I hope you had a blessed Easter. Today I am sharing with you some exciting news. I am the Guest Designer for the month of April for Whimsy Stamps! I am so excited, humbled and honored. My e-buddy, Kim (Scraps of Faith), recommended me and the very sweet ladies over there were gracious enough to send me an invite. I have worked with WS images before for Ready, Set, Create Magazine and really loved the diverse selection.
Today I want to share with you a card I made using the Whimsy Animals Accessories Set 1. This set comes with the most cutest bee, worm, grass and beehive. I chose to play with the beehive and wanted to try a different kind of technique on it. I followed a tutorial from Mariska, but then changed it up ever so slightly (used a different glue and added glaze). I loved the way it turned out. This technique is super cool.
Here's my image...
As you can see I made the image 3D and added some Glassy Glaze to give it a shine. The honeycomb design in the background of the image is from Wax Fruit Company. The paper is Basic Grey and I stitched around the edges and finished it off with a bumblebee charm and some white pearl swirls. I used Spellbinders Circle diecuts and Beaded circle.
If you would like to try out Mariska 3D technique, you can get the Olba glue she uses from Whimsy Stamps! I didn't use this glue only because I was wanted to get my card done, but it is cool that it is now available to us here in the U.S. along with the syringes. I am going to continue to practice making images 3D...so keep on the look out for me to come. :-)
Thanks for looking and commenting!
