Genevieve the Traveller

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all having a good week. I am actually managing to post a card during the week. I am not feeling well, so since I'm not up to doing much else, I did take some time yesterday to make another Kraftin' Kimmie card. This is Genevieve, she is one of the Steampunk line of stamps, released this month. It looks like she is ready to go somewhere on an adventure. She even comes with a little map as her accessory stamp, isn't it cute?

I used Cricut Celebrations patterned paper, three different pieces of it. I used Wild Wasabi for the card base (I am almost out of it and it's discontinued, what am I going to do, I love it?). I coloured Genevieve on watercolour paper, using my S.U. markers, set the little map in the corner, I stamped it on Marigold Morning. I also used Marigold Morning to mat the main patterned paper onto. I used my new S.U. border punch and put a strip of M.M. across the center, then put some eggplant GG ribbon across the strip. I used my small oval punch for the sentiment, which is from the Kraftin' Kimmie Steampunk Sentiments. I put a couple of flowers in the upper right corner, fastened them with orange gem brads and that's it.

Now I have to make a card for this Saturday's Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge. Make sure you come back to see what it is.

Blessings to you all,
