Kraftin' Kimmie May Preview........Day 3 (Plus a Challenge)

How much are you lovin' the MAY preview from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps?

It's day THREE of the peeks and we have another amazing set to show off for your today from THAIS. This fun summer set is called UNDER THE SEA.

Of course it's also Saturday and that means it's time for another fun Kraftin' Kimmie weekly CHALLENGE. The hostess for this week is Sharon and her challenge is ANYTHING GOES! So grab a new or favourite Kraftin' Kimmie image and create a card, layout or altered item for this weeks' challenge. You can use any theme, style,'s ANYTHING GOES, with a Kraftin' Kimmie image!

Sound fun? Of course it does. Remember to show off your Krafty designs over at the Kraftin' Kimmie blog. If you play along you have a chance to WIN a $10 Gift Certificate towards something fabulous in the shop!

I had a lot of fun with the UNDER THE SEA set. I used paper from Echo Park Summer Bliss and A Perfect Summer and embellished the card with natural twine (Recollection), cheese cloth, and sea shells (from my daughter's stash)!

To create dimension, I stamped my image twice. Using the Tim Holtz ink blending tool, I applied  distress ink on the background layer for my sky (salty ocean) and water (peacock feathers). For the top layer, I coloured the image with Copic markers then fussy cut and adhered it to the background layer using foam adhesive. To create the look of water, I applied a thin layer of Glossy Accents.

Inside the card I stamped two additional images and sentiments from the Under the Sea set.

Check out all of the Krafty Girls listed below to see their creations featuring these amazing stamps in the UNDER THE SEA set by Thais. Be sure to leave comments while you are hopping because you could WIN this stamp set! (The winner for today's hop will be announce later this week).
