April Krafty Peeks...Day Two!

Hello and happy Friday to all my blogging friends!! Did you know that we are only a couple of days away from the next release at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps?? You will be able to get your inky little fingers on the new April stamps this Sunday...but in the meantime, the Krafty Girls and Krafty Guests have been busy creating some gorgeous sneak peeks! Yesterday, we showed you projects featuring the new set, "Krafty Quotes #3"...today we'll be showing you the new stamps by Krafty artist Steven Leary!

For my card today, I chose to use the adorable "Chef Sheldon"...how cute is this little guy?! Steven's cute little tykes this month are perfect for cards, tags, party favours, scrapbook layouts...so many possibilities! The paper is from October Afternoon. The sentiment is from Kimmie's "Everyday Sentiments Set".



Chef Sheldon was coloured with Copics on Neenah paper. I had initially intended for his hat to be white, and used my E40 range to shade it. However, after I was done, I realized that a green hat would suit the paper much better, so I started laying down greens over top of the original colour.

Copics: Skin: E000, E00, E11, E21 Hair: E30, E31, E33, E37, E59, Hat: (first attempt: E50, E41, E42, E47) G20, G82, G85, G99, E49 were then layered over top Apron: G20, G82, G85, E49 Shirt: R37, E59, C9 Lettering: R37 Oven Mitts: BG0000, BG10, BG11, BG72, BG75, C9 Shoes: E50, E31, E25, E59 Pie tin: C9, C5 Crust: E50, E31, E33, E37, E59

To see some more sneak peeks of the new stamps by Steven Leary, hop on over to the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Blog where you will find a list of links to the Krafty Girls and Krafty Guests who have previews to share!

Please join us tomorrow for our weekly challenge, and another round of sneak peeks featuring new stamps by another Krafty artist...oh, and don't forget to plan to join us for the official release day blog hop on Sunday!

Melanie

Absolutely gorgeous card Mel, but I have to admit when I first saw Sheldon I just couldn't help thinking of "Sheldon" from The Big Bang Theory....I reckon, if he cooked, he would look just like yours !! Amazing work...Again!!! Xx
