This week's Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge is an incredible sketch by our very own ELAINE!! You know how much I loooooove sketches! It really gives me a jumping off point and inspires me as to what image to use and what stamps might fit the design!
Well, I finally got to play with Abigail Apple.....she's just so sweet! AND in an effort to use up some older paper, I found this awesome retired Stampin' Up paper that actually has APPLES on it! So I used the colours on the paper and chose similar Copic markers and coloured up Miss Abigail! I must say I do love how her hair turned out. Just love those swirly pony tails!
When you already have a sketch, the card just really seems to come together so quickly! I used Old Olive for the card base and Real Red for the matting. I added a corner flourish of swirly rhinestones at the bottom and a button with twine in the upper corner. I sponged around the frame of the circle with a blue ink and then gave Abigail a little sparkle on her apples and bows with my red Spica pen!
I hope you can join us for this week's challenge because this week's random winner will receive the whole set of new Krafty Quotes as featured on Elaine's gorgeous card. Now hop on over to the Challenge Blog and check out what all the Krafty Girls and Guests have for you to look at!!
