Loves Rubberstamps Challenge - Bows

Good Morning,

If you are from the states, I hope you had a nice long weekend!  I have a fun challenge for you from Loves Rubberstamps! This week it is all about bows.  Anything with a bow will work (kite, bow tie, bow).  Our sponsor this week is Kenny K.  His images are something so different from what I typically work with, but I always have fun with them.

I have chosen Troublemaker image to work with.  Now, to me, she does not look like much trouble.  She is just chilling with her ice cream.  I colored her with copics on cryogen paper.  I then cut the image out with My Favorite Things Round Banner Die.  I decided that she looked a little funny leaning in mid air, so I used a Tim Holtz mixed media stamp to stamp what looks like a fence behind her foot.  I stamped the image with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I then inked around the edges with Weathered Wood and Broken China distress ink.  The background papers are all by My Minds Eye.

Copics used:
Skin:  E000, E00, E11
Jacket:  BG11, BG72, BG78
Shirt:  R21, R43, RV14
Pants:  E30, E31, E35
Hair:  R21, R43, RV14 (she needed to have fun hair)
Ice Cream:  E31, E35, W0, W1 & stickles

For the tags in the corner, I used My Favorite Things Mix Match Banners Die.  I dry embossed with clear embossing ink and powder using Tim Holtz mixed media stamps.  I stamped the Hugs sentiment by Amy R in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

Now it is your turn.  Come on over to Loves Rubberstamps and play along with us.
