Kraftin' Kimmie September Sneak Peeks: Round 2!!

(I have THREE posts scheduled for today! LOL...hope you're not sick of me yet! Feel free to scroll back for posts from The Town Scrapper and from Wags 'n Whiskers!) there a limit on number of blog posts you're allowed to have in one day??? It's been a busy morning here on my blog, as I had to have three posts go live at different times. Thank goodness Blogger allows us to schedule our posts!

As mentioned, this is my third post for today, and it is for the upcoming September release at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps on this Sunday!! As always, Kimmie has a great lineup of brand new stamps and I know you're going to love each and every one! Yesterday, I showed you a card featuring two of the new stamps by artist Steven Leary. Today, I have another cutie-patootie Miles the Mouse stamp to show you...introducing "Cornucopia Miles"!

Our little pal Miles certainly seems to love his food...just look at that belly! I stamped the image on Neenah cardstock and coloured him with Copic markers. I used a cross-hatching stroke to give a bit of texture to the cornucopia. The papers are from The Paper Loft. I love these patterns and thought I'd just go with a very clean and simple layout so as not to cover up those fabulous fall leaves. The paper edges were all sponged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink, and the little pearls are from the dollar store. Oh, and that great little "Happy Feasting!" sentiment is part of the brand new "Thankful Sentiments" set that will also be released this Sunday!

Copics: Miles: E50, E41, E42, E43, E47 Cornucopia: E50, E31, E33, E35, E37, E25, E59 Apples: R17, R59, YR31, YG00, YG11, YG28 Additional shading done with Conte crayons (after all colouring with Copics was complete...very important so that you do not ruin your marker nibs!)

You know the drill stampers...hop on over to the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Blog for links to the sneak peeks for today by the other Krafty Girls and our wonderfully talented Krafty Guests.

I hope to see you back tomorrow for our weekly challenge. I'll have another sneak peek featuring one of Kimmie's brand new Annie Rodrigue stamps. Then of course, we have our release day Blog Hop planned for this Sunday!

Have a wonderful Friday, and thanks for stopping by!

When you use the Crayon is that what makes the dark, dark coloring? Like in Kimmie the Princess, it looks almost like you used a Warm or Cool Black color. Or, how did you do that?

Thanks so really should do a tutorial, because your coloring is awesome.

Thanks for sharing,
