Layer It Up with Kenny K's Krafty Krew

Good day, everyone! It's Sunday again already and that means another new challenge at Kenny K's Krafty Krew. This week is Team B's turn to show you their stuff but since Kenny is releasing 3 new digi stamps to go with the Steampunk Burlesque collection, I decided to make a card with one of the new images too. Being an old rocker chick myself, I knew the moment I saw her that I had to color Madame Axe and put her on a card right away.

This week's theme is "Layer It Up" and our sponsors are:

with a $20 gift certificate


our own Donna's prize of a gift voucher to her store!

How're these for fabulous prizes? Awesome, right?

So without further delay, here's my contribution to this week's challenge inspiration:

This guitar-totin' bad a$$ is only 4 1/2 inches tall (though you can make her any size you like) and that's a LOT of detail for so small a space, which made coloring her a bit of a challenge. Worth every painstaking stroke of the marker though (LOL)... I love how she turned out!

It's hard to tell in the photos but all of the metal pieces on the guitar and amp as well as Madame Axe's goggles, are colored in silver metallic ink and shaded with gray Copic ink to add the appropriate amount of dimension. The background paper is from the Colorful Life stack from DCWV and the gears die cuts are from Want 2 Scrap. If you haven't checked them out yet, they have some fantastic products! I also used WOW Embossing Powder in Metallic Copper Regular on the chipboard gears.

Here's a closeup of Ms. Axe so you can see the level of detail Kenny puts into these bold ladies. The Steampunk Burlesque digis are probably my favorite collection of all of his awesome images for that reason among others.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Dream Valley Challenge - #51 Ribbons and Bling
