The Squirrel and the Fox DT Challenge #72 Use something metal.

Good afternoon! I'm late with this post I'm afraid: time just ran away with me!

It's time for a new challenge at The Squirrel and the Fox! We have another great sponsor this fortnight: Delicious Doodles. A lucky winner will have FOUR digis from the shop! And all you have to do to be in with a chance is to Use Something Metal on your creation.


This wonderful image is Kingfisher in the Rushes isn't it lovely?! Near where I live there is a bird reserve where every year Kingfishers nest, they really are stunning birds!

I used Promarkers to colour the image. I added Stickles to the butterflies and dragonflies, and the bird's bill has been Glossy Accented.

I rounded the corners with my Corner Chomper. The banner is by Lawn Fawn from the Winter Gifts stamp set and the matching 'Tag You're It' die. The sentiment is by Paper Smooches from the Sentiment Sampler

The metal corner came from Whiff of Joy several years ago, and the brad is from stash.

Fly over to The Squirrel and the Fox and have a look at my teamies' fab work - and admire the fab images that Delicious doodles were kind enough to let us use! Just remember, if you're joining in with the Challenge, to Use Metal!

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x
