Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge #15: Peek-A-Boo

Hi All,

I spotted THIS challenge over on the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps blog, and thought it would be fun!  Guest Krafty Girl Melanie has challenged everyone to make a window card!  I don't have much experience with these, but here we go...

My card base is Soft Suede, and on the front, there is a layer of Crushed Curry, punched at the bottom with a Martha Stewart edge punch.  The Suede and Curry layers were cut with Classic Oval Nesties.  I used my colour spirtzer tool from SU, as well as Crushed Curry and Soft Suede markers, and splattered colour all over the front of the card.  I also added a row of self-adhesive nail heads (purchased from Gina K) to the left side.  I tied some Soft Suede polka dot ribbon around the base, as well as a knot of Linen Thread.  I stamped the words "he he..." from Kimmie's Sassy Sentiments in Soft Suede ink.  I stamped the frame from Lola DaVinci on Neenah Solar White CS in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and coloured it in with my Blender Pens and Watercolor Wonder Crayons in grays and browns.  I cut that out and mounted it on the front with Dimensionals.

Let's open up the card.  I added a window sheet to the inside top, and covered it with a piece of Dusty Durango CS, also punched with Oval Nesties.  On the inside bottom, I stamped Lola DaVinci in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Neenah Solar White CS and coloured her with Copic markers.  I also stamped the frame again, but coloured it with bright, fun Copic colours this time.  I added another nail head to the top of the frame.  I drew in a floor and walls with a black marker, and sponged some Soft Suede ink on the floor - it just helps when your characters aren't always floating in space!  I stamped "Girls Gone Wild" from the same set of sentiments in black ink.

In my opinion, she's a pretty cute character! Great challenge!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
