You Go Girl!


Sooooooo, I know I ALWAYS color the cutesy, sugar & spice type of images for my cardz  …  but lately I’ve been seeing so many cool cardz with these gorgeous Kenny K. images, that I just HAD to give one a try!!  

Let’s just say it brought out that inner diva in me!  hehehe    (diva grandma, that is!)     I’m definitely hooked ~ they’re so much fun to color!    

And, of course, I had to color my first one with my all-time favorite technique ~ yep, another monochromatic card!   I probably should start a separate blog just for these cardz to save those of you who are getting tired of black and white!!   🙂



And, another new thing for me ~ I made this card for TWO challenges!    Wow, huh?      It’s funny to see so many people who are clever enough to make one card for lots and lots of challenges ~ not me, it’s hard enough to concentrate on one!    This was a definite first!   

The monochrome technique is actually for a brand new fun Copic challenge called Color Me Copic with a great group of designers on the team;  AND, the sketch used is for the Kenny K’s Krafty Girlz challenge, which also incudes a super talented group of ladies!  


Thanks for visiting AGAIN today!    Hope you have a great weekend!!
