It's a Selfie

Hello.  Welcome.  Gosh Friday again!  Where does the time go?  Another wet grey day so taking the chance to do a little crafting in between the showers.  Since it's Friday it's Friends With Flair over at Unity Stamps.  Link up a project for a chance to win.  If you don't have any Unity Stamps then leave a comment and you still might get lucky.  



I inked up Unity Stamps Vicky, Catherine and Leica Girls and stamped onto MME 29th Street Cotton Candy paper.  I coloured the image with Memory Markers.  OK, I admit not a brilliant colouring job.  It looks a bit like they are in their PJ's.  Maybe it's a sleep over they wanted to immortalise with a picture.  I embossed the frame with Enchanted Gold embossing powder.  I wanted to add some more colour to the background so I took a tip from Beejay and covered the whole frame area with clear embossing powder.  This allowed me to add various pink shades of Distress Ink and spritz with water without affecting the colours.  It also gave a really cool glossy effect.  The two sentiments are both from Unity Stamp September 2012 SMAK kit.  It looked a bit bare so I added some pearls from Storyteller.
