The theme is Summer Dress for this week's challenge over at One Stitch at a Time. You can choose to use fabric, summer colours or show us your interpretation of the theme. I chose Love Seat by Stitchy and loved colouring this beautiful image. You can buy the image at the Stitchybear Digital Stamp Store and whilst you're there you'll see lots more that you will need! lol
I used a Spellbinders grand circle nestie to cut a large square Craft UK card into a circle. The green leaf backing paper is printed from a Joanna Sheen CD but I cannot remember which one! Oops, sorry. The purple pearlescent card is by Payper Box. I coloured the image with Promarkers and after cutting I used Distress Ink round the edge. The wooden sun came from Create and Craft and that was coloured with Promarkers too. The embroidered flowers are from a pack of embroidery motifs that I bought in the USA about ten years ago. They suited the colours in this image perfectly and I think are just a perfect finishing touch.
The sponsor this week is Joanna Sheen and the prize is a £10 voucher for her online store.
