Crafty Catz Challenge: Pretty Women


I have some amazing news for you today! I've asked to become a full member of the Crafty Catz design team and, of course, I said yes! It has been so much fun working with these lovely ladies:

It's also time for a new challenge over at the Crafty Catz Challenge Blog! Are you ready to play? You have a whole week to make something amazing and as long as you adhere to the theme 'Pretty Women' chosen by our lovely Nick you'll have a chance to win...

...5 amazing digi images...

by our generous sponsor...

Digi and rubber stamps from KennyK are a fun and edgy way to add the perfect dose of attitude and style to all of your creations!
The creator, the artist, the man: KennyK is a NYC-born professional illustrator who has brought his funky-but-slick, urban-influenced look to the cardmaking and papercrafts world. His signature style can be seen throughout his various collections of sexy pinup babes, sweet 'n sassy girls, cool rockin' dudes, kid’s stuff, retro characters and more at

Now onto my card...

As this week's theme is all about pretty ladies I have chosen to use 'Blonde Bombshell' by Kenny K on my card. I wanted to reflect the real star that Marilyn Monroe was so I coloured her in in some pretty coral and red colours, popped her into my circular shaker element with some silver stars in two sizes and brushed some silver glitter paste by GlitzCraft onto the edge. I did some simple stamping using the Recollections stamp set to create the background pattern. Then it was just a matter of blinging it up using the same silver glitter paste with my tiny brush and brushing some around the edges. I hope you like it! :) I had to tilt the camera a little for you to see the gorgeous sparkle...

Please hop over to the Crafty Catz to see what my lovely team mates made for this week's challenge, you are in for a real treat!

Have a great day!
