Whimsy Stamps - August Release Special Time for Tea Blog Hop

Hi everyone and welcome to the  Time For Tea Designs for Whimsy Stamps BLOG HOP!

 
Last month we announced the very exciting news that Jo Davies of Time For Tea Designs has joined the Whimsy Stamps family of artists! Jo’s debut release for Whimsy Stamps will be available to buy from the Whimsy store tomorrow (21 August 2013) along with the rest of the brand new August rubber and die release. In the lead up to the release, the Whimsy Stamps DT are excited to share with you an exclusive Time For Tea Designs for Whimsy Stamps BLOG HOP packed full of previews of these fabulous new stamps. This month we are releasing FOUR Time For Tea Designs for Whimsy Stamps rubber stamps:
Bookish                                   Heart Balloon

 FallLove                                              Windy Day
The hop starts today (Tuesday August 20th at 12.00PM EST), runs through the entire August release week, and ends on Friday August 23rd at 12.00PM EST.

 For this hop we have a GRAND PRIZE DRAW! One lucky hopper will WIN the entire new release of ALL FOUR TFTD STAMPS. We're not telling you at which blog the grand prize is being hosted, so be sure to complete the hop to find it!


Here is what I created, using the super cute stamp "Heart Ballon" from our new Illustrator -Time for Tea Designs. I used my copics for coloring. Coloring isn't as good as I like it to be, but that's ok, I am sure I too will get better with practice.


Colors used:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R20
Hair: E31, E33, E35, E37, E39, white prismacolor pencil
Dress: B0000, B00, B02
Balloon: R81, R83, R85, 0- colorless blender
Shoes: E31, E35, E37
Eyes: YG95

Here is another view.

The beautiful sentiment is one of the stamps from the new set "Birthday Greetings 2". Not sure if you can tell, but I have also stamped it onto the sand card stock behind the image, using linen distress ink.  I sentiment circle  needed something else, so I decided to use one of the stamps from the set "Itty Bitty Backgrounds" from SU (long retired) around the sentiment.
The beautiful dragonflies were diecut using Whimsy's new die "Dragonfly Border" which will be officially released tomorrow. It is soooo pretty! I added some stickles glitter to it for some sparkle. 
The designer paper in the background is from a 6x6 paper pack by Prima Marketing. Besides the dragonfly border I embellished with a little flower and rhinestone.
To finish it off I did some sewing, and then added some paper piercing to the right side.
