I have been waiting and waiting for September to arrive. I have been in a a wee secret- that this month's KKS release was going to have some pin-up girls. I ADORE pin-up girls. I am not 100% sure but I vaguely recall seeing calendars in my Grandpa's garage that I loved to explore in. As nothing was ever thrown out you can imagine all the treasures I found including old calendars. The stuff I found which was 'garbage' back then would be so super cool now! And speaking of cool...the ladies that Annie drew for us this month are mind blowing and truly capture that bygone era Kimmie was looking for....and what I was hoping they would look like too hee hee! And over at the challenge blog...well see for yourself the crazy incredible cards the DT have made!
My first sample is using Jayne- one of my fave names actually. I have to say I am proud of how I coloured her. I had a private quick lesson recently from an artist on how to make my shading deeper and I am using it more and more. I haven't yet braved into the purple's and red's she wanted me to use on skin but I am getting there. I feel like an 'artiste' colouring these ladies and they are soooo easy and fun to colour!
The other reason's I have been waiting for this month's release is that I also love Fall (don't hurt me Summer lovers please) and we have Miles getting his Fall Funk on! You may see him on your blog hopping for sneaky peeky's today. And this month's set of sentiments- FANTASTIC!!! All geared towards being Thankful. Love it!
And...if there is any such thing as segue music please cue it now :). The PRC challenge this week is to make a sweet and simple card. I used some of the new KKS Thankful sentiments that will be available Sunday at KKS and ALSO at Paper Romance! Here is my card below.
Phew- can you tell I am loving this month! Also I usually make up my samples last minute..I know I know...FOR SHAME ANDREA!!! But I have had these done for awhile now I was so excited to get at them.
I hope I got your mojo pumping and to get it going further hop over to the PRC challenge blog to read the deets on the sweet and simple card challenge and how you can play to win a $5 gift card to Paper Romance. It can be used to buy some of these new KKS stamps among other amazing stuff *wink wink*:) Andi xoxo
