Karma's Helper

Here's some music to listen to as you read this entry!



When I saw this stamp, Drucilla by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, I giggled like a maniac. I asked around to see if any of my friends had it and could stamp a few images for me. The lovely and talented Cheryl stepped up. If you don't know her work, check out her blog (linked),then come back, and thank me!

Things have been a bit chaotic lately and I've been experiencing a fair amount of schadenfreude, so I decided it was time to color Drucilla and put her on a card. While I was coloring, I was singing Bad Karma by the late and great Warren Zevon.

I figured why not enter a Kraftin' Kimmie challenge? Voila, like magic, a sketch challenge appeared.

Here's the sketch:


Here's my take on the sketch, though I did flip it a bit and fudged some sizes, but after all, sketches are for inspiration, no?


Drucilla was colored with Copic markers. It's not my best, but it doesn't suck. Plus, I don't have many images, so I'll clearly need to purchase this stamp. All the patterned papers are from Cosmo Cricket and are fairly old. Gotta love using up stash!

I was playing around with sentiment ideas when "Karma's helper" came to my mind, so I used glitter stickers to spell it out. Then the card still needed something, so I die cut a ribbon slider heart, added ribbon, and three pins. Now whoever I send this to will have the tools for the job, though I suppose I'll have to craft a Voodoo doll for them too!

Thanks for visiting today!

I shall enter this card in the following challenges:
Kraftin' Kimmie Challenges
Outlawz Copic/Promarker Friday "Inspired by books, movies, and songs" challenge. though the card actually inspired the song in my head.
