Challenge 136 - My Favourite Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp!

This weeks Kraftin' Kimmie Blog Challenge was such a tough one!  We were asked to make a card with our favourite Kraftin' Kimmie stamp.  How do I choose just one?!  I use the Annie Rodrigue stamps almost exclusively as I LOVE to colour.  After MUCH consideration, I chose Voodoo Lady.  I have only coloured her once before for a Christmas Card (yeah, I'm unconventional like that) and have been wanting to colour her again.

In other super exciting news, Kraftin Kimmie posted a Guest Designer Call on their blog!!  I have been working on my submission card and will just die if I get the spot.  There is some tough competition out there, namely my bff and fellow stamper Aaemie Ali.  Wish me luck!

Challenge 135 - White on White

I jumped head first into this week's Kraftin' Kimmie Blog Challange.  I have wanted to do a white on white card for some time but never worked up the nerve.  I also tried no-line colouring for the first time.  

I LOVE how both turned out!  It is certainly a challenge to only use white paper but it forced me to get really creative and use my neglected embossing folders.  

I also think that I have produced the best colouring I have ever done and am very pleased with how the card turned out.  

I am SUPER excited for the Kraftin' Kimmie Guest Designer call and can't wait to get started on my submission!

I don't know how to take off that white highlighting as it is so random but maybe I'll figure it out soon.  At the very least, I've listed my supplies like a real card maker :)
