24 Krafty Karats ..... and Annie's NEW STAMPS!!!

My goodness this day seems like such a long time in coming! It's only been about 3 months since Annie and I decided on an Asian Inspired theme for June but it feels like SO much longer!! I'm SUPER excited to share these elegant, gorgeous girls with you!! And we're combining them with this week's Krafty Challenge!!

Our hostess this week is ANGIE!! The challenge is called 24 Krafty Karats and we need you to use gold in some form on your creations! I don't have a whole lot of gold in my stash, but that's why it's called a challenge, right?? I was lucky to find some gorgeous designer paper with gold in it, but you can also use gold twine, gold paper, gold brads, gold embellishments or even just some gold glitter!!!



The image I used is the stunning new SAKURA! Her name means Cherry Blossom. Doesn't she look so sweet and demure, but also like she might have a little secret?? I went with the colour combination of red, gold and black and coloured her up with my Copic markers. The designer papers are by DCWV and I think they look perfect with Sakura!

I coloured her up and then used one of my new Nesties to cut her out and emboss her. While she was still in the frame, I sponged around the edges with some black distress ink and then I added some gold sparkle to her bow, hairpins, comb and fan using my gold Spica pen. The sentiment that I used at the bottom comes with Sakura!



Lastly the charm that I used at the side is an antique gold coin of sorts that I found in my stash of goodies. Not sure where I got it or when I thought I would ever use it, but see how it came in handy?? I think it really makes the card!

So join us for this week's challenge and you could win one of the stamps that Angie used this week. AND if you leave comments today on each of the Krafty Girls' posts, you could be one of TWO lucky winners who will each receive THREE of these lovely new Asian Inspired stamps!!!

Be sure to come back for tomorrow's Krafty HOP and ALL these amazing new stamps will be available in the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop!!!
