Well, it's great to "see" y'all here at Em's Thoughts.  I truly am so grateful to y'all for keeping tabs on me and leaving such wonderful comments.  I love reading each and every one.

The card I have for you this time features a Kenny K image.  Yep, I do believe he is quickly becoming one of my favorites.  I used this one before, but changed her up quite a bit for this card.

I used black and white for this image.  I'm not good with black hair  yet or she would have had it.  So, she has to suffer with being a brunette.  I used my BIC markers to add the color to this image after printing her off on Neenah card stock.  I used black and gray to get the color of her dress.  I added a bit of white gel pen for highlights.  I like using the white pen to give highlights but sometimes it's just a bit too bright.  I found out that if you take your colorless blender and run lightly over the line made by the gel pen that it lightens it without removing it.  One of the challenges I am entering this card in is for distressing.  So, I took the image, tore the edges and inked it heavily with DI Vintage Photo.

I made the card base from SU Basic Black and it measures 6" square.  The back ground paper I made myself by inking up the D'vine Swirls embossing folder with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and running it through my Cuttlebug.  It gives it a Letterpress pattern.  Thank God for youtube.  I learn alot by spending hours on there.  :)  The DP is from DCWV.  

Adding some white pearls, flowers from Petaloo and some black lace finished off the card.  I didn't add a sentiment to this one because I wanted the sketch to show through as well as the focus be on the image.

Thanks for stopping by today/tonight.  Have a wonderful Friday.  God bless y'all.
