Miles The Mouse (Kraftin' Kimmie June Previews Day 2)

Good morning! Ready for another sneak peek of the June release for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps?? There is a lot going on this month...a brand new Summer Mermaid Stamp Kit and four stamps featuring a new face at Kraftin' Kimmie's. We are helping Kimmie introduce her newest artist Steven Leary and the line of stamps featuring his character "Miles The Mouse"! Miles will be showing up in all kinds of situations that are sure to put a smile on your face. This month, Miles is into all sorts of "beachy" antics!

This is Sandcastle Miles....quite the architect, no? These little guys are so much fun to colour up. I have a "thing" for smaller cards...I just love them! They are perfect for slipping into little gifts, lunchbags, purses....just a great way to let somebody know you're thinking of them. However, many stamps are just too big to make them. Enter Miles The Mouse! I wanted to stick with a fuss-free layout, that way this card would be suitable for a boy or a girl.


I coloured Miles with Copic markers and added in a sponged sky created with a hand-cut template. His little shovel was also given a coat of Glossy Accents. Hmmm...wouldn't a set of little Miles The Mouse notecards make a fantastic gift?? Think I'll have to put that on my to-do list, lol.




Not too much longer to wait stampers...you will be able to purchase all of the June release stamps on Sunday June 13, 2010!!

I'll be back tomorrow with a preview of another gorgeous mermaid from Kimmie's Summer Mermaid Stamp Kit!

Blessings,

Melanie

Wow! The colouring of your sand is just gorgeous! Love all the colours of dots you did to give it so much depth. Yet another technique you'll have to share on Saturday....*giggle*.
