Colouring on Kraft...a Make it Colourful Challenge

Looking for the Kraftin' Kimmie Sneak Peeks? Please make sure to check back at 7:00 EST! :) 

Good morning folks!! I was asked to be one of the guest designers for the "Colour on Kraft" challenge with the Make It Colourful team. I had the great pleasure of joining this lovely team of ladies for a challenge a couple of months ago, and have been looking forward to playing along again. :)

Zoe, the owner of Make It Crafty, recently released a fabulous collection of mermaids and coordinating backgrounds. I chose to work with the digital stamp version of "Mermaid Shellina". I printed her off on kraft cardstock, but first reduced the opacity of the image so that the outline was more subtle. She was coloured with Copic markers, cut out with some circle Spellbinders and matted with Lacey Circles Spellbinders. I used a Make It Crafty Chipboard corner which was coloured with my G82 marker. The flourish was cut with an MFT die and the paper is from DCWV.

Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, RV95, R20  Hair: E50, E31, E33, E37, E59  Tail: YG00, YG03, YG11, BG10, BG01, BG05, BG09, BG78, C9  Shells: R22, R29, R59, C9  Seahorse: Y21, Y38, E13, E17, E18, E59

Make sure to pop by Make It Colourful for all the details on the challenge and also check out the Make It Colorful design team projects in the MIC Clubhouse gallery.

I just wanted to say a huge thanks again to Zoe and her team for having me as a guest!

Thanks for stopping by. :)
