Hi everyone! I have just popped on quickly from a different computer to share my Kraftin Kimmie Challenge card with you :) We will have internet on Tuesday so hopefully everything is back to normal by then!

The challenge this week is Backgrounds. A while back I tried my hand at Barbara's underwater colouring technique and I thought I would give it another shot. I love the effect of this....I want to do a whole bunch as a mini series :)


The image is Nerissa and the background is Make it Crafty Coral Border. I used A LOT of copics lol!! Here they are:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R11
Hair: R22, R29, R46, R9
Tail: Green BG49, G17, G02, G00, G000 Yellow Y11, Y15, Y17, E33
Sand: E40, E41, E43, E47
Orange: YR000, YR02, YR07
Purple: V000, V01, V04, V09

Don't be scared by the challenge this week....there are a whole load of background stamps around to practice with! I know it is scary but trust me it is fun :) xx

  33. Alyce, I'm speechless, Outstanding! I think I missed Barbara's underwater coloring technique but my friend I know you have mastered it. Could not tell what you used as bubbles??? Your card just exposes with all those stunning color, love how you made a shadow by her. You should do a video on how to capture that water look.
