Design call for......

....Whimsy Stamps. This design call for February 2009 was posted last Saturday and you have until January 26th to take a shot for this marvellous stamp company. I love Denise's designs. They are great to colour, they're cute and, well, they're whimsical. Go check out the link above, it goes directly to the post with the rules for entering. You won't be sorry. Here's my card.

This duck looks 'lovesick' to me, at least for the purpose of this card. Being whimsical, it can look like whatever I want next time I ink it up. Today, he's lovesick. The sentiment is computer generated and says (in case you can't see it), "quackers" for you!. The hardware is Hodge Podge by SU. My card is 5-1/2" square and the base is Wild Wasabi. The DP is Stella Ruby by Basic Grey and I love it. Can you believe I found this bit in my scrap stash! I mounted it onto some corrugated paper scraps I also found in that drawer. The image was stamped onto my newest acquisition, Pure Luxury 120 lb. cardstock from Gina K. Designs. It's fabulous and the colour goes on like I'm spreading butter with a hot knife. It just melts onto the paper. Again, I placed some of the corrugated paper under the image as a mount. Next, I added some fibre by EK Success. I think the fibres add dimension and are a fun look for this card.

Well, here's my entry and, to anyone who reads this, please wish me luck. I would love to be a part of the Whimsy Stamps design group.
