Kraftin Kimmie Stamps Challenge – Anything Goes


Hey everyone! It is time for a new challenge over at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps! I am the hostess this week and the theme is Anything Goes!

Kraftin Kimmie Stamps - Ewe are Amazing - Jessie Banks.jpg

I pulled out a stamp set I bought way back when it was released, long before I was on the design team, and finally used it! I love the Ewe are Amazing stamp set. I coloured up the sheep with my copic markers. The background was created with my watercolours then I stamped the sentiment so it looks like the sheep is jumping over it.
