Special Lady

Howdy.  Can I just tell y'all how much I love Kenny K images?  They are fantastic.  I have to enlarge my collection as soon as possible.  I am really enjoying them.

The card that I for you uses a Kenny K image that looks like Marilyn Monroe.  I love her too.  She was a very sexy woman and I love the fact that she wasn't a twig.  I don't have a clue what these people see in a woman who looks like she needs a good home cooked, southern meal..ok maybe three or four of them.



I used my Spectrum Noir pens to add color to this beautiful image.  Now that I have some good card stock, I think I am getting better at blending.  I added some highlights using a white gel pen to her hair and her dress.  

After coloring her, I used my circle cutter to give it shape.  I inked the edges with Memento Dandelion ink.  I used the same cutter to make the patterned (Heidi Grace)  circle and the mustard (SU) colored circle.  The doily is from my stash and I inked it with Memento Lady Bug and Dandelion.  I layered them in a random pattern on a background from DCWV.  The card base itself is Recollections red and measures 6x6.

I added some Red Satin ribbon from Offray and a glittery butterfly from my stash.  Adding some red gems from Queen and CO. finished off the butterfly. 

The sentiment is from the Dessert Diva.  I used my Nestabilities to die cut the sentiment and scalloped mat (Basic Black--SU).  I used a pop dot to give the sentiment some height.

Thank you so much for keeping track of my card making progress.  I will be back tomorrow with a few more.  God bless y'all.
