You Rock!

I wanted to share the Valentine’s Day card that I made for Gene with you. Please note that it is NOT your typical Valentine…but would you expect anything less from me?

I used a fabulous image from Kenny K. This is the first time I colored Star up and she has immediately become one of my faves from them! I made the card as bright and bold as I could, and I think it’s pretty rockin’! ;)

The theme for this week’s Kenny K challenge is circles…so of course I had to play along there! Circles galore! Isn’t Star sassy and hawt? I love how she’s peeking from behind her guitar. She has been colored with my watercolor markers, minus her skin which was done in pencil.

The “You Rock!” sentiment is from Inkadinkado…give to me by my rad friend Tonya. She had this set for a while, and realized she wasn’t really going to use it. She gave it to me, in hopes that I would give it a better home. Well, I’ve only had the set for a couple of weeks, and I have already used it 3 times! Not bad, right?

So Gene loved the card. He thought it was really cool. He loved the pink rhinestones (I knew he would!). So that’s another example of how I do (or don’t really do) Valentine’s Day. Tune in tomorrow when I will be sharing another Strange Skin project (Hey! Did you know that Strange Skin is hosting Macabre Monday this week?! Hurry up and play along!). Have an inspiring day!!!
