Kraftin' Kimmie Blog Hop and New Release!




Today marks the release of the new February images from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!  There are 5 new swashbuckling pirate images from Annie Rodrigue, a new set of coordinating Pirate Sentiments, 2 adorable Cindy and Mindy images from Jean Grant and four new Emmylou images which I have illustrated too!  You get to check out all the new stamps throughout this fabulous blog hop!! 
If you want to start from the beginning, just head over to the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge Blog.   As you hop from blog to blog, be sure to leave a comment at each and every stop to increase your chances of winning.  Three lucky stampers will be chosen randomly from all the comments posted, and they will win packages of stamps from the new release.   And when you're done hopping, be sure to head over to the Kraftin' Kimmie store, because ALL the new images are NOW available!

If you have arrived from Tara's blog, you have come to the right place.  
From here, hop on over to Melanie's blog, as she is the next stop on the hop. 

For my card: 
I coloured my Emmylou image with the following Copics:

E0000, 000, 00, 02, 11, 30, 43,  51, 93,97,99
B41, 23, 21, 26
G20, 99
BG 93, 96
Y13, 32, 23, 28
YG99
R22,39,89
T8
W4, 7
C0, 2
I had started off giving her blue stripes on her dress with the B colours listed.   But after seeing how it looked next to the designer paper I had chosen, I realized it was really out of place.  So I changed the stripes to green with a combination of Y13, YG99 and  the two greens listed.  I normally feel that mixing Copic colours does not offer the best results.  And it took a lot of work and a lot of layering to come up with the green you see here.  So I don't recommend it.  However, with a bit of time and patience, it actually worked, and one would never know the stripes had started out blue!


Special thanks to Chris for sharing the Prima flowers with me!  

Happy Hopping!
God bless you!
