Whimsy Haven Blog Hop

Welcome to the Wednesday Whimsy Haven Blog Hop! If you've arrived from JoAnn's wonderful blog then you're right on track, if you're just arriving, please begin the hop at Whimsy Haven!



My first card uses today's Whimsy Haven special $1.00 stamp Wind In My Sails! When I saw this image I knew I wanted to play with the cracked glass technique! You can check out Beate's tutorial on the Splitcoast forum here for the tutorial on cracked glass. I also used my Copic Airbrush around the image before applying Utee. Products used: Recollections and Neenah cs, K& Co. dp, canvas fabric, Copic markers, Versamark, Utee, Distress inks, Nestabilties, machine stitching, Kaiser pearls and homemade crinkle ribbon (doesn't look so crinkly here).



My next card uses the Palm Tree images from today's Whimsy Haven $2.00 special Summertime set!! I adore this set too and there are so many fun images to play with! I had to play around with my Copic Airbrush system again and love how this turned out! Products used: Neenah and Bazzill cs, K & Co. dp, Nestabilties, Distress inks and twine.



My final card for today's hop uses the flower image from today's Whimsy Haven $2.00 special Summertime set!! Yep, played with my airbrush again for my background :)!! Products used: SU and Neenah cs, Copic Markers, October Afternoon dp, EK Success punch, u/k lace and button, DMC floss, twine, Nestabilities and Distress inks.

I'm your last stop on the hop! I hope you enjoyed all of the wonderful creations by the Whimsy Haven DT today! Don't forget to head back to Whimsy Haven to shop and pick up the incredible deals of the day!
