My card today was inspired by Jo Herbert class from the Card Maker Success Summit I attended. If you missed it you can still catch up on all the classes by purchasing the VIP all access pass here . I have provided some basic instructions below, if you would like to delve further into any of the techniques you see please consider taking the class. I'm a true believer in supporting the original source!

Card Recipe:

1. Take a stitched rectangle for your main panel, on this panel I used a new water colouring technique. You could also use patterned paper here if that's your preferred method

2. Stamp your image on alcohol marker friendly card stock and coloour if your favourite medium. I'm using copics. Take a smaller stitched rectangle and die cut around your image so you don't have to fussy cut! Go ahead and stamp your sentiment in your preferred place on this panel too. I went for the fun small sentiment in this set!

Colour combination: 

Skin - E33, E31, E21, E00. Hair - E18, E15, E11. V Jumper and Hairband - BG18, BG15, BG13, BG10. Trousers - C7, C5, C3, C1. Under shirt - BV17, BV13, BV02, BV00.

3. Take some glitter/sparkle/shiny card stock from your stash. I'm using cut off scraps I get in abundance from papermill direct. I am using colours that match how I coloured my image so using a green type shiny paper that gives a subtle sparkle when hit by the light and then another strip of lighter sparkle card that is slightly smaller in width to the green one so that I can layer one of top of the other. 

There are tips in the class I took on how to get this same look if you don't own any type of sparkle/glitter card stock.

4. Layer your card pieces up using double sided sticky tape, why not add foam tape to the top layer or even 2 layers to add dimension for interest. I haven't done this here even though I had planned too (yes I forgot!) but thought I would pass the tip along anyway!

I love this stamp set, it was my first Kraftin Kimmie set I owned and felt I would finish up my month as guest designer using it. I have had so much fun, thank you everyone who has visited me during this month and taken the time to comment on my posts. I enjoy and appreciate each and every one.

Until next time, happy crafting!
