I absolutely love Whipper Snapper rubber stamps and this one is my newest little cutie! I used Di's fab sketch as the starting point for my design, although i do always stamp and colour my image first and then i decide what papers to use to compliment the colours i've used. When this is done i then choose whether or not to use a sketch to inspire me :) Do you start with the sketch? how do you do yours?
My cute Turtle with Frog has been stamped with Archival Jet Black onto some watercolour paper, then i've coloured it in using several Adirondack colours. I squeeze my inkpads to get the colour onto the inside of the lid and then pick my colour up from there with my water brush. This method will work with good quality cardstock, but i find watercolour paper will always give a more pleasing result! ( i use Cotman 90lb cold pressed)
Some more gorgeous papers from Basic Grey 'Sugared' paired up with some DCWV, a few embellies from stash and a sentiment from HOTP.
Thanks for popping in! Have a great day, and wherever you are i hope you have not had too much snow!!! (only a little here in Bedford!)
