Kraftin' Kimmie April Release Sneak Peek - Day 1

Hey everyone...
It's time for one of my most favourite things...
A
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp Release

And boy are you all in for the biggest treat...

For this release we have gone medieval!
Kimmie has 7 gorgeous images for this release
6 designed by the equally gorgeous Annie Rodrigue
and one new Cindy and Mindy image...
But first I would like you to meet

Guinevere...


Ok, I have to say this card is not ME... 
I was trying to go out of my comfort
zone a bit and was inspired by one of our beautiful
and lovely Krafty Girls, Tara.
She has this way of making a card collage of lace, flowers, gems
and bits and pieces and making it look like a work of art...
So I thought I would give it a try. It was hard... 
Well, for me anyway, but I don't think that this turned
out too bad!

I used this gorgous MME DP from the Bloom and Grow collection and I also
found some old script DP that I have had forever... I used one of the 2
sentiments that come with Guinevere when you buy her  
" It's Good To Be Queen"
and shock horror I pulled out a flower from my stash...
The middle bit is from Prima.


I coloured Guinevere in with my Prisma's and also cut her out...


I then used the other sentiment that comes with Guinevere
"You Are The Queen" for inside the card...

If you want to see more of this fantastic release head on over
to the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge Blog and see what the amazing
and very talented Krafty Girls have to share with you.

Ok, so that's it for today, thanks for stopping by and don't
forget I will have another Kraftin' Kimmie sneak peek for you tomorrow.

Donna your card is absolutely amazing and WOW your colouring is amazing! I did end up having a go with them and gave up like a stubborn little 3 year old kicking a screaming WHY CAN'T they work for me, hahaha everything takes practice I guess but why do that when I can just come and drool over your work using them!
LOVE it!
Hugs Kel xx
