{KKS} Lulu Previews!

Hi there! I'm so excited, as today is our first day of Kraftin' Kimmie new release previews:) Today we are showcasing the new Lulu set by Cheryl Alger....sooooo sweet and perfect for spring!!


I used Lulu with her little watering can....she is coloured up with copics, and I added glaze to her watering can. I grew in some grass under her feet. I added some white paint to her hair baubles for some dimension, and gave her freckles with a wine multiliner.


I used my new MFT flower dienamic to make the flower embellie and tied the PTI button off with a brown twine bow with twine from the Ribbon Carousel. I embossed the pink panel with a Sizzix folder, which kind of cut through the dp...now, normally that would frusterate me, but for the gardening theme, I think it looks just fine:) Oh, and I hope you love all the new MME paper as much as me, because I used it on 3 out of 4 of my previews this week!! haha!


Here's a close-up of little Lulu...


And the sentiment stamped on the inside:


See the Krafty Blog for a list of participating designers today! And don't forget to comment for your chance to win the new Lulu set!
See you tomorrow with another preview and ISSC!
