Swimming By To Say Hi!

Time for another challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! This time, our hostess is the very lovely and very sweet Diana Pickering. She has a fun challenge this week...she wants us to make Cards for Kids!

This is Sunny the Turtle, one of the adorable recently released June stamps from our newest Krafty artist Emilie Goulet. I love him to bits!! Emilie has such a gift for giving her animals huge personality...just look at that grin, and I think the addition of a rubber ducky is the perfect finishing touch to this image! I used some paper that I've been hoarding from October Afternoon...I love plaid paper! The sentiment is from Kimmie's "Mermaid Sentiments".


Sunny was stamped on Neenah cardstock and coloured with Copic markers. I added some Glossy Accents to the water and sponged in a sky with Memento Summer Sky Ink and a hand-cut cloud template.


Copics: Turtle: YG00, YG03, YG63, YG67, G99, E11, E13, E17, E18, E59 Water: BG0000, BG000, B000, B00, B02, B05, B12, C00...and some of the above colours for the reflections Duck: Y00, Y11, Y17, E08 Bottle: Yoo, Y17, YR02, YR04, YR07, E08, E18

We'd love to have you join in our Kid's Card challenge this week. If you do, you could be the lucky winner of Dancing Dylan, the stamp Diana used on her card...oh, and Kimmie will also throw in four more Steven Leary stamps of the winner's choice!! Just make sure to use a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp to be eligible. You can check out all the fun kids cards made by the Krafty Girls this week at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Blog!

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend and thanks so much for stopping by today! :)

Blessings,

Melanie
