Tatiana

Hey Krafty peeps!

Welcome to another challenge with Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. This week our hostess the incredibly talented  Krista. She would like to see Flowers on your projects...such a great challenge for spring. :)

I've used Tatiana on my card today. I had actually coloured her up during the preview week for March's release, but hadn't had a chance to put her on a card yet. The papers are some older Prima sheets. I added some Make It Crafty Chipboard corners, some pearls, flourishes cut with a Memory Box Die and a glitter Prima rose.



Tatiana was stamped and coloured on Neenah with Copics. Are you loving that gorgeous frame??? That is one of two designs in the newly released Fabulous Frames set. This set also comes with several versatile sentiments. Rather than masking my image, I just fussy cut the frame out after colouring it, placed it over my image to mark the spots on her hair and wings that I wanted to extend beyond the frame and then snipped along the image outline a bit. I then slipped the frame into place and trimmed the background paper to fit. When assembling the card, I added a tiny foam pop dot under her wings to give a bit of dimension. Her wings were given a bit of sparkle with a thin coat of Stardust Stickles.



We'd love to have you join us for the Flower challenge this week. If you do, you could win the stamp Krista used on her gorgeous project...just make sure to use a KKS image to be eligible. For more flowery inspiration, pop on over to the KKS Blog to check out what the rest of the Krafty Girls have created this week.
