DYSU {Super Spies...}

Hi All!!  I hope you're keeping cool wherever you are!  Here in the North East USA we are experiencing a sweltering heatwave!!  But, alas, Summer is upon us and I really have nothing to complain about as I get to hang with my babies, swim, play outside, craft and just "be".  Life is good. 

And there's a fabulous new challenge starting today at the DYSU challenge blog!  This week's theme is for you to create a project based on a movie!  Our weekly sponsors rock, of course, and there's one this week that is especially near and dear to my heart - Tiddly Inks.  I am a past designer for TI and continue to play when I can and swoon over all of Christy's amazing designs.  So, naturally, this week I chose to use one of the new Wryn Images - Super Spy.  I mean, really?  Does she get any cuter!?!?  The inspiration for my card came from the classic mid-1980's film 'Spies Like Us'.  Hysterical, slapstick, Chevy Chase and Dan Ackroyd at their funniest.

Here's my project:
I printed Wryn and colored her with my Copics.  I used Glossy Accents for her glasses and set her aside to dry.  My papers are from Basic Grey and Recollections. 
I used a fantastic canvas label sticker and buttons - both from Basic Grey to embellish.  I added some basic stitching on the perimeter and some zig zag down the center but switched out my neutral thread for bright red on my sewing machine.  The center layers are cut using my MFT Fishtail Flag STAX. 
Once everything was assembled, I added a few metallic sticky back pearls scattered throughout my project for a bit more texture. 

I do so hope you come join us over at the DYSU Challenge blog and share your movie inspired projects!!

Crafty Hugs!
Meredith
