Donkey & Friends

 Welcome to the Whimsy Stamps July Release Day Blog Hop!   Each month, Whimsy hosts a 3 day new release event with is a Sneak Peek Blog Hop on the day before the release, a Release Day Blog Hop on release day (today), and finally a Review Day Blog Hop the day after the release. Each blog hop has a prize of 2 new release stamps hidden somewhere along the way so be sure to leave comments as you make your way around the hop.  You have 24 hours to enter each prize draw with the winner’s being announced on the Whimsy blog after the 3 day event is over.
This release has a great selection of new rubber stamps and dies which are available to purchase right from the Whimsy store.  Take a peek at today's new release creations, by clicking on the links below: 

Don’t forget to stop by the Whimsy blog again tomorrow for our final July Release Blog Hop!  Thanks for stopping by and happy hopping!
Now, in case you are interested, here's some details about the card.  I used the cute and fun Donkey and Friends designed by Crissy and for the sentiment, I used the newly released Just My Type and the Tiny Shapes Dies (these are fabulous and I'm going to be using them a lot). The paper is from the Simple Stories Documented collection and the flowers are from my stash.  I sponged in the clouds with Tim Holtz's Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and then sprinkled some Aged Ivory Frantage around the edges.
Copics:
Donkey:  C7, C5, C3, C2, C0.  I dipped a loopy piece of cloth into some colorless blender and dabbed it over the grey to give it a little texture and hopefully make it look like fur.
Scarf:  R29, R27, R24, R22
Bird:  YR24, YR23, YR21
