Hey everyone! It is Wednesday and that means its time for another Wonderful Wednesday challenge! Bring out your Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps, and make whatever your heart desires, no theme, doesn’t even have to be a card!

Kraftin Kimmie Stamps - Dollie Diver - Jessie Banks.jpg

I coloured up Dolly Diver, with my Faber-Castell Polychromos, and Prismacolor coloured pencils. I did this hanging out outside on my deck before the weather started to cool off, so I do not have a list of colours that I used. I have been all over these super CAS cards lately and this one is no exception. I created an angled block of colour along the top of the panel for my sentiment to sit along.

Hope you found some inspiration here to play along!

My Favorite Things – Hog Heaven

Hey everyone! Today I have a super CAS card featuring My Favorite Things – Hog Heaven. I have made this card to enter into the Clean and Simple Genius challenge for the 2017 Card Design Superstar Challenge.

MFT Stamps - Happy Hogs - Jessie Banks.jpg

I coloured these cuties up with my copic markers, and then enhanced the shading with my coloured pencils after. I really love all the white space and the transparency of the balloons. The more times I try the no lines colouring the more I am starting to feel comfortable and not completely terrified when I start one.
