The OutLawz DT - Burnishing!

Hello there! 

Another Monday so another challenge over at Monday Greetings - Link is HERE 
This week our challenge is "Burnish part of your card" - I had no idea what this was or how to do it!! 
So after a lot of googling, I finally decided on how I was going to burnish my project. 
This week we are sponsored by Bugaboo - Link is HERE 
And 2 Cute 2 Ink - Link is HERE 
I had the opportunity to use Bugaboo's Girls Happy Trio - Link to image HERE 


So, the burnished part of my project is the image itself. I went with the technique of colouring the image with pencils and then going over it with a white pencil. This then blended the colours together and gave the image a slight sheen. I used Derwent Coloursoft pencils to colour the image in. The sentiment I made up and printed off the pc. It reads "There is no greater laughter than laughter among friends" very apt for the image! LOL Because I'd used different colours on the image, I wanted the card quite simple so went with a white embossed background, twine and buttons. 

I hope you can see the burnishing in the pic on bottom right :) 

Be nice to see you all over at the OutLawz - There's lots of challenges to along with!
