I don't know what the weather is like in your part of the world but in The Netherlands it's VERY hot. As I'm typing this I'm melting, not optimal weather for crafting in my opinion. But I do have a project done :).
Tomorrow Whimsy Stamps will be releasing a fabulous new collection of stamps, dies and papers and today we are celebrating with a Sneak Peek blog hop, the products will be available in the Whimsy Stamps store (or through several resellers) tomorrow. I'll give you a list with the ladies participating in todays hop on the bottom of this post. And remember, we are hosting a 3-day new release event where we have a Sneak Peek Blog Hop (today), a Release Day Blog Hop (tomorrow) and a Review Day Blog Hop (the day after tomorrow). Each blog hop has a prize of 2 new release stamps hidden somewhere along the way and you have 24 hrs to enter each prize draw. And as you can see I'm part of todays hop. I'm featuring a brand new Wee Stamps image that is already available as a digital image in the Wee Stamps store HERE.
I decided to use some very old design paper by My Minds Eye as a base for this project. The line goes back to 2008 so you won't be able to find it in stores but it's very pretty and the pattern is actually glittery. I paired the paper with white and brownish red cardstock and gorgeous ivory and deep red flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. The pretty feathers were bought especially to go with this Indian lady, they are feathers of a pheasant and I bought them in a Dutch store HERE. I'm not sure where I got the berry like flower. The pearls are from Flourish with a Bling the gorgeous die is of course Spellbinder and I've used cheesecloth and handstiches. The sentiment was computer generated and is a text from the Disney movie Pocahontas. I thought this box would make a very pretty box to keep pencils or brushes in and I love that song.
