Mind that Wall

Morning All

I seem to be making cards earlier and earlier so can't show them on here until after there birthdays so today I decided to make a card just for fun. I have recently bought a few kenny k images so decided to use one for this card.

Coloured with my trusty copics and using paper from a previous card and cardstock from my snippet draw I came up with this simple card.

I used a Tim Holtz embossing folder for the wall but it looked too plain so decided to use my distress inks to grunge it up a bit. I am always a bit anxious when I start with the inks as I haven't mastered the art of inking yet, I tried the applicator and it went ok but then I tried a plain old shaving brush and hey presto better coverage and control for me and I now want to ink everything in sight lol.

Ingredients
Image: Kenny K Downloads "Club Kid"
Papers: Echo Park Springtime Digi PaperJessica Sprague
Cardstock: Snippet draw
Sentiment: Pollycraft Freebie (love these)

Challenges: Kenny K - metal
