Card #9 - Kraftin' Kimmie and Paper Sundaes



Paper Sundaes had a sketch this week that I really liked, and I thought it would be perfect to use my new Kraftin' Kimmie stamp! Also, at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, they would like to see a creation with "distressing", so I was happy to distress my papers with my handy little CTMH edge distressor. As I've mentioned before, I don't have a whole lot of Copic markers, so I have to choose my paper carefully if I want my colouring to match. This scrap of Basic Grey left over from a LO a couple of posts ago matched pretty nicely, if I do say so myself. I made some booboos with my stamping and colouring, so I had to trim my fairy and hummingbird out. I made a mistake on her face (live and learn) which I see every time I look at it, but I really like how her wings turned out, so I guess I feel okay with the final result. Anyway, Ailis is invited to a Barbie tea party birthday party (try saying that 10 x fast!), so I said she could have this card to give to her little friend. I won't have to live with my mistakes long, haha! Looking forward to the weekend, hopefully the weather holds up! Now to catch up on all your posts! Big hugs, Roxy.

Supplies: CTMH cardstock, Prisma Glitter, and brads, Basic Grey pp, Kraftin' Kimmie stamp, Copic markers, Memento ink, Ranger Glossy Accents

  2. I like this a lot. You did a great job colouring the hair. I suck at colouring, lol. Especially love the wings, they look like crushed glass.

  5. She looks fabulous Rox!!! Mistakes happen, that's how we learn (: Congrats on winning at KKS!!! You have another stamp to add to your collection (: Sorry I've been MIA!!! I looked at posts when I could but I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to get caught up on commenting ): We're home from camp now so hopefully I'll have more time to check out blogs!
    The fairy you used is the starting point Annie used when she designed my tattoo for me (: She was definitely my fav from that release.
