A KIT Saturday ... It's been a while!

It is the first Saturday of the month and that means that it's Kraaft it Together at, a virtual crafting meet up. The best part is you don't have to pack your supplies up and haul them around. I haven't  had a chance to participate in one of these events in a while. I know I'm missing out on the great fun!  This day never disappoints with lots of laughter and sharing of ideas and know how. All the Kraafters involved are a true joy to hang out with.  So here is what I worked on during this event.

I created a stamp. I wanted something to represent sisters or  friendship. I drew two girls  without facial features leaning their heads towards each other. When I was happy with my drawing, I transferred it to my carving rubber. All you have to do is turn it over and rub it with a finger or bone folder.
Then I just carved out the areas. I knew this was an outline stamp, so I just carved everything.  that wasn't drawn.
I stamped it a few times until I was happy with how it looked. My final stamping was done on a piece of book text that I had used to lift off some paint from a previous project. I think that the two combined make a great image! The message is evident! 
Sister, Friendship, LOVE!

I also got my small 2x3 gelli plate and created a few backgrounds. My intention is to use them as envelopes. They will be combined with my stamp soon and turned into mail art. 
Of course I had to draw on some of my backgrounds. I practiced a few faces with Neo color II. This one I liked a lot.
This one not so much. I wasn't happy with the hair. And it seemed too dark. 
If you ever want to join a virtual art meet-up, join us at the Kraafters  Kommunity on  Google plus.  They are totally worth it!
