FREEZE! You Have the Right To....

Remain FABULOUS... according to Mr. Policeman here!

Good Evening Stampers! Hope you all had an awesome day :) I am super excited because tonight  is my LAST NIGHTSHIFT for awhile...YAY!!! Back to being a human being - LOL!

Today's card was created for this week's Kenny K's Krafty Krew Challenge which was a sketch challenge. I love sketch challenges because I am horrible and very lame when it comes to finding a layout. I would rather pick a layout I like then figure out my card.

For my card I used the Whimsy Stamps KennyK Collection Policeman. Isn't he beefy? LOL! I work in law enforcement outside of the store and I can tell you that we do not have many officers that look like him at our department - LOL! I colored him with my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers on the Crafter's Companion ultrasmooth white cardstock, then cut him out and popped him on a background I made using the Whimsy Stamps Street Art Background. This is my FAVORITE background to use with many of KennyK's images!

Here is a close up of Mr. Policeman...

I created my own background paper for the other panels using a jail cell stamp that I have had forever. It was from Hanna & Company when they were in business.

And I couldn't resist using donuts for my embellishments because as you all know cops love donuts! We have them every Friday at our Department - LOL! I created my frosting using liquid applique and before puffing it with my heat gun I sprinked some glitter on it. I can tell you from experience that even the manliest officers can't resist the sprinkle donuts :) Except I don't think the officer on my card eats many donuts!

Here is a close up of my donuts:

My saying is also from the same stamp set as my jail cell. I showed this card to my husband and he just laughed :)

Here is the sketch from the KennyK Challenge this week that I used for this card:

Hi, Laura! Congrats on your win last week! Sorry to be so late in commenting on your card. I am preparing to move from one city to another and have been so busy with that that I am just now getting around to it. Your card is awesome! You did a great job coloring the image and I love all the details you added to your design. The donuts look almost good enough to eat! Thanks for joining us at Kenny K's Krafty Krew last week.
