Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps is thrilled to introduce a new artist to our krafty mix....her name is Cheryl Alger! You may recognize her name from Sassy Cheryl's where she creates digital art. Cheryl is creating a brand NEW line of images, specifically for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! These stamps will ONLY be available at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and ONLY as unmounted rubber stamps! Now here's a bit about Cheryl!
I grew up outside of Staunton, Virginia, but now live in the Richmond, Virginia. I absolutely LOVE to draw and always carry a small sketchbook with me in case inspiration strikes me while I'm out and about. I have been creating digital art now for about 12 years now and have licensed my work to companies such as Kohl's, Hobby Lobby and Shopko, among others, for over eight years. I started creating digital images about two years ago. It's been a lifelong dream to become a working artist, and besides deadlines, I LOVE everything about what I do! It really helps that I have a very supportive husband and son (they also can be my biggest critics! I have to admit, I LOVE my job!
And I have one of the new images to share!!! Meet Spring Friends!! Totally cute, right??
I stamped this lovely little girl on Neenah cardstock using Memento ink and coloured her up with my Copic markers. It was so much fun! The image is about 3 inches tall so it's not too small and also not too large so it's overwhelming to colour! Just right!
The papers are some from My Mind's Eye and are some of my favourites. Sadly, I don't have much of it left. *pout* I used coordinating cardstocks for matting and added some wide grosgrain ribbon and a big ol' bow! I also attached some orange Prima flowers with some corduroy brads in the corner and I finished off the card by stamping the sentiment that comes with Spring Friends!
Now be sure to hop over to the KKS Challenge Blog to check out what the other Krafty Girls and Guests have creations to share with you.
