One For The Girls at KKKK

Hello Friends,

It's here again, Kenny K's Krafty Krew challenge time! I honestly don't know where the time goes, how is it March already? I can't believe that Summer has been and gone, it's only the start of the foggy mornings that makes me realise that Autumn is here.

Our theme this week is


Team A (that's me), got to use a delicious Kenny K digi stamp to meet the theme for this week and I chose to use Capt. Locke. I love this sassy image! I thought long and hard about how to colour her, and in the end I let the papers decide. I have had this gorgeous vintage-esque butterfly paper for so very long and thought it was high time I used it.

I pulled out some of my antique lace (as I so very often do!) and a scrap of aqua ribbon for embellishments. The image was coloured with copics.

I was very pleased to find a gorgeous enamel butterfly charm that fit the colour scheme perfectly.

I hope you'll come join us at Kenny K's Krafty Krew for the challenge for your chance to win some delicious prizes, including 5 digi stamps from Kenny K

Lace and Pearls at KKKK

Hello Blogging friends,

As this post goes live, I am GLUED to the TV, for tonight my long awaited television commercial goes live. If you are interested, please visit YouTube to see it. It's truly the best campaign I have ever worked on and while the ad has been on YouTube for a week tonight it debuts on national TV here in Australia. Let's hope everyone loves it as much as I do.

Anyway back to the point at hand. Today marks the start of a new challenge at Kenny K's Krafty Krew and this one seemed themed especially for me -


Any of you who have followed me for any length of time will know that lace is one of my favourite embellishments. I inherited a box of lace from my grandmother and have adored using it on many, many creations.

This image is Scarlett West and this is my second time using her. I coloured her up in purples and greys this time. She's such a fabulous image don't you think? You can find her in the Kenny K store here.

I went extra fancy with the pearls this time, with a gorgeous strip of different sizes. I hand stitched the lace with purple yarn. The sentiment is from Wild Rose Studio and was cut out using a Die-Namic label die, layered on top of some purple card stock cut out with another Die-Namic label die. I hadn't thought to only partially use these dies before, silly me!

I hope you'll join us at Kenny K's Krafty Krew for Team A's turn to inspire you. Such a talented group of designers, you must see their fantastic creations.
