Howdy happy campers! I hope you are had a great weekend! Today is my moms birthday and I'd wish her happy birthday here but I can't even get her to buy a cell phone let alone a computer. She refers to herself as technologically challenged : )
Today I am sharing my the last of my digi's release by Whimsy Stamps this month. Her name is Teddy:
I was shocked I got my Martha Stewart punches correct on the first try! Papers are again from K & Company. It's from one of those huge "best of" 12x12 pads and geesh, I love them all! 
Here's the copic color swatches:
Notice all of those BG's?!!! I could not get them to match my papers even though I used my chart. They were just too bright. Finally I added a layer of BG72 and that toned it down some. The white dots are white gel pen. 
I stamped and ink sprayed the background she is sitting on and I really liked the way it turned out.  Of course... it looks much better in real life, it's very "glimmery".
Here's a shot of the supplies to make my seam binding match my image and papers:

I just color them with the chisel end of my copic. Then I spritz it with water and crumble it into a tight little ball and dry it with my heat tool. I love the shabby chic look you get by doing that! This roll of seam binding was about $7 from and I've been using it forever and it doesn't even seem to have a dent in it yet! 
The sentiment is off of a Winnie the Pooh stamp. I did intend for it to be all catty wompus. A year ago those babies would have been lined up perfectly if I had to use a ruler to do it.. lol!  
Thanks so much for looking and I cannot wait to share next months images with you!!  Be looking for them on the 1st of August : )
