Monique Bookmark

If you are looking for my TGF WCW post just scroll down a bit :0)

I recently got my first two Kraftin Kimmie stamps from All That Scraps and here is the second cutie I ordered...Monique! This girl has attitude and is SO much fun to color.   I made this bookmark for my friend who loves purple and green. 

I have to give credit to Melanie (the best Copic colorist, seriously!) because I sat in front of her picture of Monique when I was trying to color this.  Boy do I have a ways to go, lol!

I'm entering it in the following challenges:
1) Kraftin Kimmie - ABC (anything but a card)
2) All That Scraps - embossing

Monique is one of my all time fave KK stamps and I'm ashamed to say I haven't even inked her up yet! I think your coloring of her is beyond amazing (you are too hard on yourself)! And your friend is going to LOVE this cool bookmark!
