Kraftin' Kimmie May Sneak Peeks....Round Two!!

(This is one of two posts today!! For the Wags 'n Whiskers Weekly Challenge, just scroll down or click here!! Also, don't forget to check in with The Town Scrapper later today for a fun sketch challenge!)

So, what did you think of the sneak peeks yesterday?? The Krafty Girls are all set to bring you another round of fantastic previews today! Check over on the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Blog for a list of the participating Krafty Girls. We will have one more day of previews tomorrow during our weekly challenge before the stamps are available for purchase on Sunday May 16, 2010!! As always, we are planning a fun BLOG HOP that day to celebrate the release!

Yesterday, I showed you a card featuring "Perfect Poison" based on one of artist Annie Rodrigue's original pieces. If you missed it, you can see it here. Today, I'm introducing you to another Annie Rodrigue "Eleanor"!! If you hopped around to the other Krafty Girl's blogs yesterday, you will have noticed that Kimmie's May release is full of sunny characters! Now, I don't know of too many gals who can pull off a bathing cap, but Eleanor looks quite fetching in hers! Hmmm...wonder if I should try wearing one this summer?? I just adore her sweet little swimsuit, as it offers a bit more, ahem, coverage for those of us who are not exactly bikini material. Know what I mean?? ;) Actually, all these new sunny characters have a bit of a retro feel to their beach attire...I LOVE IT!!

Eleanor was stamped on Neenah and coloured up with my beloved Copic markers. I chose to use one of my favourite bright colour combos on her and blue!! Complimentary colours always make things pop! This sentiment is part of the May release sentiment set. I mounted it on a medallion made from various Spellbinders. (The white layer is created with a clear stamp I've had kicking around for quite some time.)

Hop on over to the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Blog for today's links to the participating Krafty Girls' blogs. I'm telling you...these ladies are rockin' this release! They have some AMAZING projects to show you, so make sure to visit them all!
