Fill my Heart - Special Guest - Dina Kowal

Hi all, Dina here with a guest post for Whimsy Stamps and I'm also combining my guest spot with hosting the MIX-ability challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers - did you know we've been doing these mixed media challenges for over 5 years already?  Thanks to Whimsy Stamps for letting me share in both places.


My challenge is to use patterned paper as the base for your focal panel, and create a mixed media project. The paper I used is from Whimsy Stamps' Christmas Cheer paper pack - I stamped right onto it with one of the images from the Fill My Heart clear set:

Fill My Heart clear set
I drew a light horizontal line across the paper, then used some QoR watercolor paint to sketch in some grass around the dog. When that was dry I used colored pencils to add some shading on and around the dog, and to add details to the scene.


My card is a tri-fold card... the base is 4-1/4" x 11", scored at 4-1/4", and 8-1/2", and then cut on the flap with a Stitched Border Die. To keep it closed, I attached a button with a brad so it would just overlap the edge of the flap when in place....


 but release the flap when it was rotated down.


Here's one more card I made using the same techniques, the Fill My Heart set (what a great pet set), and some retired Whimsy products.


Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Thanks for letting me share with you today!

Thanks for stopping by!

I love this cute image from Marina Fedotova - 'Flower Fairy'.



I colored the image using my prismacolor pencils and then fussy cut it out.
I used Versamark Watermark ink with the Whimsy Stamps Curly Flourish Stencil on the pink cardstock, and then heat embossed it with Ranger white embossing powder.
The sentiment set (now retired), papers and bakers twine are from my stash.
I finished off the card by popping up the flower fairy on foam dots.
