A New Challenge at Kenny K - Checks

Hey, everybody!  I hope you're weekend is rockin' and rollin'!  Do you have special plans to celebrate Dad today?  I haven't even made Father's Day cards yet.  I am a super bad daughter.  Look up the phrase "bad daughter" in the dictionary and'll see my picture!  I think my family is used to my inability to complete things timely.  Easter cards get mailed out in May, Mother's Day cards sent a week after the fact, and Christmas cards that I finish up in a hotel room on Christmas Eve and hand deliver Christmas Morning.  Ah, lucky for me, I have a very patient family ;D

Well, needless to say, neither Dad nor Father-in-law will be receiving this card.  She's just a bit racy for a couple of elderly gents in their mid 70s ;D  I can practically hear mom guffawing at my description of Dad as an elderly gent...LOL!  Anyway, this is my last challenge card with Kenny K.  It's been a year since the team began and I have been lucky to have spent 12 glorious months working with some of the most amazing (and popular) images on the Internet and a team of artists who have the ability to make any image they put color to sing.  What a fabulous ride this has been!  But, alas, it is time for me to step aside and make way for a new team member who will add a fresh perspective to Kenny's designs and create stunning cards sure to inspire and wake the creative juices in us all.  Congratz to all of the new team members.  You are in for a real treat ;D

When Kenny released the Krash Kittenz I knew I would have to use lusty Carmen Electrifying at some point, but didn't know when until a few days ago when I decided she would be part of my farewell card.  What a sassy exit this image makes ;D  I colored her with Copics and then added dimensional lacquer to her boots.  A sprinkling of fairy dust, aka glitter, adds a bit of sparkle.  This Chica is ready to turn heads!

Visit the Kenny K Download shop and check out all of the designs.  There is something for everyone!  This week's theme is to use Checks in your design.  If your card is randomly selected and you've used a Kenny K image, you could win a couple of great prizes...a $15.00 gift card to Michelle's Scrapbook Shop and your choice of 5 digi images to Kenny K's Download site.

Visit Kenny K's Krafty Girlz challenge blog and check out the dazzling designs by my teammies.  Inspiration abounds!  See you in a couple of days with something new.  Until then, stay crafty!

  9. This is beyond fabulous. She's very racy, but fun too with her tramp stamp and those boots. I wish I had a body like that. I'd go topless too.

    Anyway, great coloring. How'd you do the hair shadows?

    I hope you continue to use your Kenny K stamps because you do rock them. But then again, you rock every stamp you touch. So there.

    She is sassy for sure, maybe she isn't great for your father in law, but I know a few guys that would love to receive it.
