Kraftin' Kimmie Blog Hop January Release!

Today Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps is releasing their new JANUARY images!  ALL the new images are NOW available at Kraftin Kimmie Stamps!
They have SIXTEEN new stamps for you!!   
If you have landed here from Andrea's blog, you are in the right place in the hop.  
You are at the tail end of the hop with just one more stop to go.  So 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 because some lucky stampers will win packages of stamps from the new release!  
I have illustrated a collection of 5 animal images for you - a bull dog, frog family, monkey, three piggies, and this little guy, Stripes the Zebra.  I hope you like 'em!  Each animal comes with a co-ordinating sentiment stamp.  You can see them all here. 

Annie Rodrigue has created some incredibly sweet BERRY GIRLS!!  There are six images in the complete set . Each one comes with a coordinating accessory stamp AND a bonus sentiment stamp!!

We ALL have baby cards to make every year and this month, Steven Leary has brought us the most adorable BABY images!!  There are babies, teddy bears, ducks and a pair of little mice!. Two of them also come with matching sentiment stamps!!

KK Stamps offers ‘Gimme Kimmie’s Kits’ for those of you who just HAVE to have all the new images.  They've grouped each line of stamps together and called them the ‘Gimme Kimmies Kits’!!!  AND it’s at a discounted price!! 

 Next (and last) stop on the hop: Kimmie 


Card Details:
I coloured Stripes with the following Copics:
White portion of Stripes' body: E50, W1, 3, BV23 - for the deepest shadows
Black stripes and hooves: N10, 8, 5, 3, 1, blender.  On the hooves only, I left a strip un-coloured where I wanted to put a highlight.
Inner ear and muzzle: R20, 21, 22 + RV23 on pink cheek blush
Butterfly: R20, 22, 24, 27, 29, FB2, YG06, 07, FY1
Ground: E30, 31, 33 with shadows near the zebra made with C2, 3
Copic Multi-liner black was used to draw a line for the ground behind the zebra and to make dots for sand.  
Blue sky: B000 was drawn all over and then I sponged Tumbled Glass overtop to deepen the colour. 

Flowers were spritzed with Gold Smooch and the white ones with Tutti Frutti Glimmer Mist. 
Corner dies by Cuttlebug.  Main image and sentiment die by Spellbinders.  Thanks so much for visiting today!
God bless!

  35. My favourite image of the whole release. Love the way you've used black & white flowers to echo his stripes & the way you've softened his body with the buff shading. the butterfly on his nose just makes it for me & I love those bright colours contrasting with Stripes' sedate black & white. The shine on those hooves is lovely too.
    Thank you for creating such a lovely little character.
