Get in Gear!

I was in a bit of a Pirate mood the other day, but when I pulled out my Pirate Kimmie Stamps, this little cutie asked me to please stamp her instead! This is Lavinia, a Steampunk darling from Kraftin' Kimmie! This was from one of her very first releases and I still LOVE her!

I dressed Lavinia up in some lovely SteamPunk Debutante papers from Graphic 45. I even added a few ears in the corners with the cute gear stamp that comes with Lavinia.

This weeks Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge is "Text Me" and I used the text papers from the paper line for the main panel. The layout is based on this weeks CPS sketch Challenge, which Kimmie just happens to be sponsoring!

For the center strip I used a Tim Holtz border die, spritzed with lots of Glimmer Mist and then rubbed with Metallic chalks.

After I colored Lavinia with Copics, I also used some of the metallic chalks on her too. I used a tiny paint brush to get it on her dress and goggles.
