Skater Star

Hi ya everyone,  I made a fun card today using a Kenny K image called, Rad Boarder.  Truly, Kenny K has some awesome images for boys and teenagers in general.  These creations can be some of the hardest to create too, but they are much easier with Kenny K. 

I created this card using not only the Kenny K image but also the Sun, Moon, Stars stamp and die set!  Love this combo, the stamps and dies work so perfectly together.  I also used my Copics, some fun papers and stickers.

For more inspiration using gorgeous images from Whimsy Stamps join us on the blog!
