Hanging In There

Well I hope Gonzalez doesn't get you this morning - it is certainly wet and windy here although I think we are going to get away with it more lightly than some areas.  Stay safe my friends.

So, I had this daft idea (nothing new there) - Whimsy Inspiration Blog have a DT Call out at the moment and I thought I might as well have a try for it.  Part of the blurb about what they are looking for says they are wanting "excellent colourists".  There are so many ultra-talented colourists out there that I might be up against it, but I'll give it a go.  Anyway, it gave me a great excuse to play with one of my favourite Whimsy stamps.
There are so many designs from Whimsy, by amazing artists, that I have not yet had the pleasure of being able to use so to get a place on the DT would allow me to broaden my range and it would be a super reason to have to sit down and colour once a week - I'm sure Toad would understand why he's been landed with the washing up, again.  Anyhoo, as I said, this is one of my favourites -

This is Fluffy Hanging In There from Whimsy Stamps/Wee Designs
I spent three evenings faffing about with his fur and Polychromos Pencils
The flowers and basket are done in Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers are Nitwits
Corner dies (that paper is purple, not black, I promse) from Whimsy
Woodware small retro flower punch
Pearls from stash
Sentiment from LOTV
Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

Good luck Squirrel. I cannot see why they wouldn't choose you as your coloring skills are magnifique.
I only wish I had half of them when I am trying to colour my parchment projects.
So sorry too to read about Vince. I send you a cyber hug.

Sarah said...

I think we can safely say that you most definitely fall into the "excellent colourists" category and if they don't pick you they are bonkers...so there!!
