Ok, maybe it is those things.
But JUST ONCE...I'd like to see a Kenny K girl that was...more endowed around her middle than she is on top.
Ok, glad to get that off my 50-year old sagging chest.
The challenge this week was to do a BINGO card. I've never done one before. It was fun...though I must say, I was TEMPTED to do a "blackout" card and use EVERY technique on here...but, I came to my senses and didn't do it. For those of you who don't know what a BINGO card is, it's where you choose 3 of the techniques on the BINGO card--to form a BINGO...straight across, up and down or diagonal. You know...BINGO. So, I chose the top row--Distress, Lace and Emboss. But, of course, I had to stretch the rules a bit. My card is LACED. I figure that counts as "Lace". If not, oh well. Bite me.
Here is my card. I chose the saucy wench, Eva Pearl. She's a buxom lass, full of spice and sass. And, she is really quite the clever crafter. I mean, could YOU make a skirt out of a wooden keg? Now THAT'S talent right there. I colored her with my Prismacolor pencils on Kraft paper (yes, that's mettalic silver on there) and silhouette-cut her out. The sentiment I made myself. When I was a kid, like most girls, I used to doodle. A LOT. But, while most girls were drawing flowers and hearts...I was drawing old, ripped, worn maps and scrolls. What can I say? I was...not normal. It's really not that difficult, and for this card...it just fit the theme.
I embossed some Kraft paper, used direct-to-paper-inking, then cut it in half...and inserted brads and "laced" it, corset-style, with some faux-leather rope. I found the PERFECT patterned paper to echo her bustier. To finish it off, I took the blade of my scissors and scraped it along the edges of the card to give it a chewed-up-weathered look.
