Sunday Sketch & Stamp #28: Whimsy Party Snail

Morning everyone!

Are you ready for a new challenge at Sunday Sketch & Stamp?  It's Maggie's turn to set the sketch for us this fortnight and she has given us a wonderful one that would be perfect to use up all those scraps we hoard:

You may have noticed that I've been making A6-size cards recently - well that's because I have now completely run out of my 6"x6" card blanks, and the online shop I purchase them from has been waiting for more stock from their supplier for over a month - eek!  I can make A6 cards as I have plenty of C6 envelopes and cello bags, but I don't have any envs or cellos left for my square cards so even if I make up my own card blanks I can't package them!!

I chose to use this adorable Whimsy digi stamp entitled 'Party Snail' for my card.  Did you know that Whimsy now has 39 digi stamps in stock (16 images and 23 sentiment sets)?  I've always been a rubbah girl myself, but I am definitely coming around to the idea of digis, and the one thing I absolutely love about them is the way you can resize them to the perfect size for your needs!

Sorry the colouring is not too good!  I decided to try out some SU Whisper White card with my Copics as it takes my inkjet printer ink better.  I know a lot of people are happy and use SU card with Copics, but I found it soaked up my Copic ink too much and I then found it difficult to blend properly!  So I'll stick to my Rymans card for now, LOL!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

1. Stampin' for the Weekend - A Card for a Male
2. Sundays With Crissy - Challenge #3 Favourite Things (Copics, DP, pearls, etc. LOL!)
3. PaperPlay Challenge 19 - Brown and ...?

Thanks for popping by!
