I named myself The Crafting Professor, since I'm a crafter, and I'm a college professor. I went through many, many years of graduate school, and the best source of relaxation and stress relief was being in my craft room or going to a local crop. Back then, I never told anyone that I was a full-time graduate student. I was waiting for the day I would scrapbook my graduation page. Now, I run the ScrapbookerPhD challenge blog (http://scrapbookerphd.blogspot.com), and am bringing my passion for crafting and teaching together. But here, at The Crafting Professor, I'm just sharing my work with like-minded crafters from all over the world.

Rock Star

I'm still working my way through my New Year's Crafting resolution: all about coloring! 
I want to be able to apply for certification in coloring through Spectrum Noir and Copics by next year. 

Today I am showcasing a Kraftin' Kimmie image, Rocker Chick. I love Kraftin' Kimmie stamps because they ink really well for a crisp image. 

My inspiration came from a challenge at Kit and Clowder, an online community of crafters that take classes from Kit and Clowder. My inspiration for this challenge was based on the encouragement we get from the Kit and Clowder community. This card is for a special young girl who has a celebration coming up. 

To create this card, I started with coloring using my Copics:
Skin: E000, E11, E21, E00, R20
Hair: V000, V01, V04, V06
Guitar: C0, C3, C5, C7
Dress: BG11, BG13, BG15

I stamped the stars around her from a stamp in the set Enchanted by The Alley Way Stamps, and colored them with glitter pens. 

The glittery music notes are from Jolee's Boutique.
