A Serene Shy-Ann Whimsy DT

Evening friends! Got a Whimsy card to share with you today! I have got lots of things to show you that I've been making so I'll try and get organised and write my posts up for this week. How's your weekend been? Ours has been good-Ian's off at the moment having some holiday as his mum and step dad are visiting for the week and spending some time with Leo. Today we went to the seaside which was quite fun but the weather wasn't the best so we didn't venture for a dip in the sea!

Anyways...I've got a card featuring the beautiful Shy-Ann by Whimsy Stamps from the very fun and whimsical Mythical Collection. to show you!

I've coloured her in with my copics, added some yummy Shimmerz to her wings and then decided she needed something extra so I added lots of glossy accents. Love the effect of the glossy accents over the Shimmerz-really effective! I also added Shimmerz to the pretty Prima flowers available here. I've used the stunning Kioshi papers again from Basic Grey-just can't help myself-I think this must be one of my all time fave Basic grey pads. I also added some pretty tulle ribbon over the layers of the card. If you're in the UK and Europe over at Quixotic Paperie Elaine is having a sale on Whimsy stamps so do go check that out!

Here's a little close-up:~

For the design I followed the fab sketch over at Sketch Saturday this week and am also going to enter it at: Simon Says Challenge (things with wings), Practical Scrappers (ribbons, fibres and floss).

I've listed this card for sale in my etsy shop here if anyone's interested:) Well that's it from me-just a quick one today you'll be relieved to hear! I'll be doing my blog rounds this week to catch up with everyone. Thanks for stopping by and for any comments you leave me-I love hearing from you!
