The Tin Man

It's time for my last challenge as a Krafty Guest for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!  I've had such a wonderful time this month - HUGE thanks to Kim and all of the Krafty Girls for having me!!  This week, the challenge is to create a card with a spring theme.  I really wanted to get my new Tin Man image (part of the brand new Wizard of Oz inspired collection) inky, so I opted to go with some gorgeous Evangline paper by Cosmo Cricket (it's springy, right?).  I hand stitched the two pieces together to form the background panel (the grey piece at the top, and the striped below).  Then I put a long strip of the bold flower pattern on - it reminds me of the scene where they all fall asleep in the field of flowers!

I used my new Spectrum Noir markers to color the stamp.  I am seriously in love with the amazing variety of greys they offer - for this card I went with the Brown-Grey family, to match the patterned paper.  Here's a breakdown of what I used:

Body: BG5, BG4, BG3, BG2
Face: BG4, BG3, BG2, BG1
Nose: FS3, FS2
Axe: BG9, BG6, BG3 (blade: IG2, IG1)

To see the colors, check out this downloadable color chart.  There is also a blank one available, to fill in the markers as you acquire them!  Be sure to stop by the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge Blog for details on how to play along, and more inspiration from the amazing Krafty Girls.  Happy stamping!
