things, most of the time not much. But it is great exercise! Then home to work on a few projects around the house. Hope you have something fun for your day...

Thanks for popping in -
HUGS and-
