Alternative Valentines Card - Kenny K

Hi everyone,

well you know how i am at being alternative when it comes to my cards and i do like making bright and funky ones. With this in mind a couple of the challenges which i wanted to enter all relate to love etc because of Valentines day, well i figured i would step completely away from tradition and really hope you like my final card.

I used a Kenny K image and coloured her with my Copics. I have to admit i initially coloured her when the power was off a few weekends ago and wasn't really sure what to use her for. I cut her out and left her on my craft table until inspiration hit me LOL

I loved the bright colours and thought they would make a great alternative to the normal reds and pinks, so i cut three panels in the same colour scheme used and embossed them so they had music notes on them. I love the look it gave. I wanted a little bit more texture so i used some black embossed paper i had to give it a bit more edge. I then adhered to my card, after much playing around to get the layout right. I tend to cut out all my different panels together and play around till i am happy as i have a tendency to change my mind.

I added black ribbon and bow (well ribbon i had, coloured with my Copic) and adhered these in the corner of the card and added heart gems in each of the corner. When it came to the sentiment i had an idea of what i wanted to say so typed this out using Word and the many free fonts i have downloaded over time and played around with it until i was happy and then printed this straight onto yellow card stock, cut it out with my small circle Spellbinders Die and adhered to the card. I used dimensionals to add lift to my image as i wanted her to be the focal point and i am really happy with the results.

Hope you like it? here it is...
