Inspirational Wednesday using Ice, Ice Baby!

Good Morning and Happy Wednesday fellow krafters!!!Welcome to another Inspirational Wednesday post!


Each week one of our amazing design team members will be here to inspire you to get creative with your krafty stamps!

This week Krafty Girl, Keri is sharing her creation featuring  
Ice, Ice Baby!

I am so excited to be able to share a new creations with you today.  


I'm so happy to be here on the Kraftin Kimmie Blog today to share some inspiration with you!  I ALWAYS grab my Copic markers when I sit down to color, but today I'm using Pencils on Kraft paper!  I had so much fun trying something different and working with a different medium.  

I challenge you to grab something different.  A different color combo, a different medium or maybe just a technique you have been wanting to try.   Do IT!!  Remember, its just paper and ink (or pencils or watercolor ;) )!

I used the Tags 1 and Stitched Tags 1 from The Stamp Doctor for the sentiment.  I finished it off with sequin and glitter snowflakes.

Thanks for dropping by!
