Kenny K challenge and a question regarding tutorials you'd like to see

 I am so sorry I haven't been commenting much - I do stalk your blogs but the keyboard of my laptop is totally loose after my youngest had a go at it and typing is a major challenge since the keys keep flying off. The courier was supposed to have picked it up on WEDNESDAY to take it to the manufacturer for repairs - still no cigar! grrrrrrr

This week's challenge at Kenny K Krafty Girlz is a very simple recipe:
3 DP, 2 ribbons, 1 image

Sponsors for this challenge are Fantastic Ribbons - offering 4 rolls of ribbon of the winner's choice

and Kenny is offering 5 digi's of the winner's choice.

We also have a mega-talented guest designer joining us - Joe-Anne Farnsworth.
I love Kenny K-s male images - I think those were the first ones of his I seriously coveted. And to give them even more credit - even my husband likes that card - and that's sayin' something! lol
The image is coloured with Copics - no list though, cause I never wrote anything down...
The papers are from OA, distressed and treated with texture paint.
And now to my question -  I just recently got a camcorder (woo-hoooo!) and am finally planning to start dishing out proper tutorials since so many people have asked for those. I need you to tell me which ones would you mostly be interested in though:
Copic colouring or Prismacolor pencils (I am not particularly savvy with inks and watercolours but if you want I can share the little I know about those too)
Backgrounds (skies, clouds,ground, basic shadows, abstract backgrounds, dotted backgrounds)
People (facial features, skin in general, hair, clothing, pleats, textured materials)
Good colour combinations and basic blending
Prismas on kraft
Prismas on Copics

If you have any requests and wishes just leave them in comments and I'll put them onto my to-do list. Your input would really help me to get my act together.

Tellen's Place -  sports
Bronte and Bella's Challenge - Let's Hear it for The Boys
Freshly Brewed -  Spots and dots
Paper Pretties - masculine
Simon Says Stamp - Happy Birthday
Going Grey With Scrap-Creations -  Anything Goes
Top Tip Tuesday - Birthday
Incy Wincy Designs - for the boys
Ooh La La Creations - It's a man thing
Nettie G's Digital Gems - use 5 papers (at least 3 patterned, 1 solid) - I used 3 patterned, blue and white solid

Thank you so much for coming to see me! :)

Barbara Sproatmeyer said...

You can color anything and I'd still watch! :D I'd love to see how you blend from your darkest colors to your lightest - I love that a lot of the areas you color are so vibrant with color yet so in depth with the shadows and bright with the highlights - it's like magic!!

Chrissy said...

Wow, Annika, this is stunning! You must be crazy not loving this card! I love the way you used texture paint, it looks like sand all over the card. Great job! I still have a lot to learn:)

Maria Therese said...

Cool card!

Deb said...

fantastic card, perfect colouring as always! I would like to see all of those tutorials! There are very few good prismacolor pencil tutes around so they would be my first ask!
Happy Crafting, Debxx

Linda Coughlin, the funkie junkie said...

Just amazing work, as usual. LOVE the way you sprinkled the sand around the edges - brilliant. BUT I think you should have given your muscle man gray hair. It would have worked beautifully with the sentiment...just sayin'.

Tracy said...

You can put me down to watch all of the above! Any tutorial you could do would be fantastic and your list has lots of things I'd like to learn more about. I had to laugh at your keyboard problem. I recently changed to a wireless modem so I was excited about getting to use my laptop to comment when I'm being lazy in bed. Well the "o" key has to be pressed with the force of a jackhammer to work and you know what--"o" is a very USED letter. LOL Guess I'll have to break down and get it fixed.
P.S. The card is awesome!

Linda Coughlin, the funkie junkie said...

Okay, so I actually read your post and see that the sand is really texture paint - how cool is that? Gotta get me some!

Cec said...

Fabulous card. Love the layout and the great papers. I am with many of the other ladies and want EVERYTHING you can teach me about colouring. I work with Prismas so selfishly I want you to start there. Whatever you give us, it will be given by a Master.

Wow, this is one stunning and hunky card.
Any tutorials you do will be more than appreciated. Personally, I'd like to see more on creating backgrounds for colored images so I don't always have to cut my images out to get the effect I want. Thanks! "Hugs" Carol
