Bring on the sparkle

Hello Everyone!

I have yet another canvas to share with you! I have been hanging out on the Kraftin Kimmie Facebook group as of late, and one of the challenges this week was to use a stencil.

I knew I wanted to use Glimmer paste and a snowflake stencil to make a textured background. So I broke out an Ampersand Clay Canvas and got to work adding colour to the background with distress oxide ink. These canvases are amazing for taking in colour and soon I had a vibrant base.

I then first added Versa Mark through the snowflake stencil to make clear embossed snowflakes… I liked the look, but they were a bit to subtle, so I opened my glimmer paste and added it over the snowflake stencil for a second layer. I then let this dry.

I had coloured up Angelica Angel in a new favourite colour combo with my Copics giving her a Knock Out purple dress.

Skin: E000, E01, E11, E04 blush: R32 Dress: V04, V15, V17, V09 hair: E50, E21, E53, E55 Leaves G21, G05 Wings: BG10 bird (not coloured here but coloured on finish project) BG10, BG15

I then added stardust Stickles to her wings, and in small little dots on her dress and around her (because every little angel needs a bit of sparkle)

Lastly I heat embossed a Kraftin Kimmie sentiment from Evangeline Angel Set, and glued her on top of a die cut heart. I then added sequins and Nuevo Crystal Drops.

I am gifting this to my Nana as a Christmas gift that she can hang up in her house.

Lots of hugs,


Do Mermaids send wish lists to Santa?

Hello Everyone,

Stephen on the Kraftin Kimmie Stamp Facebook page challenge us to use non-Christmas stamps/ Non-winter theme stamps to make a winter/ Christmas project.

I thought it was a perfect time to use a stamp I coloured in the summer on a Christmas project. I have always adored the gleeful expression on Serena Sparkles, she reminds me of a super excited child waiting to open her presents on Christmas morning. Maybe that is why I coloured her up in kind of a Christmas palette.

my concept was that Santa was delivering Christmas presents by floating them down to her in bubbles. So after using distress oxides and a bit of stenciling on this Ampersand Clayboard tile, I placed assorted Christmas stickers on the background, then used glossy accents to make the bubbles.

I heat embossed the sentiment at the top, then popped up Serena and added her Christmas Tree, presents, and a Xmas wish list.

-stamp: Serena Sparkles by Annie Rodrique for Kraftin Kimmie (retired)
