Whimsy Stamps May New Release - Day 3 Inspiration! (Final Day!)

Welcome back friends!
Today is the final day, DAY 3, of the Whimsy Stamps (Clearly Whimsy Stamps edition) May NEW RELEASE!
Starting with Monday, May 9th, along with yesterday and today, I am sharing inspiration with you for each new clear stamp set and Shapeology craft dies that are being released this month which will be available for purchase at the Whimsy Stamps store starting TODAY!!!!  
Yay!  Time to go shopping!!!

In case you may have missed any of my prior inspiration posts:

Monday, May 9th Post (Day 1 inspiration) - "Playful Pups" + "Additions set", "From a Friend" and "Hand Stitched Border" dies

Tuesday, May 10th Post (Day 2 inspiration) - "Punny Messages", "Sweetest Birthday" and Shapeology "Shaker Builder" die set. 

For today's inspiration, it's a "Designer's Choice" to create something using any of the May's New Release products.  I wanted to try out another one of those cute pups again for my design:
So I decided to create a bit of a story board here.  As you can see, the pup was getting a bit 'ruff' with his bunny and knocked over the flower pot as you can see from the trailing foot prints! LOL!  Then there is evidence of the dirt on portions of his bunny as well!
He didn't mean it and he's sorry of course!  :)

To make the grassy stitched lines, I have used the Whimsy Stamps Shapeology Stitched Border dies and for the "thought/speech" bubble, I have also used the WS Speech Bubble Border die to emboss with black for the sentiment at the top.  I also stamped a couple more of those foot prints along the side of the sentiment.

The sky for both portions was done with the distress inks and foam blending tool.  I have used a retired cloud die from Whimsy Stamps to add a couple of clouds to the sky behind the pup.  Everything was colored with my Copic markers.  The pup and bunny were fussy cut and popped out on the design with foam tape.  I cut a portion of the bunny's hand so it looked like it was caught in the pup's mouth.

Here's another view of the card:
Here you can see how I've colored the pup along with the coloring of the "dirt" on the bunny.  The sentiment on the speech bubble was stamped with black pigment ink and embossed with clear EP.

So I hope you've enjoyed all of my inspiration during this New Release week!
