This time, Kim, from Kraftin' Kimmie's Korner, sent me this super adorable, just released yesterday, High Hopes image called, Jenny's Glow Bugs and the super sweet sentiment to go with it! I was soooo excited to get a High Hopes image...this is my very first,YAY!!!
So, I sent Kim this great Fancy Pants paper from the Michelle Coleman, Splendid collection. I really love this Valentine's paper but I think it is super versatile and would work for just about any happy occasion!
Now, do ya recall how this all goes down!? I'll recap for ya, Kim didn't know what paper I was sending her and I didn't know what image she was sending me!! Now, there is the potential for this to go south, fast! But we pulled it off again!!! I think this paper and image is a super combo!!!!
I coloured Jenny, inspecting her catch, with my Copic markers and used white acrylic paint for the high lights! I picked up my first jar of Shimmerz Paints at Stamping Bella on Friday! I went with Angle Wings, as, I thought it would be a good, all-purpose shimmerz, to start with and Nicky agreed (Hey Nicky*wave*!!!) So, I coloured in the glow bug's wings with the shimmerz and while I had it out, I added it to a few of the Prima flowers too! I can totally see how this shimmery goodness could become veerrrrry addictive...uuummm...yes, this could be a problem, smile!
Now, I have seen such fab stitching on so many cards out there in blogland! I think it just adds so much warmth and character to a card! So, I finally pulled out my clunker of a sewing machine, that my Mom gave me, and I fiddled with it, for what seemed like hours, trying to get it threaded etc. etc! When I finally got it all set up, I gave it a go! So, let's just say, I still have a lot to learn about sewing in a straight line, smirk! Yeah, definitely need some practice in the ol' sewing department,lol!!
But sewing aside, I think we had another successful K&T challenge...I am really having fun with the fear factor!!! We just never know what we are going to get but I think we are two for two! Another great combo!!!
Now, I can tell you, Kim's card is super sweet, as, I already had a sneak peak! So, what are you waiting for, go check it out on her blog!!!!
Thanks for stopping by and having a wee look-see!!!
