"Springtime Lulu" Kicks Off the March Kraftin' Kimmie Sneak Peeks!

Welcome to the first round of the March 2012 Kraftin' Kimmie sneak peeks...release day is this Sunday!! We're kicking off the previews today with another adorable Lulu set by Krafty Artist Cheryl Alger called "Springtime Lulu"! This new set will again feature three main image stamps. It also includes six coordinating sentiments.

This sweet image is one of the three main images you will receive in the Springtime Lulu Set. I stamped her on Neenah cardstock with Memento Ink and coloured her with Copics. I paper-pieced her shirt with a snippet of the My Mind's Eye patterned paper I used on the rest of the card. The clouds were sponged in with Memento Summer Sky. Both Lulu and the sentiment (which comes in the set) were cut out and matted with Spellbinders Labels 9. The pearls were all made with a Viva Decor Pearl Pen.



Skin: E000, E00, E11, R02  Hair: E50, YR31, E13, E17, E18, E35  Skirt: B12, B14, B39, C3 Shoe: E13, E17, E18, E59 (I added a bit of shading to the paper pieced shirt with a few green and grey markers)
