Hey everyone! Happy Saturday! Today it is time for a new challenge over at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps. Make sure you play along, you could win a gift card to the store!!!

This weeks challenge theme is Mermaids! One of my favourite things to colour (okay everything is one of my favourite things to colour. I coloured up Florence Finbottom for today’s card!

KKS Florence Finbottom

I pulled out my Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils and spent hours working on this no lines mermaid. I love how she came out and that the background is like bubbles filled in to allow there to be lots of white space. I did not keep track of the coloured pencils used for this one as I just kept layering and colouring and did most of it outside enjoying a fire.

Have you joined the Kraftin Kimmie’s Krafty Friends fb group?? It’s the best place to keep up with all of the goings on as well as sharing YOUR creations and getting inspired by other Krafty Friends’ creations!!!

The June release is in the Krafty Store NOW!!! Happy shopping 🙂

Playing Marbles

Hey everyone! Today I have a card to share featuring Playing Marbles from The Paper Shelter. This was a special request card and it took me forever to find and image I liked with kids playing marbles.

I coloured these little guys up with my copic markers, unfortunately I did’t write down all the markers I used, this was a last minute card. But it turned out ever so sweet.

I created the sentiment myself, so that it fit the event and humour of the family that asked for the card.
