MORE June Release Krafty Peek Goodness!!

Welcome back for Day TWO of our Krafty Peeks!! So what do you think of the June KKStamps images so far?? Pretty darn incredible, wouldn't you say??? Heehee! I hope you love them HALF as much as I do!!

Today I have another Mermaid and another Miles the Mouse for you to see!!

Kay, so I decided that I wanted to step outside the box as far as colouring Miles goes! I figured, he's a cartoon mouse, so I can colour him pretty much whatever colour I want, right??? Right! So I pulled out these beachy papers and decided that Miles was going to be a mustardy, saffrony yellow to match! I was thinking, we could also colour him purple or blue or pink or LILAC!!! hehe!

I used Kraft cardstock for the A2 sized base and did a very simple layout. I coloured Miles using my Copics (of course) and coloured in some sand. Then I took my handmade little cloud template and used some chalk ink to sponge in some clouds. I added some pretty aqua ribbon and a trio of green rhinestones. Lastly I added one of the sentiments from Perfect Poison, because it was just too perfect for Beach Bum Miles!! heehee!!

This Mermaid is the beautiful Nerissa!! Isn't she just a gorgeous image??? I adore her long slender tail with the pretty fins and her luscious hair!! I look just like that when I get in the water..... What? Don't believe me?? Alright, FINE! Maybe I look more like Nerissa's chubby distant cousin. Whatever.

Anyhoo....I chose these sparkly My Mind's Eye papers because I love the colours and I thought they looked like rather fun underwater colours. I stamped Nerissa on Neenah and then cut her out with my Nesties, doing the 'outside the frame' technique again, which is so fun! I coloured her with my Copics....not exactly happy with the way her hair turned out, but....I do love the way her tail turned out. I coloured it with different shades of YG markers and then dotted in certain areas with G's and even an E marker to get more depth. I attached some Prima flowers with glittery brads and then added another one of my Walmart find seashell charms (thanks Mom). The final touch was the sentiment, which comes in the Mermaid sentiments that comes in the Summer Mermaid Kit!!

Now hop on over to the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge blog to see who else has some Krafty Peeks for ya!!

Happy kraftin'!
