Kenny K - Ker-ching!

Theme at Kenny K - pocket card
Prize sponsor - Kenny K - a chance to win 5 digis!!!!

Hi everyone, and as you can see, the pockets I have on my card are those on a wallet. I reckoned that the guy in this image has loadsa ker-ching! With that pimped ride and the flashy jewellery adorning him he can certainly splash the cash. So I reckoned that the perfect kind of pocket for him just had to be on a wallet.

The image I chose to use is called 'King Bling', and I coloured him with Promarkers and a couple of Trias. I did however, paper piece the lower part of his hoodie and the t-shirt so they had a design on them.  I thought grey marl joggers suited his ensemble though so just coloured them with my Promarkers. LOL.  Sucker for punishment as I am, I also coloured a second image, a cut down version for the 'photo' in the wallet, complete with the same paper pieced elements - and yes, it really does pull out of pocket #1 as if it is a photo & has an acetate 'window' like a real wallet!  To make it more 'photographic' though I added sky to this second image as he would need a background.

Pockets #2 & #3 are on the other side to hold the 'credit cards' and the cash - and in this instance, the sentiment too. This means it doubles up perfectly not only as a card but as a present as I can pop in any relevant shop voucher etc. into the pockets too. See, method in the madness! The stitching around the edges is all faux today made with a Letraset fineliner as this card was made before I got my mits on any of the new nibs. I made the sentiment on the PC in the shape of a credit card to fit in with the theme. I then added the 'metal' corners to both sides of the front as this is how my son's wallet is designed - why they are not on the back too I have no idea, as surely the back gets as much wear as the front? Still, mine is not to reason why a gent's wallet is as it is, so I just added my card corners (which were coloured also with Promarkers), to the front .
