You're Nifty!!! (February Krafty Peeks...Day Three!!)

Welcome to round three of the February previews for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!! Today, we get to show you some of the soon-to-be released stamps by Krafty Artist Annie Rodrigue!! February brings us some groovy retro characters....think Happy Days and Grease!!! (lol...I may have even squealed a bit when I saw these ones!!)

For my card today, I combined two fabulous new characters...meet "Judy" and "Richie"!! I thought these two would be adorable paired together. Just picture them at the local diner...Richie spies gorgeous Judy in her teeny shorts and sipping Cherry Coke from across the room, and is thinking about heading over to introduce himself. He's a little shy though, in his letter jacket and carrying his school books...too cute! After stamping and masking Judy, I stamped Richie higher up on the paper. He is drawn on a slightly smaller scale, so stamping him in this position on the page makes him appear to be a further distance away than Judy. (This way, the images still work together even though Judy is a little bigger than him. You can effectively combine images of different sizes if you make the perspective work in your favour.) The ginham design paper is from Making Memories and the pinwheel papers are from Echo Park. The "You're Nifty!" sentiment actually comes with another new February stamp, "Fanny"...you'll see her on some of the other Krafty Girls' sneak peeks today!



The images were stamped on Neenah Smooth cardstock and coloured with Copic markers.


Copics: Judy: Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R20 Hair: E50, E30, E31, E33, E37, E59, YR31 Shirt: R000, R00, R35, R37, R59, C9 Shorts: BG000, B32, B34, B37, B39, C9 Richie: Skin: E000, E00, E11, E21, R20 Hair: E50, E30, E31, E33, E37, E59, Jacket: YG00, YG23, YG25, G28, C9Pants: BG000, B90, B93, B95, B99, C9 Ground: W3, W1, W00

Just a reminder folks....did you see the POST about Kraftin' Kimmie's current contest for an April Krafty Guest Spot??? Well, one of the requirements for submission is to complete each challenge in February, so if you haven't finished your project for our Seeing Red challenge, you'd best get yourself into your craft room today, hang a "Do Not Disturb" sign on the knob and even lock the door for good measure so you can make sure to meet the deadline!! lol Time's a tickin' because a new challenge will be posted tomorrow...we're so excited to see all your submissions, so go get inky!!

We hope to see you back tomorrow for another round of previews and our weekly challenge...and don't forget to mark your calenders for our Release Day Blog Hop this Sunday!!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you have a fabulous Friday!!

Blessings,

Melanie
