No Embellishments...gasp!!

Oh Happy Saturday!!! I hope you all have a fantastic weekend planned...perhaps with a bit of stamping time?

We have another new challenge for you over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! This one is brought to us by my fellow guest designer Donna Wardle. She is challenging us to use NO EMBELLISHMENTS!! She would like to see your colouring skills shine through, so that means NO buttons, NO ribbons, No brads...bare bones stampers!! She has graciously allowed us to use "paper embellishments", so that opens up paper punches, die cuts, etc. So let's see that gorgeous colouring! Oh, but make sure to use a Kraftin' Kimmie image if you want to be eligible for the prize!

Today, I have used one of Kimmie's older images. This is Francesca. That hat is awesome! I wish I was funky enough to pull off wearing one just like that! lol I stamped Francesca on Neenah cardstock and coloured her up with Copic markers.

I also followed the sketch for Sketch Saturday. Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps is the sponsor over there, so make sure to enter in that one too. You'll be doubling your chances at winning some Kraftin' Kimmie goodies!


Stamps: Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps "Francesca"
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic markers
Paper: Neenah, Imaginesce, Bazzill
Tools: Martha Steward Punch, small flower punch
