THANKS FOR ALL THE INSPIRATION AND TUTORIALS, KELLY!! YOU ROCK!!
For my CASE of Kelly, I had more than enough inspiration and things I've seen her do and want to try. It was difficult choosing just three!
This one I saw first at A Day for Daisies and loved. That fairy stamp is so cool and I like how she's part of the frame with the flower.
This one is adorable and uses Lawn Fawn stamp with the funny sentiment, Alpaca My Scarf. I really enjoy how Kelly faded the stenciling here.
And this one features what I love most about Kelly's work--fabulous coloring. Now, in normal hands, this stamp is pretty, but in Kelly's hands, it's outstanding. Look at those flowers!!
Here's my CASE of Kelly. From CARD 1: I took a Day for Daisies stamp I have (Water Talk) and framed a flower (Vintage Poppies from A Day for Daisies). From CARD 2: I used a circle stencil (from Latina Crafter) that I only sponged intermittenly with Distress Ink. From CARD 3: I used my Tombow markers to flick the flowers toward the center to try for highlights like Kelly. Now, I didn't quite pull it off, but I do like how they turned out.
And to make it my own, I added Black and Xmas Red Stickles to the center of the poppies. Glitter? Really? Chark? Yes. Yes. Yes, of course! I also made her hair gray so she didn't compete too much with the poppies, plus I'm all salt and pepper now, so gray hair doesn't disturb me :)
