Strong Island

Welcome to the joint release blog hop!! Whimsy Stamps & Make it Crafty have come together to create a fun Urban Themed digi collection!

We have broken it in to TWO HOPS - HOP A Starts HERE & HOP B Starts HERE! You are currently on HOP A and should have arrived from the incredible DEBBIE!


Ann Vento has whipped up her magic and designed an incredible collection of funky wall sayings, city landscapes and of course a range of super cool street signs. Check out the Sentiments collection HERE!

Make it Crafty is trying something new offering all the different elements for you to build your own urban backdrop. Check out the Urban Street Collection HERE!

Then of course, what better characters to incorporate into such a scene than the fabulous KennyK rubber stamps available from Whimsy Stamps!


For my project I used Kenny K's Strong Island image and used Annika's project for my coloring guide and also used one of her hair colors too! Then after I had seen how Carole had colored her Urban background I had to copy the windows too. ;D Mine were blue before but I loved the black and had to change it.


I feel that this project is was isspired and put together completely by my friends ... I even had Zoe merged the Urban wall background for me. All I did was just the coloring. LOL Well I can't think of anything else to say ... so I hope you enjoy the project and both hops!


Our incredibly talented Design Teams have had a blast playing with all the different elements to bring you LOTS of inspiration so I hope you get a chance to see them all! Your next stop on HOP A is the fabulous MARLEY, but before you go make sure you leave a comment below!

You have until August 21st 8PM Australian QLD time to make your way through the hops!

  17. Barbara, you should have shown the blue windows too, it gave quite a different effect. But I did like it when you changed to black panes, I love that darker area in your card.
