Good morning Krafty friends! Are you glad it is the weekend?! I sure am! I had another crazy week at work so it is going to be so nice to just relax and maybe do some stamping,he, he, he! Well, I have a card to share with you this morning that I made for both the Basic Grey challenges and Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge! At BG Challenges we have another one of Martine's fabulous sketches for you to use and over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps challenge the very talented, Guest Krafty Girl, Krista, has set the challenge...Rough it Up...add any kind of texture or distressing! Krista has made the cutest card featuring the fabulous new stamp Perfect Poison from the May release. If you join the challenge and use a Kraftin' Kimmie stamp on your creation you will be entered into the random draw to win a Perfect poison stamp...how cool is that!?
So I made my cardbase 6x6 from American Crafts cardstock and I used BG Recess pp and the green sheet is from Sugared. I followed Martine's fabulous sketch and I added texture by using a piece of a corrugated box and I painted it with Tim Holtz Distress Crackle paint in White Picket fence. I stamped this sweet Kraftin' Kimmie stamp from the Crissy's Cuties collection called Gone Fishin' with Memento Ink on Neenah card and coloured Huck and Lady with my Copics.
I stamped the Autumn Leaves ticket stamp on pp and cut it out with my Ticket punch and then wrinkled it to add to the distressing.The sentiment on the QuicKutz tag is a Melissa Frances rub-on and the flower and brads are from a Chatterbox scrapbooking kit.
