Fab 'n' Funky - For the Kids

Woop woop, it's time for a new challenge over on the Fab 'n' Funky blog. We've an exciting one this week too, it's 'For the Kids'. Which means you can pull out all your stamps that make perfect kids creations. Better still check out the stamps from our amazing sponsor this challenge. Kenny K has a fabulous variety of stamps for sale, from the saucy and sassy through to the 'cool kids' stamps that the DT will be showcasing during this challenge. There's something for everyone. I've been a long time fan of Kenny's fabulous digi stamps, so I pulled something out of the archive which I really should have used before now. I love it when a challenge has me using something I've loved but was yet to get around to creating with.

Here is my DT offering for the Fab 'n' Funky Challenge #226 using the fantastic 'Rock Chick' from Kenny K. She has that sassy look he's known for and will suit being a gift for my daughter on the right occasion. As she's also known to wield an axe like this rock chick thanks to her talented papa's inspiration. I'll share some pics of her later. First up, let me show you my creation.

Told you she was sassy! I just love his take on these 'teenage chicks', so full of attitude and cheek. Just what I imagine my Georgie will be like in a few years, given her nature now. Every now and then, she'll come out with something sassy and I think, yup, there's my future teenager! I'm in for a world of trouble with that one. So strong willed, just like her mama. Thank goodness she has a beautiful heart to balance it.

The pic above focuses on the little details. I've used a cool paper that I discovered in my stash tonight when unpacking some bits and pieces I'd yet to from our UK shift. I've still a few bits to sort into better homes. When I saw this paper, I thought of rock concert tickets and figured it was a good match for this image. Better still, it came with the strips of tickets which I've used behind the image and tagged onto the sentiment. I've cropped the word 'Rock' from a cool Birdie Brown sentiment. I wanted to use the banner stax from MFT and the whole sentiment didn't fit, so I cropped it and added the 'you' above using a sweet wooden heart from a Freckled Fawn set I bought through the fabulous New Zealand based boutique craft store Paper Doll.

I had a lovely shimmery white paper to mat the image, but it needed some colour, so I inked around the edge of the mat with my Navy Blue Flexmarker using the flat nib. I wasn't sure the shimmery paper would absorb the ink, but it worked a treat. The number of times I've done this trick and it always amazes me how fantastically it works. Love my Letraset pens! The rest of the image was of course inked in a mix of Promarkers and Flexmarkers. The guitar was a fantastic 'hot pink' until I added the Glossy Accents to give the axe some sheen and it turned an orangey red! I so have to remember this happens with Glossy Accents. But I'm still pleased with the overall effect. The metallic bits on the guitar were inked with a Letraset Metallic Marker in Silver.

What a great card, Wendy! I love that Kenny K image, and I also love your papers and all the tickets! Your own personal maniac looks as if she's having so much fun in your photos! My son was also a guitar maniac, he used to play 'Whisky in the Jar' by Lynyrd Skynyrd again and again (and again!) Now he lives 4 hours' drive away and he only entertains his missus and daughter with his guitar-playing - and I'm secretly glad about that lol!!!

love Mags B xx
