Hello friends! Happy weekend to you!
I sure hope wherever you are is warmer than
what we are experiencing in Montana.
Thursday evening it was -36 degrees F w/wind chill.
It's supposed to be warmer today but barely above 0.
The cold weather makes for a great excuse to stay
inside and get crafty! Speaking of which...
it's the final day of the February release sneak peek
previews for KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS
and the start of a new weekly challenge.
The theme is ANYTHING GOES (as it always
is during release week). So link up and join
us this week - we love to see what you make!
I can hardly wait to show you the stamp set for the final
day of our peeks. It's by our own Krafty Gal artist
Allison Cope and it's called FUNNY FISHES
Just look at all these fun images and punny sentiments!!!
As soon as I saw this set my brain immediately went
to an aquarium. Never having made such a thing
before it was quite a crafty trial and error endeavor
but I'm happy with how it turned out.
I used some silver foil card stock around the edges
and a piece of window sheet to create the front panel
of the aquarium. I colored the bottom piece with a
black copic marker for the base.
The scene inside was created with the new
Aqua Adventure hybrid ink. I splashed a few drops of
the ink refill on my gelli plate and then smooshed my
paper on that. When that dried, I sponged over the
Rocky Road stencil (released last month) toward
the bottom and lightly about half way up the panel.
Then I took the mini ink cube and just randomly
pressed it down on the panel. As a last step I
spritzed a bit more of the ink on the gelli plate
and misted it with water and put the paper back
down on it. The images and rocks on the bottom
were all stamped in the Granite Grey ink and then
colored with copic markers. I used some Nuvo
glitter spray in green apple on the chipboard
pieces (part of the special February Add ON bundle)
to make it look like the floating greenery in the tank.
It's really shimmery in real life but unfortunately
just did not photograph well at all - quite bummed!
Here's a closer look from a different angle.
Here's a look too at the special February Add On bundle
It's a great compliment to this month's stamp sets and themes.
