Kiss Me Darlink! Kenny K Mae Western















 Hi again!  I'm back with another card.  Isn't she a gorjuss image?!  Mae Western...A Kenny K downloads digi stamp that was so much fun to color.  Once again I really got in some good practice coloring the skin.  I love the Kenny K digis!  And I'd love to color up all the Krash Kittenz, as well as almost every other image Kenny has on his site!  I hadn't planned on making her bra straps sparkly but I had colored one strap brown thinking it was part of her hair and couldn't fix it so I just covered them both with stickles and ended up loving it better.  Well once I get the glitter out I just want to keep going with it but I restrained myself and only put a few highlights on her boots.
I designed this card for the challenge going on at Kenny K's Krafty Girlz. The theme this week is Three Red Hearts.
 The sentiment, "Kiss Me Darlink" was part of a Rocky and Bullwinkle rubber stamp of Boris and Natasha.(I taped over Boris and Natasha) It's one of the vintage stamps that I've had in my collection for over 20 years.  I was sorry I wasn't able to collect the complete line before they were discontinued by Rubber Stampede.  I'll never get rid of the 4 that I have as they're probably priceless by now!  I wasn't even able to google an image of the stamp to show you.  Was Rocky and Bullwinkle ever shown in the USA?   It was a very "Canadian show" and it rocked!...and when I say Canadian show, I'm not saying that like it was a good thing...lol.  Canadian T.V. has improved a ton in the last 15 years though...now that I'm coloring and blogging I rarely watch Television anymore.  If it wasn't for fb and Two peas in a bucket I'd never know what was going on.
My daughter Ashley took me to Michael's last week and I found that awesome pucker lip ribbon.  I knew that would be too fun to use on this card.  The paper is Echo Park Yours Truly.  The three little red heart brads were silver but I colored them with a red copic.  The metal piece is from SU.  I found the sparkly pink tulle on a spool at the dollar store.  Bunched up like that on the edges of the image made me think  Mae looked like a wrapped up delicious piece of candy.  So I decided this would be the perfect Valentine to give to my husband.  He's working away from home right now so it will still be a few more days till I can give this to him.  I hope he loves it!!
