{KKS140} Out of the Box

Time for another Krafty Challenge with Kraftin' Kimmie. This weeks challenge is hosted by the lovely Kerry and she wants us to use the 'out of the box' technique! This is kind of a fun technique that I use every so often (usually when I want to use a nestie that my image doesn't fit nicely inside of;) Something hanging out of the perfect circle can now look intentional!!!

I inked up Miss Marina, colouring her with copics and adding stickles to her tail, barettes and top, as well as her fishy friend;) The sentiment is hilarious and it's from the Mermaid Sentiments set....


I masked Marina with masking tape, and airbrushed behind her. You know when rays of light penetrate through water and there can be that stunning rainbow effect? Well, thats kind of what I was going for here! lol! Try to picture snorkelling in the tropics somewhere, not the murkey lakes of central Alberta;) The pics really don't do it justice- it looks so cool IRL! Ha!


Some yummy lavendar ribbon from the Ribbon Carousel and Prima resin flowers add some flair:)

If you would like to play along this week, please link up your cards on the Krafty Challenge Blog HERE, and be entered for a chance to win a new KK stamp!!

We often seek something with more edges and surfaces than a couple of words can express.
