E is for Embellish

Today is the start of another challenge at ABC Challenges. This challenge is all about those beautiful add ons we use to glam up our cards. That's right it's  E is for Embellish and we have to use 3 or more embellishments on our cards. This challenge is sponsored by : Kenny K and Bunny Zoe.

In trying to decide which image to use, I found this very apt Craft Star over on Kenny K's site. She looks ready to go with her hot glue gun.

Here is my card for the DT, and this time I have chosen autumn tones:

For this challenge I decided to make a tri-shutter card. You can find some instructions over at split coast stampers. I used to make these cards a bit years ago and they are always fun when you want lots of small sayings or embellishments.

Here is a slightly side on view showing the embellishments:

The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Copic Xpress Card and coloured with Copic Sketch (and Ciao) Markers. The Copics used are as follows: skin: E11, E00, E000, R20, hair: E57, E55, E53, E51, pants: E35, E33, E31, E51, shoes: E37, E35, E31 top: Y26, Y23, Y21 apron: G40, G82, G85, G94  eyes: G40, G99, G85, C9, C7, C5, Belt, E39, W5, C3 tools: YR02, YR04, YR07, W1, W3, W5, C3, C00, Y21, YG93.
I then carefully cut her out before attaching her to the front with dimensionals. I added some pearls to her toolkit and a bling earring.

Here is a closeup of the craft star:

I hope you like my card for "E is for embellishments".
