So I know it has been just over a week since my last post but I haven't forgotten about updating it....I will be doing that tomorrow.  I had a few things come up this week and just haven't had the chance.  I did get another couple of cards made this week and will post them later.  I really wanted to take part in the Kraftin' Kimmie guest challenge so I am going to post that card today.

For this challenge it was pretty much anything goes but, you did have to use a Kraftin' Kimmie stamp of your choice and some sort of metallic embellishment, paper or colour.  Well since I do have lots of Kimmie stamps it was a challenge to decide which one to use.  I decided to make my DH's Valentine's day card for this challenge.  I coloured Artemis with copics (will post colour list as soon as I find it in the mess on my desk...LOL).  I added a bit of red stardust pen to her hair piece but it doesn't show up in the picture.  I decided to go with a pewter metallic colour and used papers that picked up on both the red and pewter,  they are from the My Mind's Eye Lost & Found 3 "Ruby" collection.  I then added a few pewter brads and a pewter heart charm.  I edged all the pieces with red versa magic chalk ink and popped the main image up using 3d dots.

Update (Jan 21/13) ... Ok I  cleaned up my desk and found the elusive copic colour list...I really must learn to always have my notebook handy.  Anyway here is the list for Artemis (E000, 00, 01 - R 20, 22, 24, 27, 29 - Y21, 23, 26 - B000 - E71, 74, 77 & 79).  I am also trying to use a variety of patterned papers on projects. I have so much patterned paper and I really need to use some of it up. My other goal is to ink up all my new stamps and use them for projects...with the amount of new stamps I have I'm going to be very busy.  

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week everyone!!!
