Kiss Me Darlink! Kenny K Mae Western
Hi again! I'm back with another card. Isn't she a gorjuss image?! Mae Western...A Kenny K downloads digi stamp that was so much fun to color. Once again I really got in some good practice coloring the skin. I love the Kenny K digis! And I'd love to color up all the Krash Kittenz, as well as almost every other image Kenny has on his site! I hadn't planned on making her bra straps sparkly but I had colored one strap brown thinking it was part of her hair and couldn't fix it so I just covered them both with stickles and ended up loving it better. Well once I get the glitter out I just want to keep going with it but I restrained myself and only put a few highlights on her boots.
I designed this card for the challenge going on at Kenny K's Krafty Girlz. The theme this week is Three Red Hearts.
The sentiment, "Kiss Me Darlink" was part of a Rocky and Bullwinkle rubber stamp of Boris and Natasha.(I taped over Boris and Natasha) It's one of the vintage stamps that I've had in my collection for over 20 years. I was sorry I wasn't able to collect the complete line before they were discontinued by Rubber Stampede. I'll never get rid of the 4 that I have as they're probably priceless by now! I wasn't even able to google an image of the stamp to show you. Was Rocky and Bullwinkle ever shown in the USA? It was a very "Canadian show" and it rocked!...and when I say Canadian show, I'm not saying that like it was a good thing...lol. Canadian T.V. has improved a ton in the last 15 years though...now that I'm coloring and blogging I rarely watch Television anymore. If it wasn't for fb and Two peas in a bucket I'd never know what was going on.
My daughter Ashley took me to Michael's last week and I found that awesome pucker lip ribbon. I knew that would be too fun to use on this card. The paper is Echo Park Yours Truly. The three little red heart brads were silver but I colored them with a red copic. The metal piece is from SU. I found the sparkly pink tulle on a spool at the dollar store. Bunched up like that on the edges of the image made me think Mae looked like a wrapped up delicious piece of candy. So I decided this would be the perfect Valentine to give to my husband. He's working away from home right now so it will still be a few more days till I can give this to him. I hope he loves it!!
