A Girlie Piratey Card

So I recently got my first, brand spankin' new Kraftin' Kimmie stamps. I absolutely love them. They're a bit edgy, a whole lot sassy and waaaay cute. And what better motivation to ink them up than a Kraftin' Kimmie challenge.

This week's Kraftin' challenge is the Beachy Keen, Jelly Bean! (Seriously that's what it's called...) And what better image than my KK Alicia Strawberry Pirate, which was a total last minute impulse purchase by the way. Okay so for those of you that dont see train of thought let me break it down for ya - Pirates travel on pirate ships in the ocean. Then they land on beaches to raid unsuspecting towns. Well mostly I associate pirates with that scene in Pirates of the Caribbean where Jack Sparrow's stranded on the beach and drinking himself silly.

I used an old TESC sketch for the layout. I colored her up in copics, then put a bit of glossy accent on the sword. Inspired by Wicked Pixie, I altered the eyes a bit b/c I wanted to play around with coloring irises. And of course I brought out the new Delovely paper that just screams warm beachy summer days.

Here's a close-up of the yummy glossy accent goodness...

The Dets:
Stamps: Kraftin' Kimmie Alicia Strawberry Pirate, TCP Arghh! Piratey
