Yowza! What did you think of the Gothik Angelz release? Are you still reeling from those sizzling images or what?! Competely different from anything I've ever seen before, for sure! Plus, my Kenny K design teammates really rocked them out! I can't wait to see what else Kenny has up his artistic sleeve.
It's time for a new challenge over at Kenny K's and the theme for this week is "In the Summertime". I used Da Bomb for this one. She's my favorite from the Glam Gang. The colors in my card are Summery and I threw in some DP with birds on it for good measure. Not sure if "tagging" is a Summertime activity, but we can pretend she is working on some outdoor home improvement projects or perhaps creating some art ala Frida Kahlo ;D I made the background panel directly behind Da Bomb and wanted it to appear like it was freshly sprayed with spray paint. I used TH Distress Inks in Fired Brick and Vintage Photo, swiped these across a craft sheet, misted it with water, and then laid my white die cut in the ink. I dried it with a heat gun and then went back in a few more times to pick up more color and grab some of that blotchy goodness. I colored the image with Copics a while back so I have no clue what colors I used. Sorry :(
I have to make a confession. I photographed this card last night and during my post editing process, I notice that I left a few little white areas that I missed with the Copics. These high megapixel cameras pick up every flaw with such clarity. AND it doesn't help that I blew it up and amplified it for the world to see on my blog. Let's hear it for technology...followed by a sarcastic, half-hearted "yay". Truth is, I am having a minor middle aged crisis. I think I need *gasp* reading glasses! When I get close up to color, I have noticed that my eyes are not able to focus on the detail work. It's actually a struggle and I sit there blinking my eyes several times, opening them wider, and looking down at my project from different angles thinking these actions will remedy my blurry dilemma. They do not. Now I have to come to terms with my visual mortality and breakdown and get those readers, and soon, otherwise you're going to start seeing stuff on my blog that looks like it was colored by a crazed cat with a crayon taped to his paw. No offense to anyone who happens to have a feline Rembrandt at home, but My kitties are not particularly artistic ;D
Anyway, back to the good stuff...the Kenny K design team has created oodles of fabulous cards for you to peruse at the Kenny K's Krafty Girlz Challenge blog, so head over there now for some inspiration.
