Whimsy Digi Image Release Party Hop!

Welcome to our fabulous Whimsy digi image release party! If you have hopped to me from Deb's blog, that is great. Please keep reading. However, if you have just stumbled across my little patch of the www without first checking out my fellow DT-ers work, you will need to go right back to Crissy's blog at the start of the hop.

Today we are showcasing a new digital collection with exclusive designs from Crissy Armstrong, Katie Sowa, and Ann Vento as well as some others from Whimsy's previous rubber stamp collections. All will be available for download upon completion of purchase. Each download will contain a zip file with 3 versions of the image, a JPEG, TIFF, and PNG all at 300dpi resolution. Images can be flipped, rotated, or resized to fit project needs.  

The card I have chosen to share with you uses one of Crissy's images and one of Ann's awesome sentiments, which are taylored to tie in with the image collections.


This image is appropriately titled 'Gift Horse' and I had so much fun colouring him in! I was also very brave and chopped up these DCWV papers which I've had for a couple of years but never managed to use before! For some reason, they never seemed to sit right together. I'm really pleased with how it all turned out this time though and even happier that I also managed to create some flower embellies from the papers too!

I'm going to enter this card in to a few challenges....
