Challenge #464 - Flowers!

Hello and welcome to another fun
Saturday Challenge!
Are you ready for some krafty fun?
We can't wait for you to play along and share your amazing krafty kreations!



This week our hostess is Krafty Girl, Sabrina and
your challenge theme is....
FLOWERS!

***
It's so cold out but I made this happy springtime card!
I used the mouse from the Puddle Pals set!



Now this time I did not color with my copics or with my pencils I used the Krafty Kolours Hybrid Inks to paint my mouse!! I put some ink on a plastic paint pallet (either the refill or by pressing the ink pad on the pallet) and added some rubbing alcohol to that to thin the ink.

Colors:
Wicked Black for the lines
Granite Grey for the mouse
Mossy Meadow for the leave
and of course our INK of the month Raspberry Rose for the tulip and the ears/tail/feet



The background was not painted, the background I made with the Sweater Weather stencil and sponges.
<the stencil is currently sold out, restocks are on its way, you can sign up on the website and be the first to know when it is back!>

I put some tape on the stencil so I just had 1 'tulip' showing and then sponged through that with the new Pretty in Pink and the 
Raspberry Rose inks, cleaned the stencil and then did it again with the Mossy Meadow
 some a little darker then others. I drew the stems with my copic G99.
Also added a little mossy meadow to the bottom of the paper and some Raspberry Rose behind the mouse.

The sentiment is also Raspberry Rose and is from the Kick Assy Birthday stamp set!

Hopefully this inspired you to get krafty!!
Lets see some Flower cards!!

Inspirational Wednesday - Ice, Ice Baby!

Good Morning and Happy Wednesday fellow krafters!!!
Welcome to another Inspirational Wednesday post!


Each week one of our amazing design team members will be here to inspire you to get creative with your krafty stamps!

This week Krafty Girl, Keri is sharing her creation featuring  
Ice, Ice Baby!

I am so excited to be able to share a new creation with you today.  


I'm so happy to be here on the Kraftin Kimmie Blog today to share some inspiration with you!  I ALWAYS grab my Copic markers when I sit down to color, but today I'm using Pencils on Kraft paper!  I had so much fun trying something different and working with a different medium.  I chose the joyful rabbit for this scene from the Ice, Ice, Baby stamp set!  

I challenge you to grab something different.  A different color combo, a different medium or maybe just a technique you have been wanting to try.   Do IT!!  Remember, its just paper and ink (or pencils or watercolor ;) )!

Thanks for dropping by!


And guess what?  This sweet stamp set is on SALE in the krafty shop all week long!  So 'hop' on over to grab it!
