Do you want a sneaky peeky of an April Kraftin' Kimmie stamp?

Marie Antoinette is first up for my sneaky peeky's as I just couldn't wait to colour this extravagant image. I so wanted a dress like this when I was little with tons of bustle and crinolen. I had some in my wedding gown and found out how itchy it is. Mind you they wore those bloomers then so it likely helped keep them from hiking it up and scratching their legs like I wanted to do on my wedding day. I would like to clarify that I resisted that urge and did not do that, my mother would have passed out tee hee! My Marie is wearing a purple wig to match her fancy dress- fun! I really loved colouring this image and I have so many ideas floating around on what kind of cards I could use her on- invites to a fancy dinner, an oscar party or how about a murder mystery dinner? I will likely use her on a birthday card for any of my fave diva friends xoxo.
