I bet you are just like me and coloring is sooo relaxing! I guess that is why we are crafters, right?!
The August release for Whimsy Stamps in now out and has a variety of sets from rainbows to Halloween and even Emo & goth! I went with the lighter side of things for this card!
I used some new and older sets of Whimsy Stamps products:
A slim line size card was perfect for the long rainbow and started my card by creating an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 base.
I inked a little smaller piece with squeezed lemonade & mustard seed for the bright yellow background. I then die cut the long rainbow, inked with a wide variety of oxide inks (I mean ALOT and will list them at the end!) and glued down.
Next, I stamped the crayon & row of crayons, colored with copic markers (again, I used ALOT of copics too and will list them at the end!), and fussy cut them out. I layered the rows of crayons and pop dotted them along the bottom and pop dotted the white crayon over the tip of the rainbow.
To finish the card, I stamped the sentiment & COLOR, coloring in the one with copics and stamping the other on vellum. Make sure to let the ink set on the vellum for at least 24 hours to not smear it!
I added a few stars and an array of sparkletz in rainbow colors (full list above). I added a little more shine with the wink of stella on the stars, crayons, and the word color.
I hope you take some time and visit the Whimsy Stamps FB page to see all the fabulous DT creations using the new August release!
