Today I am excited to share with you a new release from Whimsy Stamps called "Voo Doo Too." I have always had a particular interest in the Louisiana Vodou culture after visiting New Orleans many years ago. While Hollywood has given us the perception of this demonic, malevolent culture, it is a history rooted rich in slavery and cultural traditions. While commonly associated with death and ill will, the voo doo doll can also offer magical healing properties. Today these creepy-cute guys are offering nothing but love for you!
*A full supply list (with shopping links) is located at the end of this post.
The base of this slimline card measures 8 1/2" x 3 1/2". The base is made from Neenah Solar White smooth cardstock. Using the Slimline Windows die from Whimsy Stamps, I created the frame from gray cardstock. Behind the gray frame, I lined the background with a miscellaneous piece of lime green lined designer paper. In between some of the frames I stamped the "Voo Doo Too" sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I stamped the voo doo doll images in Tuxedo Memento Black ink and colored them with Copic markers. I added some highlights to the colored images using a white Uniball gel pen. I used my Scan and Cut 2 electronic cutting machine to cut the images out. I adhered the images to the card using foam adhesive. Lastly, I punched a few small hearts from red cardstock and floated them around the card, also using foam adhesive for added height.
I hope you like these mildly creepy cuties! Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
