Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge #23 - A Little Punchy!
This is the handsome "New Henri" from the Spring Tea Party kit, what a bunch of great stamps. Punches, or die cuts were what we had to use on this weeks challenge. I used Spellbinders oval, and scalloped nesties die cuts for the stamped image, and a Martha Stewart border bunch for the lace. I also used a Cuttlebug embossing die for the corners.
I almost had a heart attack, when I went to stamp this image and realized I had no more Neenah card stock, talk about heart palpitations. I did have some 90 lb. water color paper, so I figured I would give it a try. The one I have is kind of an off white, and not smooth. It worked, but I wouldn't recommend it. I colored the image with copics, but I found the paper sucked up the color, so it looks a little washed out.
I ended up cutting him out and using pop dots for a 3D effect. The designer paper is from Upsy Daisy Designs and its called Man About Town. The card stock is from Bazzill. The ribbons and gems are from my stash. I believe the buttons are made by Doodlebug.
Well, there you have it, I think he turned out quite good, despite the lack of Neenah card stock. Guess what I am shopping for this week-end!
