Kimmie's Challenge #6!!!


I hope you all had a wonderfully creative weekend!!! My honey came home from Calgary on Friday night and it was so nice to have him back!! It's true, what they say.....absence DOES make the heart grow fonder!!! Unfortunately, he'll be heading back on Tuesday morning....sigh.

Thanks so much for 'gettin' dirty' with me last week!! There were some fabulous cards for the challenge and the random winner of some sweet little stamps is.....Jana Weaver!!!! Yaaaay!!! Jana, just email me your address and I'll mail them out to you!!

Since you all love sketches so much, I thought I'd do one of those for this week's challenge!! Use the above card's layout as inspiration for your creation, be it a card or a scrapbook page!!!

For this one, I used my Magnolia stamp, Edwin and his balloon! Technically speaking, it's Edwin med ballong....but I don't speak Swedish!! Haha!! I stamped him on some Fabriano watercolour paper in Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink and coloured him in using my Prismacolour pencils and odourless mineral spirits. I think I might be getting a little better with this technique! Yay me! And how ironic that the patterned paper I used is from the Magnolia line by My Mind's Eye!! Heehee!

I distressed everything with a cosmetic sponge and Walnut Ink by Ranger. I used some orange grosgrain ribbon and a ribbon slider that says 'birthday' on it. I also added some SU buttons with brown linen thread and of course, some Stardust Stickles on his purdy angel wings!! I think I'll give this one to my nephew on his birthday in December!!

So link me up to your creations in this posting when you join in the challenge! And if you upload your card to the SCS gallery, be sure to use the keyword KC6, so that we can all check them out!!! Challenge entries must be in by next Sunday, November 18th at noon!!!

No go get stampin'!!
