I See Charlotte!!!

Look at what I found when I was boppin' around the internet!! Isn't she gorgeous!!? I didn't expect to see people playin' with my images quite so quickly, but since Amy Wegener is carrying Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps in her online store in Australia, I'm guessin' she felt that Charlotte was just crying out to her to be coloured!!! Heehee!!

I've done some design team work with Amy in the past and I am always in awe when I see her colouring! From what I remember, she uses SU inks and her blender pen on watercolour paper to get these amazingly soft designs! (Correct me if I'm wrong, Amy!) I love how her cards aren't too fussy...all the focus is on her colouring and the images. I just think Charlotte and her dolls are so sweet in these colours!!

Now don't forget to hop on back over here to our Challenge Blog on Saturday morning! It will be the first week of our challenges and if you take part and show us your creations, you could win some Kraftin' Kimmie rubber!!! How does that sound???
