Smeared Ink Monday- SI Design Team - Kenny K Blog Hop!!!

Happy Monday Everyone!!!

You should be arriving here from my darling friend Lady B's scrumptious blog.  If not please start HERE so that you don't miss any of our team's amazing creations!!

I'm so excited to be here with you and my fellow Smeared Ink sisters having a blast with our amazing hop sponsor Kenny K!!!

I had the great pleasure of working with Kenny's Alice Chains stamp.   I first colored her with my Copics and Prismacolor markers.  I then hit her flowy skirt with a thick coat of Crystal Glaze and let the entire piece dry for a couple of days.
When completely hardened, I trimmed the image out very carefully with my craft snips.  I was so excited with how vibrant her colors came out.  I primarily used oranges and purples to really make her super sassy.
My card base is SU! cardstock in Tangerine Tango.  My next layer is a light purplish, textured wallpaper from Gauche Alchemy.  The next 2 layers are a variety of purple DP that I pulled from my ginormous scrap stash.  Alice is backed with ouchless cardboard, also from Gauche Alchemy.  My embellishments on the side include a cool, purple scroll that was cut using my Cricut.  This is topped with a crocheted flower sent from one of my fab DT gals from SI, centered with a faux vintage "pleather" brad.
I added Alice using 3-D foam adhesive and as a lasting touch used old school Mrs. Grossman's (all of you children of the 70's and 80's will know what I'm talkin' about) star stickers to maker our star hottie just twinkle!!!
I hope you enjoy and have been inspired!!

Next stop for you is off to the ever fabulous Kapree!!!
