Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge # 12...Heavy Metal & Another Sneak Peek!

Good Morning Krafty friends! I am so glad that you could come by today and see another sneak peek of the Kraftin' Kimmie January Release. All the new stamps will be available in the KKS on-line shop tomorrow, Sunday, January 10, 2010! Today is also our Kraft' Kimmie Stamps challenge day and I am the hostess with the mostest this week! This week I challenge you to let your hair down and be a little "Heavy Metal"....I was a total Heavy Metal chic in High school,lol! Well, I don't expect any head banging or anything too extreme, like that, smile! Just add any kind of metal embellishment or accent to your card or creation! I really hope you can join the challenge this week, as the random winner of the challenge will win this adorable stamp of Cindy & Mindy Called Dance Recital and a coordinating dance sentiment stamp that I have used on my card.

So, as I said, I picked this absolutely adorable image of Cindy and her furry friend, Mindy called Dance Recital created by Krafty artist, Jean Grant. I stamped Cindy & Mindy on ATS Copic Quality paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured it with my Copics. I cut the image out with my Nesties, used the die as a stencil and inked around the image with Distress Inks.
I made my card base 6x6 from Bazzill Basic Cardstock and used this super cute and girly BoBunny Press Love Bandit paper. I inked all the edges of my paper with Chestnut Roan chalk ink and then after the card was assembled I dry-brushed around the edges with pink acrylic paint. I added a Making Memories Vintage Metal accent and dry-brushed it as well. I can't seem to make a card without a few Prima flowers and I put MM metal flower and heart brads in the centres. To finish it off I added some pink tulle and a BG pearl flourish that I cut up and placed here and there on the card.

Here is the inside of the card. I used an element from the BoBunny Love Bandit 12x12 cut out sheet and stamped this dance sentiment which comes with the Dance Recital stamp.
Well, thanks for stopping by and having a wee sneak peek! I really hope you can join the challenge this week and make sure to pop on over to the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps challenge Blog and see all the gorgeous kreations by our Krafty Girls and I would be remiss if I didn't acknowledge our two new, super talented Guest Krafty Girls Donna Wardle and Melanie Holtz! You must check out their work...it's just breathtaking! Oh and come back tomorrow cuz we are having a big ol' KKS blog hop to celebrate the new release!
