Kenny K - #69 My Super Hero

Theme at Kenny K - embossing
Sponsors this week - My Mum's Craft Shop & Kenny K.

The Kenny K image I chose to use this week is 'Super Hero' & this muscular specimen flashing his pearly-whites is a perfect image for a male's fun birthday card. Whether or not your male recipient bares any resemblance to this hunk is another matter, of course. LOL. The image was coloured with Promarkers.

Whilst our theme this time around is embossing (wet or dry, it doesn't matter), I just wanted to keep it all very subtle, but I hope it isn't so subtle that you can't see it!  LOL. I ran the matt red paper behind the star through an embossing folder but the blue horizontal paper I hand embossed with a brass stencil to scatter varying stars all over it. The large yellow star was punched out of white card before I set about it with my Promarkers & I then hand embossed my own narrow lines not far from its outline before I liberally spritzed with Spray & Shine (twice actually, as it just wasn't that glossy after one dose). The sentiment is from Pollycraft.

    This is a great man card I think anyone would like, I don't so much embossing either but thats cuttlebug's fault. Their embossing folders are too narrow and give my card a seam.
    Great job, Tine!
