Cafe de Paris – MIC & WS & LMM

Hi Everyone,

I feel terrible as I am so behind in getting creative lately! I finally had a chance to bring together a project to share for the latest collaboration Make it Crafty had with both Whimsy Stamps and Little Miss Muffet Stamps.

Now just so you know – there is still a small window of time for you to make a projects using a combination of our products for a chance to be in the Whimsy Magazine! You can find all the details HERE.

Here’s the little project I finished up!

The Cafe scene is a pre-made scene called – Cafe de Paris – but you can also create this scene yourself using the Paris Elements Collection where you receive all the little pieces to build up your own Paris building. 🙂

The scene was printed out at about 5″, quickly coloured with copics and I designed up this scene I thought it would be fun to add a touch of flowersoft to the ivy. I only have two colours and it’s the first time I have ever used them. LOL  Yellow would have been nice but you use what you got right!?!  hehe

I was playing around with colours on the dress of ‘Le Parfum des Roses’ available in RUBBER from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.

The greens I used were G000, G00, G02 and mixed with YG03 & YG25 to make it a little different. Pastel green mixed with a yellow green! Yes I am an odd one!!  haha

And then I decided to go with yellow for the rest of the dress to help bring it all together. Y11, Y15, Y18.

And of course to finish the project I stamped out the friendship sentiment and cut it out with the matching die from Whimsy Stamps.

And decorated it with the new fancy chipboard designed to coordinate with the Whimsy Notables range.
You can get the new chipboard from Make it Crafty but they are also available direct from Whimsy Stamps too!!

I have a scene printed out ready for me to video as I colour but the weather has been so humid here I have had trouble finding the right time to record without perspiration falling from my nose onto the paper! haha

I hope you like my touch of inspiration today. It was an absolute joy and pleasure to knock heads with Barbara, Denise & Ann to bring this collection to you all.

Big Aussie Squeezes!
