Kenny K's Challenge - 27 November 2011

Over at the Kenny K's Challenge this week is "stitching - real or faux".  For my card I have used the image called "Troublemaker".  It's one of Kenny K's first images I had but it's still one of my favourites.  I have coloured the image with my Promarkers and decided to go for a monchrome colourway this time.  I have added Glossy Accents to the ice-cream.  The backing papers are all downloaded from Summertime Designs and one I printed on both sides so I could do a scroll effect and therefore there would not be just plain white showing the other side.  All the papers have Tim Holtz's Black Soot distress ink around them along with the image and a layer I edged with a Martha Stewart punch.  Next came the doily - I inked with Black Soot and then sprayed with Crafter's Companion Spray and Shine.  I like the shiny effect it gave.  The card has been finished off with some faux stitching, Dawn Bibby sparkly flowers with black brads for the centres, ribbon bow, black peel-offs, length of ribbon with knots tied at intervals for a bit of dimension and a computer generated sentiment (which of course had Black Soot put around it!!!).
