Release day at Wee Stamps and Sneak Peak for Whimsy Stamps with sample

Hi everybody,

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.
Please meet Wyanet, she is one of two new Indian beauties to join the Wee family, the other girl is named Lomasi and you can find her when you do the Whimsy blog hop below or visit the Wee blog 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.
The side of the box. This was a cigar box that I've sended, painted white and then distressed with Frayed Burlap paint and Inka Golden paint (love the effect of that). The legs are Tim Holtz but I've spraypainted them with blog and gold to match the lock and the lock was bought at a craft fair and I have no idea what store sold them but they had a very good prize and I wish I had bought more :).
A close up of pretty Wyanet, her name actually means Beautiful in the Native American language :). I colored her with Copic Markers and I actually kept track of the markers for you :):
Hair, shoes and bottom parts of feathers: W9, W7, E77, E74
Face: E11, E00, E000, E0000 and R20 for her cheeks
Cream colored parts of clothes: E51, E50, E0000, W3, W1, W00, CB
Sand colored parts of feathers: E53, E51, E50, E0000
Brown colored parts of clothes: E59, E57, E55, E53
Red accents: R59, R56 (the red beads are Christmas Red liquid pearls with a coating of R59 when they were dry)
Golden accents and butterflies: E34, YR23, YR21, YR20
Rocks: E27, E15, E13, E11, E01
Shadows: W3, W1, W0, W00, CB

And the little pieces this lady was made of.

I hope you like my new project. Don't forget to check the Wee Stamps blog for the gorgeous creations the Wee Stamps Guest Designers made with the two new Indian ladies and then of course there is the Whimsy blog hop you don't want to miss as well. The other ladies you want to visit today are:
Good luck in the hop and have a great day everybody!!!

Hugs,
