I love stamps and creative elements that speak to being a strong women and raising strong women. That’s why when Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps launched Fearless Farrah last year, I loved her. She’s been on my To Play With List ever since then and today I was able to check her off that list! Love that feeling!
I started by pulling paper out of my stash with a building theme. I think I bought it for when I was scrapbooking renovations on my house or cottage, but it works perfectly for this card. I used it as the base of the card.
Next, I used my Your Next Die rectangular stitched die and cut out a base for my stamped image from blue textured stock which I pop dotted onto the card.
I then stamped Farrah onto my Spectrum Noir stamping paper and coloured her in with my Spectrum Noir and Copic markers. I actually cut the stamping paper out with the same rectangular stitched die first, one size smaller. I then pop dotted the coloured image onto the blue rectangle.
Oh! One note about the pink worker’s boots: I actually own pink construction boots. They are real and they are designed in Canada by a Canadian company called Moxie Trades which specializes in construction gear for women. I also have a pink tool belt and a pink construction helmet.
I then used both blue and green baker’s twine and tied it to the centre of the card front. Before tying the knot, I added two metal embellishments, a hammer and a set of pliers, which I had purchased last year specifically with this stamp set in mind.
Next, I stamped two sentiments onto shaped cards and edged them with Distress Ink Oxides in Faded Jeans. I pop dotted them onto the layered stamped image card.
And done! One fearless awesome empowerment card for Day 18 of the Kolour It Up Challenge at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps! Whoo hoo!
Thanks for stopping by!
