Retro Selfie

Hi All - bit late with this post as it has already gone live on the I LOVE PROMARKERS blog, but thats what happens when you work shifts I suppose -you have to be a bit flexible! 

I made this card for my latest DT post - the new challenge is Paper Piecing and it is sponsored by  Kenny K.. The image Ive used is called Retro Selfie 
You can find her by clicking on the link. I think she is a great image as Vintage is very "in" right now and so is the Selfie - so to combine the two is a bit of genius!! 

To make this card I printed and coloured the image with Promarkers (Listed below...) The paper I have used is all from my stash of October Afternoon - the flowers and the demin effect. I looked at a few designs using this and they were coloured like a dress with a belt but I never saw that -I always saw a separate top and shorts / skirt... What do you think?   
I printed the image out the same size on to the demin effect paper and cut out the bits that I then pieced on to this image. 
The film strip is a die from Tim Holtz which I cut from a really think matt black card which is lovely (Had to go through cutter a few times to cut right through...) 
The ribbon is as always from my stash... I don't keep the reel so I never know where its from - I just have them all in colour co-ordinated jars! I also tie'd a small camera charm with thin black ribbon. 
The greeting and Numbers are die cuts from the Memory Box and the yellow gems are from Hobbycraft. 

The Promarkers & Flexmarkers used are - 
Skin - Antique White, Blush, Soft Peach, Coral, Spice.Cocktail pink & Antique pink on her cheeks
Eyes - Capri & Powder Bue, & Lips are lipstick red.
Hair & Shoes - Raw Sienna, Sleigh Bells, Pineapple Crush, Summer Sun & Eggnog.
Stool - Lipstick red & Poppy
Camera - Henna, Cocoa, Cinnamon, Sleigh bells & Pineapple Crush.
