A Blonde Bombshell

Happy New Year Fellow Bloggers,

Have you heard the exciting news? Actually, there's two bits of exciting news - it's a news filled post!

Exciting news No.1 - There are four NEW RELEASES at Kenny K.

One of them is Blonde Bombshell and here she is in my latest creation.

Isn't she awesome?

For this card I finally used some very bright turquoise papers I had bought ages ago. I love these papers, but struggled to find a use for them because every image I tried to pair with them was too... other  (Excellent English I know but I can't figure out another way to describe it).

I needed a very simple image for such vibrant papers, and what better than a neutrally coloured blonde knock-out? She was coloured with copics of course- just skin tones, blonde hair and an off white to accent her dress.

I also had a bright gold key charm that has been longing for a home. I realised that it went fantastically with the gold in the papers.

Blonde Bombshell is from the Retro Collection and you can get her here. There are also THREE new digis in the Heartbreakers Collection (and ladies, these fellows are hot!), you can check them out here.

Exciting news No.2 - Each DT member from Kenny K's Krafty Krew has BLOG CANDY!
