I made this card for the current challenge over at Kraftin' Kimmie's Stamps Blog, this week the challenge is called 'Stash the booty' a perfect theme for one of the new releases at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. The new Annie Rodrigue line is all about pirates, too cute!!! You are supposed to have a 'hidden' element on your card. Since I don't have any of the new stamps to stash some real pirate booty, I chose this beautiful KKS image called bird fairy.I thought so hard to get creative with this one, but Melanie, this was definately a 'challenge' for me! So I pulled out a hinge from my stash and hid the sentiment (which comes with the fairy stamp) underneath a little panel....I know...boring! But I must say it was FUN doing it!!!!
I coloured her up using my lightest shades of copic markers, I had so many markers on my desk by the end it was actually humorous! I shaded a little bit around the edges with prismacolour pencil to soften it up. Then came the stickles galore!!! I added some turquoise to her wings, some crystal to her hair, belt, and ribbon laces around her legs and some diamond stickles to the bird. The dp is from Little Yellow Bicycle and the solid card stock is Bazzill. To see a close up of the gorgeous detail on this stamp you can double click the pictures!
