Crafty friends are the best! It's a wonderful thing to have a friend with whom you can spend a 'crafter-noon' being creative and social. My card features stamp sets by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and colouring with Prismacolor pencils on kraft.
Putting It Together
I was originally thinking of doing the krafty girl as a single layer card but then thought of the Oh, Crop! set and thought they would go together like bread and butter. Oh, and I didn't start out with a plan to use every Kimmie ink that's been released so far, but... well.. it happened *laugh*
I stamped on kraft with Terrific Taupe.
I coloured the krafty girl with Prismacolour pencils keeping track of the ones I used on a bit of scrap. I love the look of coloured pencils on kraft. Oh, and why red hair? I dunno. It just happens :) I like the red hair blends. I sometimes wish I could find an auburn shade dye that looks good on me.
I used the little images from the Oh, Crop set to so a multi-stamp background using nearly every colour of ink of the currently released colours. Before I started stamping them, I used the inside of the die I used to trim the krafty girl to draw in the negative space that would be under her. I didn't need to put any of the stamps in that space but did want to make sure some would be partially peeking out from under her.
I dry fit the krafty girl on the background and actually let out a bit of a squeee! I think the variety of colours is just perfect, too.
I adhered everything flat to a white card base adding a sentiment in a diamond.
Inside, I added a sentiment from each set along with the heart and hashtags from Oh, Crop.
