Favorite KK stamp

Hey there guys! Sitting here thinking that spring break was a big ole bust on the spring side. However, it gave me time last night to color up this image. I decided to try to play along with the Kraftin' Kimmie challenge this week and chose Artemis as my favorite image. I am not sure why, but I love this image. Maybe because I love myths??

Anyway - here she is:

Now, in the books I read Artemis is not such a great character. So I decided this is her daughter Katra - who supposedly looks like her but is nice. And wears stuff other than white!

Once I had her colored, I cut her out in a rectangle, but there was too much white space on the left. So I went just a LITTLE out of the box. I like how it turned out.  The paper is Oxford by Basic Grey.

Ok... so here I am cutting it barely under the wire - 1 hour and a few minutes left to enter into the KK challenge. WHEW.

Colors used:
Skin - YR0000, YR000, E11
Hair - E11, E13, E15, E17, E18, Y11
