Mimosa Hat - Bildmalarna

Today I have a lovely little image for you from Bildmalarna called Tossa Hat you can find her here on my website.  I coloured Tossa about 3 weeks ago and in my haste to clean up my work space I misplaced the Copic colours I used on the card.  I'm thinking they look like RV's to me for the pink and likely E31, E33 & E34 for the brown tones.  So sorry I will try not to do that again.  I thought you might like to see her anyway even though I don't remember the colours.

Mimosa Artist - Bildmalarna

I finished this card about a week ago but I'm just getting around to posting her now.   This is Mimosa Artist from Bildmalarna and I really think one of my favourites.  I was going for a soft look with this card and I really wanted to use blue and beige so this is what I came up with.

Sir Galahad - Kraftin' Kimmie

I'm not too sure about all of you but I always have such a difficult time coming up with masculine cards.  Recently however I brought the Kraftin' Kimmie stamps in for my on-line store which I think are just awesome.  There are so many stamps that are perfect for the manly kind of guy and Sir Galahad is no exception.  I chose this one because not only did I love the saying that comes with it but I thought it would be a perfect card for my husband for our anniversary...which is not till October but I had the idea for the card now so I'm done and ahead of the game.

Here is a close up of Sir Galahad:

Skin - E000, E00, E01

I used T1 with my air compressor to shade around Sir Galahad.  I also used silver baubles, Juneberry & Flinstone Bazzill cardstock, my distress tool & rectangle Nestabilities.
