Halloween Sprite

Well, welcome back for another fun challenge with Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!!! 

This week our hostess is SHERI!! And her challenge is Let's Get SENTIMENTAL!! So create a card, scrapbook page or altered item with a Kraftin' Kimmie stamp that features a sentiment of some sort!! It can be the focal point of your card or it can be an addition to one of our images! Have some krafty fun and join us this week because we'd LOVE to see your KKS designs. We hope you can play along for your chance to WIN some Kraftin' Kimmie rubbah!!!

I'm sharing a card I made a few weeks back at a fun event. Kimmie and I trekked up to Kitchener to spend the weekend at Scrapfest. We had a blast...our table was full of a group of fantastic ladies (hey Alexis!!) who we thoroughly enjoyed spending our time with. We laughed, crafted, ate and shopped to our heart's content. It was so much fun! One of the items I scored was the Chillingsworth paper pad from Echo Park. I REALLY wanted this pad, but didn't have an opportunity to scoop it up last Halloween. Well, seeing as Halloween is one of my favourite themes to work with and there was a card contest at the crop, I needed to crack this pad open immediately. The only problem was that I didn't have any Halloween stamps with me. So, I decided to use one of our Sprites, Naida,  and give her a bit of spooky flair. I used a flourish stamp to create a border around the Orange paper, distresses everything and sponged it all with black ink. The orange flower was one Kimmie had brought along (thanks!!). I used a music background stamp on it, and again inked it with black. It was centred with an antique looking brad. The flourishes were made with a Memory Box die. The funky corner embellishment was created with one of the Dies by SCACD, Alice's Clock Statement Corner

Wondering where my sentiment is for this week's challenge? I added it to the inside of my easel card. It had been a while since I had made one of these cards...they really are a lot of fun to make, and they display your image perfectly! I borrowed an MFT die from Kimmie to cut out this fun sentiment that comes with Naida

Here's a close up of Naida

(sorry I don't have a colour list for you's been several weeks since I coloured her up!)
