All that aside, today is the start of a brand new challenge at Kenny K's Krafty Krew. The new theme is "Favorite Ice Cream". This wasn't an easy thing for me because I have several favorite ice cream flavors and it was difficult to choose just one! So I went with an easy one... Raspberry Sherbet!
The image I used is called "Da Bomb" and you can find her as well as the newly released images here. I love this sassy young lady and thought she would be perfect for my color scheme as she reminds me a little of one of my favorite performers, Pink!
I couldn't resist coloring her hair raspberry pink in honor of the daring and dangerous chanteuse after whom I fashioned her. Check out those boots! Wouldn't you love to have a pair of boots with flames on the toes? I would!!
The patterned paper is from The Paper Studio's Paris Apartment stack.
I tied this luscious bow with strips of hot pink and pale pink organza ribbons and I colored the rose and rosebuds with Shock Pink Copic ink. The self-adhesive gems are by Darice.
And here's the inside of the card, which is not quite finished. I may cover the other side and I'll be adding a solid color oval or circle where I can stamp a sentiment and leave space enough for a personal message to the recipient. I included this pic primarily so you can see how the patterned paper looks with nothing covering it. It just screams "ice cream" to me! LOL!
I hope you'll decide to participate in our little challenge, despite your busy summer schedules. We'd love to see what you create and there is always a fabulous prize for the winner, which is chosen randomly.... so you have as good a chance as anyone at winning.
That's all I have for you today but I'll be posting as often as I can during this transitional period. It just won't be as regularly as I normally post until I get settled into my new place in Houston. Wish me luck! Until next time...
