The Squirrel and the Fox Challenge #62 - Use Embellishments!

Good morning! Ooops, actually, no, it's the afternoon! I meant to schedule this post, but we were watching 'The Mentalist' yesterday evening and I forgot! D'oh!!

But I'm here now to tell you about our new challenge at The Squirrel and the Fox. It's one that will appeal to so many of you - Use Embellishments. Yes, we'd like to see at least TWO embellishments on your creation!

Our sponsor is our very own DT teamie Vanessa! Check out her shop she has loads of sweet embellies, as well as a range of other goodies! She is offering a $10 gift card for her shop, and also 3 sets of enamel dots!

The images the DT have used have also been designed by Vanessa - this is Caroline, isn't she elegant?!


As you can see, I had another go at a Starburst pattern, I thought it would look like the flash from Caroline's camera! The papers are from a magazine last year, they are very bright! To calm down the busy-ness I embossed a strip of cream pearlescent card with a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder, then fussy cut Caroline and mounted her on foam pads. Her shades and the camera lens have Glossy Accents applied. I'll list the Promarkers I used below the post.

My embellishments are the knotted ribbon and the glasses charm, which was a RAK from my daughter.

Do go and see my teamies' embellishriffic work, and have a go your self! Please do tell us what embellies you use!

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

Promarkers: Raw Sienna, Mustard, Canary, Buttercup; Coral, Sunkissed Pink, Blush, Baby Pink; Lime Green, Lime Zest, Ginger, Mandarin; Denim Blue, Powder Blue
