August Release Day at Whimsie Doodles!

Pin It It's new release day at Whimsie Doodles and to celebrate, we are having a little party with Lily Pad Cards! Visit each of our Doodlelicious Diva blogs (click their links in the left sidebar!!) today to see their card featuring our NEW August images and the Lily Pad color combo below...

 
 For my NEW release card I have used one of the two new adorable clock images - Circus Clock. It features a a fun circus tent, with some adorable animals.

To go along with the challenge, I only colored in parts of the image, making sure to use shades of brown and blue only. After I was done coloring, I went over the entire image in a very light tan, to mute the colors a bit more, and so the white cardstock the image was printed on, would blend in more.


Just the details… (1) Colored in just part of the image to match the color challenge, (2) Stamped the sentiment onto the same paper as the base and created a tab that peeked out from behind the image mat, (3) used some blue ribbon to create a faux bow.
