AHSC #566-Safari Fun!

 Ready to get sketchy? 

Let's have some Safari Fun!

I've created a larger size card - 6.5" x 5" - to fit in all the elements from the sketch.  

Safari Fun (Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps) is inked using wicked black (Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps) and coloured with Copic markers  I also coloured the background using copics with edges ink distressed (Blue Bay & Mossy Meadow - Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps)

Die cut circle is popped up onto patterned papers from Little Explorer (Echo Park) and neutral burlap ribbon.  I've added a few enamel dots from my stash for embellishments.

Be sure to play along with us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge & link up your project here

We've got a brand new Krafty Stencil for this month's release to help add some funky flair to your creations!  

It is called....

Layers of Eggs!

And.... if you need it all... 

And don't forget our awesome Stamp Of The Month!! We have the fabulous I Pick You stamp, which is FREE with your order of $75 or more before shipping/taxes all month (while supplies last!)

I'm playing with the awesome Layers of Eggs stencil & New Beginnings sentiment. 

I dry embossed both layers of the stencil and sanded the texture to expose the white core of the cardstock.  The stencil has such great detail.  I then heat embossed the sentiment using Wow white with a pocket panel.
