Samantha- Sketch at A Creative Romance

Happy Friday everyone!  I'm here with my DT post  for A Creative Romance and for this challenge we want you to follow a sketch. The lovely Becky has made a very easy sketch for us to follow so for once I finished my card pretty quickly.

This is what I made for inspiration.  This is my first time using Kraftin Kimmie stamps, but it certainly won't be my last, as this was extremely fun to colour.  Tracy at Dies to Die,  for has all her Kraftin Kimmie stamps on sale right now, you can pick them up really cheaply!

This was one of those cards that almost made itself.  I had Becky's Setch to follow, and I knew I wanted to use this stamp which I just recently got....Samantha, love her and such a great image to colour. Then I spotted a photo inspiration challenge at Kraftin Kimmie Stamps

and that was that. I found paper and embellies in my hoard that this photo inspired me to use, coloured her up to match and I was off and running....card made in double quick time lol.

Copic colours used:
Skin: E0000, 000, 00, 11, R20, 00
Hair: E50, 53, 31, 35
Clothes and lipstick: W0, 3, 5, 7, R32, 35, 37, 56
I used Lots of Stickles in gold on her eyelids, compact and shoes.

I used some gold embossing powder around the edges of my card and the frame, the bling is Prima. The shape is made with a Go Create Frilly Frames die.

These fab papers are MME Lost and Found - Record It. The sentiment comes with the stamp.
The crushed silky ribbon is from the Ribbon Girl. The red heart button and black lace is from my stash.

So I hope I've inspired you a little and that you'll join in with our challenge, do go check out the rest of the DT work here, they're just gorgeous!
