Ahoy Sailor!!

Welcome to day ONE of our MAY Kraftin' Kimmie previews!!! Today we are excited to share the cute new set called AHOY, SAILOR featuring Lulu, Lexi and Lucas! 

This sweet image of Lexie holding an anchor is my favourite from the new set Ahoy, Sailor! Isn't she sweet? I stamped her in Memento Desert Sand for the no-lines look and coloured her with Copics. She was stamped on X-press It paper. I'm a Neenah fan, but have been trying this paper out recently. I don't mind it, but Neenah is still by far my favourite. I added a fun sprinkle of freckles across her cheeks and nose with my E33 marker. I used some Graphic 45 clear stamps to create a border around her...these were stamped in Memento Summer Sky. She was cut out with Spellbinders. I'm pretty sure the papers are Basic Grey Picadilly, but the cover from the pad somehow got lost, lol. All paper edges were sponged with Stormy Sky Distress Ink. The corner embellishments were cut with the Contempo Compass Statement Corner Die from SCACD. The flourish is a MFT die. The flowers are Prima and I centered them with some metal jewelry spacers that I picked up from Walmart.
