Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps August Release Preview Day 3 & Spooky Challenge!

We’re sharing more peeks at the new Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps release today!  More Halloween fun, PLUS a challenge!  As it’s Saturday, it’s time for a new Kraftin’ Kimmie Challenge, and the theme is perfect (almost like it was planned 😉 ) – create something with a SPOOKY theme!

The new release will be available direct from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps in Canada AND from Quixotic Paperie in UK/Europe on Sunday 21st August 2011.

Today the Krafty Girls are previewing the new images from Krafty Artist – Annie Rodrigue.   Once you’ve checked out my card below, pop on over to the Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps Blog to find out who else has a peek to share.  Hop around and leave some comments because TWO lucky commenters will win three of Annie’s new stamps from the release (see the KKS blog for full details)!

Plus this week’s challenge winner will win their choice of stamp from the Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps range!  Plenty of chances to win this week, so get stuck in!

On my card today I am featuring “Mr Punkinhead”.  Now, can anyone guess what my favourite film might be? 😉

Coloured with Copic Markers on Make it Colour Blending Card.  The fantastic designer paper is from the Echo Park Apothecary Emporium 6×6 pad (also available in 12×12).  Bow tied with the Bow-Easy template and accented with a brad.

I distressed all the edges with Distress Ink – Soot Black.  Not thrilled with the way it turned out around the image, but hey-ho, that’s what you get for being heavy handed!

That’s all from me today!  Hope you’ve enjoyed the previews.  Check in tomorrow for the big release day hop!

    Loving this card. The web paper is spookalicious. I quite like the darker edges, it makes him look as if he is glowing. Inspiring as always. BOO-tiful job. Sorry couldn’t resist, lol.

    I don’t agree, I really like the creepy feel you get from the darker edges of the image. Love the “two-faced” character of the background!
