Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge # 84...Beachy Keen!


Hey Krafty Friends! Hope you had a great week and are all set for a very Krafty weekend!!! I know I am going to be getting my Kraft on today!

Well, today I'm sharing the card I made for the new challenge that we have this week at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge blog! This week Michele is the fabulously krafty hostess and she has set a water themed challenge called "Make a Splash" ( beach, rain, anything wet or watery is good). Michele made a stunning card, as always, with the gorgeous Nerissa stamp from the Moonlight Whispers collection! If you join the challenge this week and use a KKS stamp on your card or creation you will be entered into the random draw to win a Nerissa stamp of your very own! How fabulous is that!?

For my card I used more BasicGrey Sweet Threads 6x6 papers....absolutely love this BG collection! I cut several wave borders on my Silhouette Digital Craft Cutter and inked the edges with Tumbled Glass Distress ink. I used sweet Elanor...love her to bits. She is definitely one of my all time Favorite Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. I coloured her with my Copics and paper pieced her bathing dress and cap and coloured parts of the paper pieced dress with my Copic makers too. I added some Rose Viva Decor Pearl Pen to the centers of the flowers on the bathing cap. The flowers were cut with my MFT Flower and Leaf Trio Die-namics set, Perfect Petal Trio Die-nmaics set and Pretty Posies Die-namics set with BG Sweet Threads buttons in the centers. I added some Rain Dots water splashes here and there to continue on with the water theme. The sentient is from the Kimmie's Mermaid sentiment set and stamped on a tag cut with a QuicKutz die. 

Here is the inside of the card! I used another sentiment from Kimmie's Beachy Sentiment set and the Happy B-day sentiment is from an old MFT sentiment set and is stamped on another QuicKutz tag. 

Well thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my KKS Challenge card today! I really hope you can join the challenge!

I love how you've used theose pink buttons to pick out the hints of pink amongst your patterned papers. The wavy bordering is superb & I do like that inside - stunning. The sentiment flower picks up the floral patterned paper nicely too.
