Aud Sentiments Challenge # 22 Cool Sentiment.

Thank you to everyone who gave us such a laugh over the last fortnight - there were some fantastic cards with some fantastically corny sentiments. Please check out the Aud Sentiments Challenge blog to see who won and the top three.

This fortnight our challenge is to use a COOL SENTIMENT and we are being sponsored by Kenny K Downloads

The DT were allowed to choose an image to use - I chose Alice Chains - I really like the Gothik Angelz and they are certainly something completely different for me.

Here is my card....

As you can see I have chosen to use my favourite colour - purple - and I just felt it had to be black with the Gothik theme. The papers are from a Summer Driggs kit called Bubblegum and Licorice - I did slightly change the colour of the papers. I have used the Labels Two Nestabilities to got out the image and then drew around the outside to get a slightly larger matt on black glitter card. I have edged the image with Dusty Concord Distress ink.

I have coloured the image with Promarkers and Silver stardust gel pen. The sentiment and wings are from a Clearly Hand Stamped set by 3 Birds. The wings have been embossed with black glitter embossing powder. There is also a peice of black Magic Core'dinations card which has been embossed with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. The flowers are a mixture of petaloo and Papermania (I think!) with a bit of shiny purple candy on top.

I am looking forward to seeing what you come up with, and please check out my team mates to see some more inspiration - their links are on my left sidebar.
