I'm not a huge race fan. I like to watch it (or rather, I like to watch the crashes...as long as everyone is ok... and the last 5 minutes) and I have a small team of favorite drivers (go Denny!), but I do NOT make sure every Sunday for the summer months is clear so I can sit in front of the TV for 8 hours to watch the whole thing. However...my hubby does. He's huge into NASCAR, so when I saw Kenny K's Krafty Girlz challenge today I just knew I had to join in. I love Kenny's images, and I love to join in their challenges. My problem is they're due on Saturdays and I'm just not around on the weekends. Somehow I always end up missing the deadline, or since they're posted on Sunday, miss the challenge altogether. To make sure I got in this time, I came straight home to get to work!
This week's challenge is Check It Out. Now, if you've visited Kenny's shop you know he has some sassy little racing hotties. (If you haven't visited...what are you waiting for?! Go now! No, wait. Finish reading my post, THEN go. lol) After spending almost an hour on the site I finally decided on Racy Roxie. (That's right. I bought an image today, specifically for this challenge. I know I'll use it again, though. We have lots of NASCAR fan buddies.)
I used Copics for her skin and hair, and Glaze pens for her outfit, hat and sunglasses. (I just want to know....WHERE can I get a pair of shoes like that?!?) The car was colored using Glaze pens. The tire tread was tiled and printed on the cardstock to create the background.
That's about it for tonight. I can't wait for some kind of occasion to give this to my hubby. He saw it tonight...but I'm sure he'll forget about it in a week or so. =D
