Kraftin' Kimmie stamps- bling it up baby!!!
























Oh Josephine.....you be all bling bling baby!!!! I am honoured to be the hostess for this week's challenge over at Kraftin' Kimmie stamps. Click here to go to the blog and read more details and see what the dt has created this. Can you say eye candy! These ladies are soo talented I am honoured to be on a team with them. If you would like a chance to win Josephine yourself all you have to do is follow the challenge details and use sparkles, glitter...anything with bling! And don't forget to add the keywords KKSC10 if you upload your creation to an online gallery, so we can all see them!!

Quick details for this card. I used Basic Grey DP, May Arts Ribbon, lace, crystals, copics and I paper pieced the skirt. Funny story--now---.. I paper pieced the skirt first then I was colouring sweet Josephine. My E00 ran out and I had to refill it. No problem..refilled and started colouring again THEN apparently I over-filled the marker and it threw up extra ink all over my image. After spending 30 mins paper piecing it I was devastated. I then had the idea to cut out the skirt and and glue into on top of my newly stamped image. So I paper pieced what I had originally paper pieced lolz!!! I then painstakingly added glue section by section to the fumes coming out of her potion bottle and added the different colours of glitter. The card took awhile to make but I am happy with how it turned out.

I hope you like Josephine- she's one of my absolute favourites!! Take care and enjoy the creations today!
