Engineer Ethan...another Kraftin' Kimmie Sneak Peek!

Good afternoon folks! Today, the Krafty Girls are sharing sneak peeks featuring a new set of cute little tykes by Krafty artist Steven Leary. Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps will be releasing all the new May stamps this Sunday!

This cute young lad is "Engineer Ethan". I paired him up with this fantastic plaid paper from October Afternoon...I've been hoarding this piece of paper for quite a while! The green patterned paper is from Crate Paper (the light blue horizontal strip is the reverse side of the same sheet). I distressed the paper edges and applied Distress Inks with a makeup sponge. (Stormy Sky and Walnut Stain.) The "Play" ticket is from Tim Holtz. I crumpled the ticket up and treated it to some Distress Ink as well.

"Engineer Ethan" was stamped on Neenah cardstock with Memento Ink and coloured with Copic markers.

Copics: Skin: E000, E00, E11, E21, RV42 Hair: E50, E31, E33, E37, E59 Overalls and hat: B91, B93, B95, B97, C9 Shirt: R27, R29, R46, R59 Tunnel: E50, E30, E31, E25, E29 Train: R27, R29, R46, R59, G14, G17, G20, G20, C3, C5, C9
