You Rock 40!


The Sugar Babies are back after our Christmas break with a new sketch for you today.  Korin always creates the most fabulous sketches and this weeks is REALLY fun!!  It has film strip kind of vibe going on, which challenged me a bit until I decided to rotate it and then it all fell into place!!  :)

The Kenny K Groove Dude digital image was printed on PaperTreyVintage Cream cardstock and colored with Copics.  I colored this image one afternoon when I needed a distraction...I was so into the coloring that I didn't realize that I was practically sitting in the dark the whole time.  It's hard to tell from the photo but there is a strip of Navy Vintage Seam Binding above the notebook edge border.  The paper's I used were some older 12x12 scrapbook papers from my stash.  The ticket is also a digital image (I think from Raindrop Echo Designs) and printed on the same scrapbook paper.  I used my new number dies from My Favorite Things along with some Tim Holtz metal gear and sprocket embellishments.

This is the birthday card I've created for my amazing husbands 40th birthday.  He is truly the greatest guy I know.  He's not only handsome, but a fantastic Father and husband...I LOVE him so much!!  He treated me to a weekend in New York on my 40th so I'm treating him to a weekend in VEGAS for his!!  (Which kind of feels like a gift to myself too....but hey, who's complaining!)!  LOL  


Copic's Used:
Skin: E15, E13, E11, E00, E50
Hair: C7, C5, C3, C1
Jewelry/Guitar: B99, B97, B95, B91, BV000
