Kraftin Kimmies Korner card challenge entry


For this challenge we were allowed to use any style, any kind of layout that we wanted...but the key is to use black and a pastel color cardstock in your card like Kimmie did on her blog. Here is my entry for her challenge, I highly recommend going to check out her blog...you never know what you are going to find :)!

For the base of my card I decided I would use some black cardstock that I purchased from Michaels, I also got this beautiful pastel colored patterned cardstock called "Garden Floral" by "Scrapbook Walls" ( which is chalk full of pastel colors). I had a scrap piece of pink pastel colored cardstock that I had purchased from Michaels, in one of their 50 sheets of cardstock collection.
To get those jagged edges to my cardstock I used my Fiskars Rotary paper cutter with the special blade, and for my stamped image I used Penny Black's Hedgehog stamp entitled " Buzz in the air". To color in the stamped image I used Prisma colored pencils, which I need to play around with a bit more...still haven't mastered using them yet!! Let me know what you think...

I love that stamp! and what you did with it, so I just had to go visit this Kimmie, and she is amazing! I love her stuff, thanks for showing me the way.
I got one of the worst migranes today, i am not having fun at all ;P and both kids are sleeping, I am giving them both 5 mints to vent out and then I am back in their room, this time to beg them to go sleep!
