You are in for a treat today, because some of the design team members are using brand new images from the upcoming January Release!!! The official release will be January 10, 2010. The Krafty Girls will begin posting sneak peaks beginning on Friday this week...so keep your eyes on the blogs!Oh my goodness, I'm telling you that you are going to love the new images!! You will find pictures of the DT's projects for this week on the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge Blog, but make sure to stop by each of the Krafty Girl's personal blogs too...what a talented bunch of ladies!!
For my first card as a Krafty Girl Guest, I used one of the images from the new release!! This beautiful stamp is called Flower Fairy, and was drawn by none other than Crissy Armstrong!! I just adore how delicate the features on this fairy are...so pretty! I paired this image up with papers from the Basic Gray Porcelain collection and Bazzill Bling cardstock. I also used Labels 8 and Fancy Tags from Spellbinders. All the edges were inked with dark green. To finish it off, I added some machine stitching and rhinestones.
As always, I stamped the image on Neenah cardstock, and coloured with Copic markers. The pink and yellow segments on the fairy's wings are paper-pieced with Basic Gray Porcelain papers. I also used a piece of pink mottled paper from that collection to paper-piece the flower petals. However, I felt it looked a little "flat", so I used a combination of pink Copic markers to add depth by shading the petals. Now, you can't have a fairy without a little sparkle, so out came the Frosted Lace Stickles for her wings.
Ok...time to hop on over to the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge Blog to play along! Take note though! There will be one new rule starting today for the challenges. Anybody is welcome to play along!
