Challenge #62 for the Squirrel and the Fox

The challenge #62 for the Squirrel and the Fox this week (fortnight) is to use Embellishments! Well, who doesn't use those!! I LOVE my embellies!

Firstly there is bling! I have sooooo much bling! This little label has been stamped with SU ink using an Stampin' Up  stamp, and then overstamped with TH Distress ink, and a Darkroom Door stamp, then die cut - bling added!

This is a Darkroom Door stamp too (same set) and the ink is again TH Distress - Firebrick I think it is called. The little clip is from Stampin' Up.  It has been stamped onto SU Whisper White and fussy cut - sort of...

This little gal (I think her name is Carolyn) is a digi image from Vanessa, a member of our DT and also is the sponsor for this challenge. You can check this out and some more of her images at her shop here.

I printed her off on the X-Press card and coloured her with ...... Copics! I stuffed up her hair a bit. I wrote the word "Selfie" (one of the newest words in the dictionary!) next to her and added some bling!! 

This is my ribbon treatment!! I wanted it to be a bit ruffled and edgy. It is SU ribbon.

Under the image I added another one of Vanessa's digi images - a Library card! This has been overstamped with a MFT stamp from the set "Own Your Own Story", stamped with Momento London Fog and sponged with TH Antique Linen inkI handwrote the details on the card and added some......yes, bling!

The card is a commercial square blank in pearl. I added some DP from Basic Grey - Lauderdale and I die cut the image using a Nestabilities Label. I coloured in the faint idea of sky and ground by sponging on some Momento inks in New Sprout and Summer Sky before removing it from the die. I mounted it onto some SU Real Red card embossed with a hatching pattern and backed this with some SU Close to Midnight blue.  Oh, and I added a bit more bling!

Different light for the photo

We have grand-daughters who are always taking selfies and putting them into the digital sphere somehow - twitter or facebook or whatever......I avoid the camera like the plague!

So, that's my take on the challenge - what are you going to do?  There are lots of lovely DT inspirational cards to look at and you can follow them back to their blog an get some more inspiration from that! Oh, and leave them some blog love! Until next time, 

I will enter this in the following:
Delicious Doodles - use a ribbon: yep,did that
Digitally Sweet -  Anything Goes:  I have used two digital images - the girl and the Library card

Great card. Even my Miss 9 loves to take selfies on daddy's phone. He usually deletes them.
