I'd Follow You Anywhere - Whimsy



I'd Follow You Anywhere is the name of this Whimsy Stamp designed by Chrissy.  I love those little bears and penguins she does and this one is no exception.  What is super exciting for me is that my card was published in the 2nd issue of Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Magazine (hehehe... page 88!).  It is such an honour to be included in the magazine because it is jam packed with tutorials, interviews information and inspiration so be sure to check it out.  Grab a really big cup of coffee while you are at it because it is such a good read.  Then, go grab another big cup of coffee and check out the 1st issue - you will not be disappointed!  I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and used Copics to colour it.  I see I could have been more careful sponging my blue shading in around the bear but it's very hard to not overlap.... I know, I could do the masking thing but I am lazy and did not.  The paper is from a Basic Grey 6" x 6" paper pad called the Wassail collection.  The sentiment is one from the Winter Letter Seals set and the snowflakes are cut from glitter paper with Whimsy's Winter Jewel snowflake die.  The brads are another Ebay purchase and they are Vintage Brads by Creative Charms.
