Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps meets BasicGrey Challenges #5...Furever Friends!

Good morning "Krafty" friends! I have another Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps sneak peek for you this morning and I combined it with the great sketch by Martine that we have over on the BasicGrey Challenge blog! I hope you can join the challenge this week or maybe next! All you have to remember is to use one BasicGrey product on your creation! Oh and make sure you check out the BasicGrey DT creations cuz they just ROCK!!!!

So, do you wanna know more about these cutie patooties...well, okay, let me introduce you to Roxy and Bernice! O.K. I have to say Kimmie has done a wonderful job naming all the characters...WOW, the names Roxy and Bernice just suit them to a T!!!!! Don't they!?

Now I have a wee confession to make....I'm not that good at colouring critters and because of that I have avoided cute animal stamps for fear of detracting from their cuteness with my bad colouring, lol!!! But I have taken the plunge! I hope I have done Crissy's gorgeous image of Roxy and Bernice justice!

So, I stamped Roxy and Bernice on ATS Copic paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them with my Copics and cut the image out with my new Nesties...Labels 7!!

For the card I made a 6x6 cardbase from pink Bazzill Bling cardstock and used my new fabulously Delicious BasicGrey Eskimo Kisses and one of the solid turquoise sheets from BG Lemonade! I also used some Eskimo Kisses brads too! I got my little paws on the Eskimo Kisses range when I visited Kimmie, Andrea and Sheila at Scrapin' Great Deals! I also bought this yum-O, cotton lace. I just love it and it was perfect for this card! I used a lot of pop-dots to give the layers some added dimension and I added a few Primas! The photo turns are a QK 2x2 die. Then to finish it off I added some Angel Wings Shimmerz to the flowers and to Roxy and Bernice!

Now isn't that the best sentiment! I embossed it with American Crafts Zing White embossing powder....such great stuff! I really love the look of a crisp white sentiment!
Well, thanks for stopping by and having a wee sneak peek at Roxy and Bernice and I hope you can join the challenge over at BasicGrey Challenges Blog!

Your card is absolutely gorgeous Tara, just love the new BG papers don't you ? Love the new Kimmie image you have used too. I had the same problem as you, not very good at colouring animals but I reckon we both did well this week (even if I say so myself !!).

Have a great weekend,

Fabulous card Sweetie and Crissy's new images are superb, I love them! All the elements you put together are superb and your colouring is just beautiful!
