{KKS112} Spotlight Challenge

Hi there! It's time for another challenge from Kraftin' Kimmie and today Elaine is our hostess, and she would like us to spotlight part of a KK image! I had yet to ink up Annie's Goddess Gaia and I thought that she would be a perfect candidate for this one:)

I used this earthy DP from BG (an old pack..not sure on the name, but full of greens and blues) and some MFT dienamics (fancy flourish and mini rolled roses) as well as a spellbinders fancy circle die. I kept Gaia black and white (using my warm grey copics) on purpose....who am I to say what colour Mother Earth is? And I wanted her skintone and hair not to matter in this card..I wanted the earth to stand out in colour...Get it? I think my peace and love to all mankind goes pretty darned good with the sentiment, don't you?
The colouring on my globe is seriously poor...I was having some major 'pooling' issues with the greens.....I am terrible at keeping my paper straight (I NEED to label what name it is!!!), so I very well could have been using a non-friendly copic paper here, although the greys seemed fine on it? who knows??
The earth is full of texture, so be it;) My rendition is too!

I stuck SU rhinestones in the flowers to hide the complete mess of hot-glue that I had going on! I was trying to make gorgeous flowers like my fabby friend Melissa (I'm talking about you Shorty;), but I think that must be her thing and not mine....I usually use felt for the plain reason that it is as forgiving as all get out! Paper, on the other hand, has no give. It is hard to manipulate these little suckers!! And did I mention that I'm in the clear when it comes to committing all major crimes, as I have no fingerprints left? Hot glueing isn't for sissys!

Okee dokee- check out the Kraftin' Kimmie blog for some more inspiration by my fellow Krafty Girls! And play along for your chance to win! The blog has all the deets on that as well!

Love the darker tones Jenny, really makes the earth pop out and I think the rhinestones in the flowers are perfect, cover up or not!
