Kraftin' Kimmie in the Spotlight!

I finally got a chance to play along with a Kraftin' Kimmie challenge, #112, "In the Spotlight". I have never done the spotlight technique though I've done something similar where I match up layers of patterned paper, so I figured that I might as well go for it. Since I was doing challenges, I also used Splitcoast's Sketch Challenge #369.

I was inspired by my very sweet and talented friend, Cheryl, who recently colored a very effective and striking monochromatic grayscale card.

In fact, Charlotte, a Kraftin' Kimmie Annie Rodrigue stamped image, was sent to me as a gift by Cheryl, when I asked her to stamp a few images of Drucilla, who is stabbing a voodoo doll and send 'em to me. I *needed* this image for a special circumstance. Sadly, the voodoo did not work, but maybe one day "Karma" will. Anyway, I guess she didn't want the voodoo girl to be alone on her airplane trip, so she sent along a few other stamped images. Cheryl is soooo nice and considerate.

One day I hope to get some KK stamps, but that'll have to wait for a bit until I'm gainfully employed. Or get some money. Or both.

Anyways, I used the Toner Gray Copic markers for the majority of the image, then matched the colors from the Ooh La La 6x6 pad by My Mind's Eye. The sketch was a fun one to do since it involved a whole lot of layering of patterned papers, which is always fun for me!

Thanks for visiting today!

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
