KKS: August Peeks, You’re a Hoot!

20748314_10155351955291014_4810078172419417524_oHappy weekend!!!!  Have you been following the Kraftin Kimmie peeks the past few days??  Fun goodies, huh?!  Today the Krafty Girls & Guests are peeking a super cute new set from Melissa called, YOU'RE A HOOT!  But before I get on to that, today is also the KKS Anything Goes Challenge, and I'm this week's hostess!  Grab your stamps (we'd love to see your Kraftin Kimmie stamps, but as long as you get crafty we wanna see!!!) and come play along!!!  You can link up your creation on the KKS Blog!  Now back to new stuff… For my peek, I made a bookmark, I honestly needed a NEW one, lol!

20170811_154641So I started off with a Tim Holtz tag, I could die punched a tag, but I was too excited and antsy to get to the next step, lol.  Next I used some Nuvo Embellishment Mousse, in Cornflower Blue.  OH MY GOSH, this stuff is fabulous!  Anyway, I dry brushed on my tag making a kind of woven texture look.  I ran 2 strips of Washi across the bottom, both in a Coral and Gold Shimmer (it's kind of hard to make the colors out in the photo).  Then I colored the books with Copics, but I paper pieced the owls.  I couldn't resist those HUGE eyes, so I stamped them again in white and added some cool gray shadows, then cut them out.  Those pieces are just adhered flat onto the tag.  The sentiment is from BETSY BOOKLOVER. stamped in black.  Because of the Mousse background it muted the black ink some, which was perfect!  Tie on a small handful of ribbons on the top and BOOM!  Pretty bookmark!

Well, that's all I've got for ya, below is a photo of the full set.  And now it's time for you to "hop along", lol.  Happy Hoppin'
