The Squirrel and the fox DT

#68 - Use a Die Cut or Punch

Happy Easter Friends!!

Well it's been a while but I am happy to announce that I have found my inspiration again and have recently joined The Squirrel and the Fox Dt team
and today is the first challenge that I have joined in as a DT member
#68-Use a Die cut or Punch
sponsored by the very fabulous Kenny K

Don't you just love Kenny K images I love love love them! and was so excited that my first card for this Dt team was to use one of there super fun images
Our very generous sponsors Kenny K are giving 5 wonderful digi's for the  prize for this challenge.

This is what I have come up with using one of the sponsors images

 Isn't this just an excellent image to make a male card I couldn't resist this image.
As you can see I have made an Easel card using Kraft card stock as the base of the card and distress inking the edges with my favourite Tim Holtz vintage photo distress ink.
I also used Kasiercraft paper Timeless classics. Its such a good classic paper for bloke cards
To tough it up a bit so that the card base fit the image I have also used a Tim Holtz washi tape
and a really cool checker plate embossing folder from my stash. Which I embossed kitchen tin foil on jac paper and then grudged the foil with stazon saddle brown ink.
(very cool effect if I don't say so myself)
a piece of cardstock which was then crumbled  and distressed and inked and attached behind the image
using The Tim Holtz tiny stapler
I have coloured the Kenny K image with my copics on x-press it blending card  and it was fussy cut
 and attached to a wobbler which was a really cute idea to create a bit of movement
Part of this challenge is to use a die cut or punch so of course I had to use the Tim Holtz
Alterations Steampunk die which really fit the card design I cut these out on foil and grudged them up using the stazon ink
I really enjoyed taking part of this challenge and now its your turn get on over to The squirrel and the fox blog and join this challenge  to win 5 great digi's from Kenny K
thanks for looking
