My First Kenny K :)

Happy Valentines Day (a lil early) :)

Today I created my first card using a Kenny K Digi Stamp. I have been eyeing up these stamps for a while now, and I figured it was time to dive in and give them a try. I'm in Love with them!!!! I used Carmen Electrifying (how cute is that name)! I think these images are PERFECT for guy cards for Valentine's Day. Super Sexy lol. Here is the card I created. I absolutely LOVE how this turned out.

I used my Cricut to cut out the Heart and Wings. The layered hearts (both red and Blue) I did hand cut since the heart that came with the original image was cartonish so I had to improvise there. The wings are layered with Stickles. I also used my MFT Scalloped Die-namics and used this cool Silver Diamond plate paper for it. What guy doesn't like diamond plate? It just reminds me of Motorcycles and Garages LOL.

I even added a Harley Davidson Button to complete the whole 'guy' look.
The Corner piece is a a misc. piece of chipboard I had laying around that I colored with my R08 Copics. I also added a few Rhinestones for a sparkly touch. Check her sunglasses out. I first colored them with my Sparkly Spica pens and then layered over that with Crystal Effects to make them look realistic. I love the results of that combination!!!

Speaking of Crystal Effects, once I started using it I just couldn't stop LOL! I also layer it over her boots to make them look like leather. I also layered my Spica Glitter pens under certain parts to give it deeper dimension.

Finally I added the Sentiment. I hand cut the flag and curled it to give it dimension. I totally love this effect and I have been wanting to give that a shot, and this was the perfect opportunity. I'll be using this technique more as I love the results from it. It gives you that Dimension that really makes a card pop. The Sentiment was stamped with a Micheal's Dollar stamp and a combo of my Momento Dew Drops Ink in Blue and Red.

Thanks so much for Visiting and I hope you all have a GREAT Valentine's Day. Kelly and I are headed off to a Local winery for the day. It's 50 degrees here (HAHA - warm to us) and they are having a band playing. Off to sip some bubbly :)
