It’s Saturday morning, that means….time to get out Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps and participate in the weekly challenge. This time it’s a color challenge: Purple, Green and Orange. I picked Charlotte. I like the way she smiles like she is up to something.


I stamped her in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on X-Press It Blending card. I cut and embossed the image with Label 16 Nestabilities, colored it with Copic Markers (dress and hair band: YG03, YG25, YG17 underskirt and doll: V000, V01, V12, V15, V17, doll skin: E41, E43 doll eyes: E44, E47 doll dress: YR12, YR15, YR18 Charlotte’s skin: E51, E53, ground: N0, N1, N3) and airbrushed the background with BG11.

I adhered a  2 1/2″ x 4″ strip of Mathilda Cosmo Cricket paper to a small strip of Pixie-licious paper and taped both to a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of another patterned from the Pixie-licious paper pack. The paper was stitched to a 3/16″ bigger piece of Early Espresso cardstock. 


Brown Crinkled May Arts ribbon was tied around where the two horizontal layers met. It was topped with a green glitter Recollection brad. The card base is a 4 1/2″ x 11 3/4″ piece of light purple Core’dinations cardstock folded in half. The image layer was adhered with dimensionals to the card base.

The sentiment is from the stamp set Sassy Sentiments. It has hilarious sentiments in it. I stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black on Solar White cardstock and cut and embossed it with Petite Oval Nestabilities. The oval was airbrushed with Copic Marker YR12. Three small Prima Flowers were adhered under the sentiment panel. I cut up a Recollection Rhinestone swirl and adhered it to the card base to finish up the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs and smiles
