Summer Friends at My Whimsical Little World

My Whimsical Little World is releasing some great summer digi stamps today.  There's three in total - Kody, Phoebe, and Marigold.  I made a set of cards using the characters, so let's jump right in!

First up.... Surfer Kody:

Followed by Phoebe:

And lastly, Marigold:

I colored the hair and skin of all three with Copics  - I wanted to try different color combos for each of them, by the time I colored Kody and Phoebe looking rather tan, I remembered some of us are 'blessed' with pale skin that burns rather easily, so I used a paler, pinker tone for Marigold. :D  After that, I grabbed a Basic Grey paper pad and paper pieced the rest of them.

Some of the digis come with their own background (like Phoebe - the shell and flower in the sand are part of her background!) which is great for coloring, but I like to add layers so I stamped a cloud background, watercolored some paper with distress ink for the waves and used this great sand-like embossing powder for the sand.

And I can't forget the insides :)  I printed the digis at a smaller size and adjusted the color to match the teal of the card stock that I was using, added some scraps of patterned paper and I end up with a cute set of cards.


Now you've seen what I came up with using these awesome digistamps, have a look at what some others have created:
