Torrey here with another challenge-o-rama from Kenny K's Krafty Krew! Thank you to all y'all who participated in our birthday celebration-lollapalooza. It was a blast, wasn't it? So much talent in this design team...I can hardly stand it!!!
Me and my fellow Team B-sters got together to present this week's challenge:
To play along, you need to make something with an "active" theme. Now, I know most of y'all will go for traditional sporty themes like football, baseball, basketball or soccer...but, I personally challenge y'all to get creative with the "activity" you choose for your theme. I mean, think of the possibilities??? You could do a card featuring: underwater basket weaving, watermelon chucking, turkey tossing, kitten juggling*, ...WHATEVER...as long as it's kinetic.
I chose surfing. Don't know why.
It's not like I've ever actually been surfing. Let's face it, there just aren't a WHOLE lot of opportunities to go surfing in Texas or Colorado (where I grew up)...unless you count snowboarding on avalanches--but I wouldn't recommend that. Yeah.
I used the totally buff "Surfer Dude" image for my card. I colored him up with my Prismacolor pencils (of course), then I coated his wetsuit with clear lacquer so that it actually looks...wet. Go figure. I did him in layers (hard to tell by the photo) but he and his surfboard are all paper-toled out into 4 layers so it's super dimensional.
I just LoVe the background paper...it's so funky and fun and creates such a sense of movement! And now that I look at it...it reminds me of giant octopus tentacles. COOL.
