Kraftin' Kimmie Abigail Apple in Copic pastels

Here's my latest Kraftin' Kimmie creation!  I LOVE a stamp with a full skirt - so much fun to colour!  And these colours are my ABSOLUTE favourite.  I have gone through two packs of this beautiful Bo Bunny Gabrielle paper.  It just suits me to a t!

I've stamped Abigail on XPress It with Memento tuxedo black.  I've antiqued the edges with distressing ink and punched her out with a Nestie. After colouring, I've added a few accents with my Sharpie Poster Paint pen and crystal glaze on the apples.  I did have to give her some eyelids and eyelashes.  The big eyes seemed too "blank" for me!



Colours:
Dress:  R17, R14, R12, R11
Apples, sash, bows:  G24, G21, G20
Hair:  E49, E29, E25, E33, E31
Basket:  E35, E34, E33
Skin:  E11, E01, E00, E000, R20, R00
Outline:  Bg10
Eyes:  B00

As mentioned, this is my fave Bo Bunny Gabrielle paper (6x6 stack).  I've used SU! Cameo Coral.  I've antiqued all the edges with distressing ink.  I've added some cute little plastic flowers I had, and some self-adhesive pearls (I LOVE these patterned ones!).  And then I've punched out various Gabrielle papers with my new My Favourite Things dies:  Die-namics Dizzy Doily, Die-namics Sweet Stack Labels, and inside I've used Die-namics Dizzy Border



To abide with Kimmie's challenge, I've decorated the inside for once!  I used some more Gabrielle paper, SU! Very Vanilla, antiqued the edges, and stamped with a quote from the SU! Asian Artistry set (I LOVE this set!).
