Ahoy Matey!! (Kraftin' Kimmie March Sneak Peeks....Round 2!!)

Today at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Blog, we are showcasing the soon-t0-be-released March images brought to us by Krafty Artist Steven Leary!! (Release day is this Sunday!) Steven is bringing us some brand new characters this month...some little PIRATES!!! Oh my goodness, they are absolutely adorable and I just love them. :)

Introducing "Becky Broadsword" and "Cap'n Charlie"! These young pirates were stamped on Neenah Smooth cardstock with Memento Ink and then coloured with Copic makers. The "Ahoy Matey" sentiment is from a previously released Kraftin' Kimmie set, "Pirate Sentiments". I also used another sentiment from this set on the inside of my card that reads "It's Yarr Birthday!". (both were stamped in Walnut Stain Distress Ink) You might want to consider snagging yourself this sentiment set to go along with these new pirates...there are a TON of sentiments in this set, and they're just perfect for these new characters from Steven Leary!! Of course, you will need to wait until Sunday to get your inky little fingers on the new stamps!



Copics: Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20, Hair: E50, E31, E31, E33, E35, E37, E59 Clothes: B91, B93, B95, B97, B99, C9, E30, E21, E25, E29, 100, C10, C9, C5, C3, Y17 Swords: E50, E30, E25, E29, C3, C1, C00

Here's a shot of the inside:


These new little pirates would make amazing birthday cards for your favourite little tykes......OOOH could you just imagine a whole set of birthday invitations for a pirate themed birthday party??? Since these images are a little smaller, you could easily colour up a whole bunch of them for invitations, party favours, after party thank-you notes...oh, the list goes on and on and on!! I also think they would be great for Halloween or Dress-Up scrapbook layouts!

Alrighty landlubbers!! Off with ye' to the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Blog where ye' can feast yer eyes on all the sneak peaks by the Krafty Girls and Krafty Guests!! :)

Please make sure to join us tomorrow for another round of previews featuring new stamps by yet another Krafty Artist...you are going to LOVE them!!

Melanie

Oh my goodness, Melanie! Your coloring is heavenly -- I want to color like you when I grow up. Going to have to comb through your blog and 'study' when I get a moment... :)
