Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #48


Hello again! Today is the start of a new challenge at Paperbabe Stamps and we have a beautiful Picture Inspiration for you! 


You can take inspiration from the colours, the flowers, shapes... as you wish! Here is my make based on the picture:


Stamp: Paperbabe Stamps Mayleedee
Colouring: Zig and Polychromos on Canson Monval

I've kept things very simple, stamped my Mayleedee on watercolour paper and added a few flowers to make a scene. I watercoloured everything using Zig Clean Color Real Brush and used my Polychromos for Mayleedee's hair mostly. 

We hope you'll be able to join us HERE! Thank you very much for your visit, have a fab day! Hugs,

 Hello everyone! Welcome to our April Release Peeks of amazing new spring stamp sets at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps

The first stamp set we are sharing with you might look a little familiar because you may have seen a little peek of this gorgeous new set by artist Annie Rodrigue! 
It just happens to be the Secret Krafty Klub stamp set that we sent out to members for February! It's SNOW WHITE!


What a precious scene of this sweet princess with her woodland friends! It's a beautiful big image to colour up along with three sweet new sentiments! And think of the fabulous scenes you could make with clouds and grass and some background dies and stamps! 

Here is my card for today:)


Stamps: Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Snow White
Colouring: Copics on Make it Colour Blending Card
Die: Lawn Fawn

This stamp definitely screams for scenes, so I had to create one ;)! I stamped and coloured my Snow White in Copics, adding grass and a background. The die I used is by Lawn Fawn and I coloured it in Copics too, then put it on foam for a bit of dimension.


All the Krafty Team and Guests listed below have lots of joyful designs to share with SNOW WHITE!
