Rock Chick!

Happy Tuesday all! Here we are, well into another week and I'm still colouring like crazy.  Mind you, it'll be a while before you can see everything I'm in the process of making but I feel like I'm keeping ahead of myself a bit, which is GOOOOOOD!

I've been inspired this week by the Allsorts Challenge, where the theme is 'use red, blue and yellow only!' - a nice primary colour challenge.  For a change, I thought I'd try out some of KennyK's digis this week, as I've often seen them but never yet used them.  What better way than with this zingy colour combo, eh?  Here's what I came up with:

Image: KennyK, 'Rock Chick'

Papers: Cosmo Cricket (red spots) and October Afternoon (blue stars); plus yellow Bazzill for those poptastic stars!

I have to say that I'm really pleased I decided to give KennyK's images a try.  They're super cute in a teenage/grown up kind of way - just wait until you see the 'Gothik Angelz' images! Super vamp!

This was a really fun card to make.  I used the Get Sketchy sketch that I used for 'Dude with 'Tude' in July (see him here), which is a brilliant sketch to use when you really want to bring attention to what's in the middle!

I coloured her up with my Copics - although the hair is still not quite as highlighted as I'd intended! I really must get to grips with that!

She was wonderful to colour, mind you, and the primary colour combo suited her really well. The finished image is grounded and glowing with my Prismacolors (yes, I know I still have to do the tutorial!) before cutting 'out of the box' with my circle Nesties.  I cut another circle in blue and mounted her off-centre (towards the bottom) of the circle, so that I had room for all those stars!

I'm looking forward to working with KennyK's images some more in future, particularly those 'Gothik Angels' - what fun!

I had dinner with my parents tonight as my OH is away on business. Total carb overload though - Mum made a fantastic rice pudding and I just couldn't resist!  So I'm sleepy, for sure, and it must be bedtime, even though it's only 9.45 p.m. 

Happy crafting.
