Coffee Monster

Hey all! Today I have a fun card featuring Gerda Steiner Designs Coffee Monsters. I think this is my first time using any images from them, although I do have the unicorn set in my stash that I really need to ink up.

Bootyliscious

kks20challenge20blinkie20emilie20tire

Hey everyone! It is Wednesday, and that means it’s time for another Wonder Wednesday, anything goes, challenge over at Kraftin Kimmie Stamps!

I chose to colour up Bootyliscious (unfortunately she is currently out of stock but will be back soon). I really tried to replace this card and use it one it was back. But I got bogged down with a Migraine which didn’t allow that to happen.

First I cut a mask of this stamp on masking paper, it took forever but its always so awesome once its done! Then I used distress inks to create the background, splashing a little water on it.  I coloured up the image with my copic makers, then taking my watercolours I added some more deeper shadows to the image. Once all of that one done and good and dry I took a black pen and added in the hardwood floor lines.

We want EVERYONE to be able to play along so your submission can use ANY stamp and can be any theme, any style, any design and it can be a card, a scrapbook page, an altered item….you name it!! It must be a NEW creation and you can enter on this post until November 28th at midnight! At the end of the month one random winner will be chosen from all the submissions for the whole month and will receive a $20 Gift Card to the shop!!! What do you think…..wanna WIN?? Let’s see your krafty stuff!!

Happy Hedgehogs

Hey everyone! Today I have a nice one layer card to share with you all! I used My Favorite Things- Happy Hedgehogs!

MFT Stamp - Hedgehog Hugs - Jessie Banks.jpg

I started by creating masks of all the stamps I wanted on my little scene here. Then stamping and masking them out. I then took a whole bunch of different Distress Inks and created the background. One the inking was done I splashed a bunch of water all over, larger dots of water on the top and smaller on the bottom.

After pulling up masks and colouring up all of the images with my copic markers. I pulled out Green Apatite Genuine, French Ultramarine, and Lunar Black watercolours to add some more interest in the background. Finishing off the card with my White gel pen.
