Kenny K Challenge #29

I am pretty excited about today’s card. I have had this image from Kenny K colored in for weeks now, but I just couldn’t find the right stuff for her card. Nothing was working. So she sat, waiting patiently for the right “things” to come along. Well, yesterday I saw the latest Kenny K challenge, and I got super inspired! Not only does the sketch rock, but Cheryl’s version is amazing (not that she ever makes anything that isn’t amazing!). So, I went in a totally different direction then what I thought I wanted, and it turned out pretty rad! Wanna see? Say hello to Carmen Electrifying!

I colored Carmen up in my 2 favorite colors, purple and teal. And I think she looks hawt! You can’t really tell in this picture, but the lips are pink foil…you’ll see them better down below. You can click on any picture to see it bigger.

And of course, I just had to make her bangs teal. I also used Smeared Ink stamps on this card. From the Urban Decay collection. You can see a screw head here on the right, and I used one of the fabulous textures on my purple cardstock.

Check out that fabulous foil! Love that paper! Oh! And here is the original sketch:

Have a fabulous and inspiring Monday!!! Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Two Huge Valentine’s Day Hops!

I am in not one, but two Valentine’s Day hops! Not bad for someone that doesn’t even like Valentine’s Day… The first is via Smeared & Smudged . It’s time for our monthly Member Blog Hop! The second was started by Taylor Usry . Please bear with me…this post is long because I am sharing 2 projects and the hop lists are huge. Let’s stat with Smeared & Smudged, shall we? My dear friend Alex and I collaborated on the theme for this month’s S&S Member Hop. Instead of making it a free-for –all, we decided to challenge our members a little…create something Valentine’s Day / love themed, but there is a catch.  Because we are Smeared and Smudged you can not use any of the following: No hearts No red or pink Nothing ‘cute’ unless you make it uncute of course :) Ok, so it’s not dark and scary…but it’s definitely not cute either. I used my colored pencils for the focal image.  It’s from Smeared Ink’s Smitten collection. The “pretty fly” is from the teir teen Style Sa
