Kraftin Kimmie Stamps Challenge #117



It's challenge day at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, and this week it's an awesome sketch:



Visit the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps blog for links to all the designers who have samples to share, and to link up your creation when you're ready to play along!

For my card, I've used a GORGEOUS peacock image from the new Tweets & Twitters 2. I colored in a blue and green palette with Copic markers, then inked and distressed the edges. The sentiment is die-cut into a tab using one of The Cat's Pajamas Circus Label  dies (trimmed down). I flipped and rotated the sketch to best work with my image.

I want to thank Kimmie and the whole Krafty Girls crew for the incredible opportunity to guest design with them this month. I've had an absolute blast! Thank you, KKS!

And thank you for visiting! Have a fantastic weekend. I'm headed out to an all-day crop and hope to make some substantial progress on my Project Life album. I'm not much of a "public" crafter, so when I filled out the registration form portion that asked who I wanted to sit with, I wanted to write an electrical outlet and leave it at that! LOL! It's not that I'm anti-social -- it's that I can't seem to mix social and productive! Wish me luck :)

Personally, I'm going to be sad to see February come to an end...you showed us some pretty amazing coloring with KKS! I've always admired the layers you add to your cards and then you blew me away with your copic coloring. Girl where have you been hiding with that! Sorry it's taken me all month to tell ya, but I've tagged each and every one of the cards you colored this month for inspiration! They are stunning!

Holy CROW! You are just AMAZING Amy!~ STUNNING coloring and I LOVE how you layer embellies so flawlessly!

LOL! When my crafty friend and I get together, not that often at all, we end up chatting more than we stamp or color. I don't think we've ever finished a single project at a get together!
Your peacock is so bright, fun, and beautiful! Gorgeous card Amy!

We have just returned from a vacation to the Bahamas, and I have a new found love for turquiose! I love this peacock!!! It reminds me of the water there. Oh how I miss the ocean.
