I Wanna Be Krafty Guest!!!

Hello Bloggers!! I am soooooo excited that Kraftin Kimmie is giving us scrappy girls a chance to be a guest designer in December and all we have to do is make a card with our favourite Kraftin Kimmie stamp! Now, that may seem easy, however I have so many favs that it was pretty hard to narrow them down! I chose to ink up Patsy. I love her  big hair and her fun musical dress! I also used sentiments from Fanny and Danny (I just noticed that they’re names rhyme! hehe). I like how the sentiments that come with the stamps can be used with a few different images sometimes…it stretches out my stamping budget…haha anyone who knows me knows that budget is almost a foreign word for me! I can justify ANY crafty purchase!! Need a reason to buy something? just call me, I’ll give you a few ;) Anyhoo…on to my card:

I am just starting to learn how to colour in black and white, and I must say that I’m lovin’ it!! I thought this image would be perfect to do a monochromatic black and white image with the papers to match as it’s kind of a 50’s image and it goes hand in hand with that era :) I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out! I’ve gotta tell you though, that this is my first time doing a monochromatic card, (which just happens to be the challenge over at the  Kraftin Kimmie Challege blog this week!) and I definitely found it challenging! But I love a good challenge!


Here’s a close up:


It’s hard to see it in the picture, but I put a little Glossy Accents on her sunglasses to make them shine ;)

The cut off for this guest DT call is October 31st (I’m cuttin er a little close I know!!)  but I would absolutely LOVE to be a Krafty Guest! So….Pick Me! Pick Me!! lol ;)

Supplies Used: DP: Crate, Echo Park, Basic Grey. Cardstock: Quickutz, American Crafts , CTMH. Ribbon: May Arts. Bling: Dollorama. Doilie: Wilton, Glossy Accents, random buttons, Markers: Copics.

Oh, and I used a fab sketch from Sketch Saturday that I flipped on it’s side.

1 more sleep till Halloween and me and my DH’s 7th wedding anniversary!! Wooohooo!!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a krafty night ;)
