I am not one of those folks that like to rush into the Holiday Season. I like to take it slow…enjoy the view…relish in the changes. But this year…I’m kinda needin’ a little bit of Holiday. I “need a little Christmas.” So, this card brought me a bit of joy. Kenny K’s latest challenge is Sparkle and Spots. I had colored up a few images last week that had not yet made it to a project, but when I saw this challenge, I knew exactly which Kenny K girl I wanted to use. This is Mistletoe. But a very Wintry version of her. I love her. I knew I liked her when I first saw her…but as I started to color her in, I quickly grew to love her. Yeah, she’s got some pretty sassy clothes on…but she also has the sweetest face. She looks like such a snow bunny here, no? Here’s a close up. You can click on any of my images to see it bigger. The majority of her was colored in with my water color markers. Her skin was done with colored pencils. I also used my Sakura Star Dust pen in Clear Star (love that pen!!!), to add a magical feel. Here you can see some of the shine. My background was made using Patina and Rum Raisin Glimmer Mist, along with a snowflake Glimmer Screen…all from Tattered Angels. So it’s really sparkly in person! I used the Star Dust pen around the edge of my card and even on my flowers! I incorporated the “spots” part of the challenge in one of the flowers and my ribbon. See how shimmery her eyes are? Her mistletoe too! She was just wonderful to color her in…I look forward to creating other incarnations of her. Hey! Did you know that Kenny K is one of our sponsors this month over at Smeared & Smudged? And that the Design Team is going to have a fabulous Kenny K blog hop on November 22nd?
