Playing Favorites

This week’s Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps challenge is to use your favorite Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps image. This was a tough one! After a little hemming and hawing, I finally decided on the Moonlight Whispers Miss Information image for my card. As a teacher, I’m a sucker for school themed images! I paired her with the current Deconstructed Sketch for this card.

I stamped Miss Information on a white panel and colored her with Copic markers. Usually I use red—I seem to lean towards that for my school-themed designs—but here, I went with a totally different aqua/gold/gray color combination. The colored panel is set on a gray mat with a scalloped edge along one side.

I covered the aqua card base with a multicolored plaid patterned paper, then attached two coordinating dotted aqua strips along the left side of the cardfront. The image panel is layered over the panels. I attached a strip of golden yellow grosgrain ribbon to the cardfront, overlapping the image panel just a bit. The ribbon strip is accented with a sparkly chipboard star and a twine tied button.
