Preview #3 and Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge #38. Bows!!

Well, Hello and Happy Saturday morning to all you wonderful stampers out there.

Today, I get to show you my effort with 'Bikini Maisie', one of the adorable stamps from this release, created by Kimmie's new artist, Steven Leary. All Kimmie's team love his drawings, they are simple, yet they have character too and are really funny.

This week's Challenge is to put bows on your card. It can be a ribbon bow, bows in your paper or on your image, whatever you like as long as you use bows. I used my Copics to colour Maisie, then sponged around her with some chalk inks. I cut her out with my rectangular Nesties, then made a frame with my Scalloped Nesties. I used Groovy Guava for the frame. I pop dotted it onto some very cute Imaginisce papers, which I bought especially for these guys and the mermaid stamps. I put a strip of the striped one down the left side, tied some Groovy Guava ribbon across the bottom and made a bow. I added a couple of matching fishy brads and that's it. A fairly simple card, but I think Maisie is looking pretty snappy all by herself.

So there you have it. Now go and make something to show us with bows (or a bow) on it and you will entered for a chance to win the lovely Snow White stamp as that's the one our hostess Krista is using and she is the hostess for this week. Check out her card, it's just fabulous and so are all the other girls' creations.

I will be back again tomorrow in the Blog Hop, so be sure to come back, it's July Release Day too, so be sure to visit Kraftin' Kimmies' Stamps Shop as everything will be up on the site ready for you to get your inky little mitts on!

See you tomorrow,
