Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge #15: Aperture Cards

Time for another Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps challenge

This week the challenge has been set by Melanie Holtz, and she would like to see Aperture Cards!

As you can see, I’ve gone for a very simple card.  Not even any stitching! *shock horror*  I didn’t want to distract too much from the gorgeous image, and the delicious DCWV La Creme papers.  The aperture was of course created with my Nestabilities.

Charlotte has been coloured with Copics, and the list today is very simple: W00, W1, W2, W3, W5, W7, W8

You can buy Charlotte HERE (or via the Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps site if you are in Canada/US).  The adhesive crystals are available HERE.

That’s all from me, but do stop by the Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps challenge blog and check out the samples from the rest of the team!  And of course, we’d love to have you play along with us!

    I love your card, must try the black and white idea looks fab. I received this stamp and three others from you this week and am just off to upload onto my blog. Have had a go and made one card with each so far. Really pleased with them all. Many thanks for very prompt service and the inspiration too.
