Good morning everyone!  I hope your week has been going well and you have some great plans for the weekend.  It's Shelby with you today to bring you a little bit of inspiration for your Thursday.

I'm sure you were able to join us last week for the reveal of the awesome new stamps and dies!  

This adorable sweetie is from the brand spankin' new artist at Whimsy, Lizzy Love, and called Sally Hangs Her Heart on a String.  The sentiment is also from the new release and is by Denise Lynn called Simply Stitched Circles.

Here's a close up of Sally so you can see how sweet she really is.  I had a play around with some alcohol inks to create the background.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Asian Beauty

Hello Whimsy Fans I hope are you all well today
this is my first post as part of this amazing DT.

I would like to share with you lovely peeps 
a card I made for our blog hop she is called 
Asian Beauty, and she is Illustrated by the artist  Mi Ran.

I loved colouring this stamp, there was so much going on
it really pushed my colouring skills, she did take a few hours but 
I think she was well worth it .

I coloured her with Copics and made an Origami frame to
finish her. 

  Here is a tutorial on how to make the frame

Step 1:  Your start your frame with the basic Tea bag fold folding 
it corner to corner, you should then have a piece of paper thats 
divided into quarters.

Step 2:   You then turn the paper over so that the pattern is on the bottom
then fold in all of the corners to the middle, so you get a smaller square.

Step 3:  You then turn the paper over so than the corners you just folded 
are on the under side and repeat the process of folding your corners
 into the middle once more.

Step 4:  Just fold back the quarters in equal steps and voila 
the frame is finished,  just tuck your coloured image 
underneath the fold backs.

Meanwhile over at the Challenge blog Whimsy fans
if you joined us last month you will have to stop by and see if
your our lucky winner, and why not  
  join us again at Midday with our new challenge,
so why not  join in the fun.
 There is lots of amazing inspiration from 
my very talented team mates, and another  
 fabulous prize up for grabs.

Have a fun day my lovelies
