Whimsy's AVT showcase blog hop

Hi Everyone and Welcome to our special Ashlan Valor Tangles 
Showcase blog hop!!!! 
Today we are showcasing a collection of beautifully hand drawn Tangles 
by artist Lori St. Clair. 

Tangles are a relaxing, contemplative, non-objective art form that permits 
a viewer to enjoy every opportunity for imagination and inspiration to 
swell as the image before them unfolds.You discover what a creative 
moment holds when you share in the process of letting it lead your 
imagination through the intimate details it possesses. 
Tangles touch each individual personally. Share one with someone you 
want to touch in an extraordinary way. To quote Lewis Carroll: “When 
you are describing, a shape, or sound, or tint; Don’t state the matter 
plainly, but put it in a hint; And learn to look at all things, with a sort of 
mental squint.” 

All Whimsy Stamps digital images are 300dpi for high print quality.You 
can re-size, flip, or rotate to fit your own project To find all of Ashlan 
Valor Tangles images please visit the Whimsy Stamps Store 

Don't forget to leave comments along the way as there will be 2 mystery 
DT Members who will each be choosing a winner from the comments left 
on their hop posts! 

These winners will each win an Ashlan Valor Tangles digital image of 
their choice. The Grand Prize winner of the hop will be chosen from the 
very last stop, which is Valou 

This winner will receive all 5 of the Ashlan Valor Tangles digital stamps 
of their choice from the Whimsy Stamps Store 

The hop will run for 1 week and end on Friday 14th March at 12 Noon 
EST, when the lucky winners will be announced on the Whimsy 
Inspirations Blog.

This is my AVT creation using the digital image Stars n Balls.
Its a fun image with a lot of dimension and great to work with. I added the sentiment from Whimsy's Everyday Moments rubber stamp set and now I have a wonderful achievement card.

Supplies: Whimsy Stamp set Everyday Sentiments, Bo Bunny patterned paper, Bazzill cardstock, Floral Burst spellbinder, Miscellaneous bling, Stardust stickles.

Below is a complete list of the hop in case you get lost along the way
