Seize the Sketch: Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps

Hello!

Here's our newest challenge:

STS#11


This awesome sketch is by my fabulous teamie, Jen.

PRIZE ALERT: The winner for this challenge will receive their choice of “3 single stamps from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

I had the opportunity to play with a part of a new December release:



In an effort to work on my 2014 crafty goal, I tried a new to me technique, Spotlighting.  I stamped the image in Fresh Ink Provincial Gray.  I stamped it again on a scrap piece of watercolor paper and used circle dies to cut out a portion of the image.  I colored it and backed it with a larger black circle and adhered it to the panel.  I glammed up it up by added some Neat & Tangled sequins.

To tie together the spotlighted portion and the remainder of the card, I added the Basic Grey wood button.

I can't wait to see how you're inspired!

Be sure to check out the Seize the Sketch blog to see how my teamies were inspired!
