Curious and Curiouser...A Kraftin' Kimmie Sneak Peek!

Welcome to another Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge...and another Kraftin' Kimmie Sneak Peek!! You all know that release day is tomorrow, right?? I'm sure you've been stalking the Krafty Girls' and Krafty Guests' blogs over the past few days as we've been sharing sneak peeks! The previews continue today in conjunction with our challenge...oh, and of course we've got sneak peek blog candy too! Makes for a very exciting day at KKS. :)  You're in for quite the treat, as we're not only previewing the new December stamps by Annie Rodrigue, but we're also introducing a brand new sentiment set to coordinate with Annie's new characters!!

Our challenge hostess this week is the lovely and oh so talented Michele Boyer who has created a fantastic sketch for us to play along with.

Oh. My. Goodness. Do you have any idea how excited I was when Kimmie showed us these new stamps??!! Annie just outdid herself this month and created several characters from Alice in Wonderland! There are six characters in all. I chose to ink up Alice for my challenge card today...I absolutely LOVE her!! The paper on my card is from Bo Bunny (I think it's called Midnight Frost). I used several Spellbinders sets: Circles, Lacey Circles, Parisian Accents and Labels Eight. Alice comes with a coordinating sentiment ("Curious and Curiouser"), but the sentiment I used  is part of the brand new "Wonderland Sentiments". It consists of several fantastic Wonderland inspired sentiments that I know I will be reaching for frequently.


Just look at the movement Annie created in this image. You can just imagine her falling down the rabbit hole...and oh, that hair! This image was so much fun to colour up with the flowing tresses and fabric folds. I did enlarge her pupils a bit with my Copic Multiliner and added some blue irises.


Skin: E00, E000, E11, R20   Hair: E50, Y21, Y23, E31, E33, E35, E37, E59  Dress: B32, B34, B37, B39, BV23, C00, C3, C5, C7, E41, E43, E47  Pendant: Y38

Here's a look at Michele's sketch:
