Whimsy May Release Review

Crissy Armstrong - Baby Ellie and Shape EZ
**************
Last Chance for my Die Candy here
**************
Today the Whimsy Inspirations blog is sharing some extra makes from the May Whimsy stamps release and this one is no exception!  I'm usually a ALL copics girl but I have found that I adore the water color of painting with Ranger Distress Inks.

I have some terrific water color paper by Strathmore Windpower 140lb 300 g/m that has always given me a very satisfying outcome and it is always extremely forgiving as well. I'm just a beginner with distress water color, so forgive me if today's little ditty has a few errors that I've "sorta" hidden !  But all in all, I was  pleased.  The bag took less than an hour after painting for about 45 minutes so the entire project is less than 2 hours!  I've made this for the perfect little shower gift bag and I adore the paper with the cute little safety pins.

 INSPIRATIONAL THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

Crying doesn’t indicate you’re weak. Since birth, it has always been a sign that you are, in fact, alive.
