Welcome back for our final day of May krafty peeks! And not only do we have a fabulous new bunch of FIN-tastic stamps to share with you....it's challenge day!!
Today we are previewing a sunny new set of images and sentiments by artist, Becky Pearce!

I had so much fun creating this card... this is probably by far my most favorite card from this release. I had so much fun stamping all these adorable little ocean critters and coloring them in.

I stamped entire background by randomly laying out the stamps... I didn't follow any particular pattern.
Once my images were all colored, I then went around each one with my my Blue B00 Copic marker to add more contrast.
To finish the card off I stamped and popped up my sentiment & added some misc. sequins and rhinestones.


Check out all the adorable underwater stamps in this set called OCEANS OF LOVE!
There are so many sweet little images that you can put together and mix and match to create amazing scenes! Plus six kraken coordinating sentiments for a total of TWENTY ONE amazing stamps!

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps- Day 2 Krafty Peeks

Welcome Krafty Friends to Day TWO of our May Krafty Previews!!!
We've got lots more fabulous previews for you today!!

Today we are sharing another adorable underwater set,
this one by artist, Cheryl Grant! I think you'll WHALE-Y love it!! 
The set is called KEEP SWIMMING!! It features our cute kids Lucas and Lulu having some splish splashy fun with some underwater friends! There are FOUR main images PLUS FIVE fabby sentiments for a total of NINE awesome stamps in the set!

This set is just to cute for words, had such a blast making this one...
I took inspiration for the background for this card from my sweet crafty friend Dana Joy, from GotJoyCreations.

I used a mixture of Spectrum Noir Refill inks and some high gloss cardstock. I just dropped the ink directly onto paper and then sprayed it with rubbing alcohol, to get it to move around and get the desire effect I wanted.
I added some white glittered enamel dots from Doodlebug Design for the look of bubbles.
