Welcome to Day One of this month's Kraftin' Kimmie previews! All of the new May stamps will be available on Sunday May 15th. For links to all of today's gorgeous samples from the Krafty Girls and Guests, you'll definitely want to pop over to the Kraftin' Kimmie challenge blog.
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps is thrilled to introduce a new artist to the mix....her name is Cheryl Alger! You may recognize her name from Sassy Cheryl's where she creates digital art. Cheryl is creating a brand NEW line of images, specifically for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! These stamps will ONLY be available at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and ONLY as unmounted rubber stamps! Now here's a bit about Cheryl!I grew up outside of Staunton, Virginia, but now live in the Richmond, Virginia. I absolutely LOVE to draw and always carry a small sketchbook with me in case inspiration strikes me while I'm out and about. I have been creating digital art now for about 12 years now and have licensed my work to companies such as Kohl's, Hobby Lobby and Shopko, among others, for over eight years. I started creating digital images about two years ago. It's been a lifelong dream to become a working artist, and besides deadlines, I LOVE everything about what I do! It really helps that I have a very supportive husband and son (they also can be my biggest critics!). I have to admit. I LOVE my job!
Today I chose to use Cheryl's Little Summer Boy! He comes with this incredibly cute sentiment as well. This image reminds me so much of my son - especially that mischievous little smirk on his face! I sponged around the image with some Memento Tangelo ink and paired it with some My Mind's Eye Stella Rose papers. I also paper pieced his swim trunks and added some felt waves and some orange twine. The layout comes from Karen's Sweet Sunday sketch challenge (which I of course flipped).
Guess what? Kimmie is giving away a whole pack of Cheryl's new stamps! All you have to do is leave comments as you visit the Krafty Girls and Guests and one winner will be chosen at random and announced on the challenge blog tomorrow!
I hope you enjoy today's peeks, and I'll see you back here tomorrow for more! Thanks for stopping by.
