Good evening peeps how are you all? Hope you are all taking care & keeping wrapped up in this freezing weather..........I've still got my kids off school I'm not risking them travelling in this weather, mind you the kids certainly dont mind being off school lol. Even Natalie has been better at night time cus she has had no school, we still get her screaming on but its never more than 2 hours sometimes as less as an hour which is blinking fantastic on a school night she can easily go 4 hours+......you would think she would wear herself out wouldn't you but not Natty (call her that for short...Batty Natty, cus she's as batty as her mum lol).
Right anyway as its after midnight I will get on with it. I was doing a bit of craft crimbo shopping the other day for some crafting buddies & hubby liked a certain stamp so he got it me....here she is....
This is Charlotte from Kraftin Kimmie, its my 1st Kraftin Kimmie stamp. If I'm being totally honest I've never truly liked these stamps.....I hear you all gasping & tutting at me but calm down & let me explain!! Well some of them have what I used to think huge heads that kinda freaked me out a bit......come on they are surely gonna fall off or make them topple. Well I have started to like them this 1 especially cus I adore her hair its fab & I know the others will grow on me & I will end up buying loads. Actually there are a few that have gone on my santy list....yeah I've had to make a list of stamps I would like for Craig & the kids to pick some to get me.....but guess what there are NO magnolia's in the list AT ALL....how good am I!!!!
I really do like this stamp & I can see me using her loads once crimbo is over & done with.....tomorrow I get back to doing crimbo cards!!! The list of links & materials will be at the bottom of this post. I will tell you tho I coloured her with, Promarkers, Copics & Prisma pencils & sansador....they all make a fab combination as long as you remember to leave your pencils til last DONT use the pens on top of the pencil cus it will ruin the nibs.
I have followed a sketch & also I'm gonna enter the Kraftin Kimmie challenge blog which will be my 1st time & they are wanting spots,if you look at the small image she is holding I have added spots to her skirt lol. I've had this ribbon forever so everything else followed on from there.
I dont know if its just me but when I have a new stamp I fill an A4 sheets of images off that stamp cus I'm usually quite nervous that I'm gonna muck it up so I do a few just incase I need to practice or something. Anyway I did the same with this but she was just that easy to colour the rest have gone into my images box.... I really did enjoy this card & it gave me a lot of pleasure & I actually quite like the way its turned out, new colour scheme for me & new image.....woh I'm getting brave he hee.
