Wonderfully Whimsical

Happy Friday everyone! I can't believe another week has gone by. Where does the time go? The sun is shinning and it is suppose to be a great weather weekend though. Hopefully we can get out and enjoy it.
This month on the 15th is the release of Becky Oehlers first stamp set with Papertrey Ink called Wonderfully Whimsical. I am super excited about this set and can't wait to own it. These images are something that are definitely my style. Last month she shared a digital image for us to use during the Papertrey Anniversary release celebration. I have been eager to use it ever since but have not had the time until now. I finally got around to making a card with it this week though. This is what I came up with.

Everything about this card makes me happy! I can envision it in a baby's room. It also has a Suessical feeling to me too. I started by printing out the digital image on Gina K's pure luxury white cardstock then I colored the images in with Copic Sketch Markers. Next I cut a piece of patterned cardstock from the PTI Pretty Pastels Paper Pack and pieced it on the hill. When I was done with that I masked everything then airbrushed the background. After that I added white fun flock to the clouds to make them puffy,then I matted the finished piece on Hibiscus and Summer Sunrise Cardstock. Lastly I stamped and embossed the sentiment from The Boards and Beams set then I finished the card off with some machine stitching. I hope you enjoy this card as much as I do and it brings some happiness to your day as well!
That's it for now. I plan on making this months technique video this weekend and hope to be back to share that with you Tuesday. Until then I hope you have a great weekend and as always thanks for stopping by!
