Whimsy review with Summer Fairy from Wee Stamps

Hi everybody!!
Today is review day at Whimsy stamps, on the Whimsy blog you'll see a couple of gorgeous cards created by the Design Team with the products that were released in August. Since I am a Special Guest Designer I don't have to attend but I can if I want to and since I hadn't inked up Sylvia Zet's gorgeous Summer Fairy yet I really wanted to join :).
Isn't she gorgeous? I love Sylvia's Fiaries and this one is no exception, that hair is just so pretty and those gorgeous wings... sigh.... The pretty shape of the card is a Whimsy Stamps die, the Double Scallop Doily Die, you can use this behind an image of course or use just part of it but I decided to punch out two of them, partly glue them together and create a card with them. I have colored the Summer Fairy to match a new paper pad I had bought from Lili of the Valley stamps, this one is called Promises and they are released by NitWit Collections. I had a little trouble matching the purple color in the paper, I did a bit of practicing before I got the color right, the combination I end up using was V04, BV02, V12, BV0000, V0000. The V colors have more red in them and the BV colors more blue, together they make for the perfect color to match the design paper. Love blending with my Copic Markers. The Cherry Blossom flowers are by Wild Orchid Crafts and the rose is by Prima. The white ribbon is also from Wild Orchid Crafts and the button is from stash. The sentiment is from a company that no longer excists, Elzybells, this is actually the stamp that made me choose the name for my blog, I'm thinking of doing a makeover of my blog with this new card :). I'd love to have a card with one of Sylvia's stamps on the front.
This is a close up of the Copic colored and 3D paper pieced image. It looks a bit blurry but I think it's sharper when you click on the image.
 A side view of the card so you can see the shape of the card and the 3D a bit better. I don't know if you can see but I have attached a circle card to the inside of both the punched double scalloped shapes. I made this inside card using a nestabilitie and a folded piece of paper. I cut out the circle making sure the folded line was a little bit outside of the circle nestabilitie. I did glue the top part of the double scalloped shapes together.
And the little pieces for the non-believers, hihihhi.

Hope you like my little simple card. Be sure to check the Whimsy Stamps blog for more gorgeous reviews of the August release!!

I'm entering this card into the current challenge at the Fashionista Challenge blog which is a card for a child.

Huggies ;),

  19. OMG Mariska!Is it possible i didn't know your blog? What a lapse!

    Your creations are STUNNING: your colouring is wonderful and all that patience with this 3D tecnique! I practiced decoupage 3d some time ago and i know what i'm talking about!(and i didn't color all the pieces!) But the result pays off, really impressive!

    Thank you very much for your nice comment, is one of the most beautiful I have ever received, you made my day!

    Hugs, Franz.
