OSAAT # 158 - Anything Goes

The theme this week at One Stitch at a Time is Anything Goes. It was Josephine's turn to pick an image for the two of us to use and she chose the Fuchsia and Hummingbird image by Teri over at Stitchybear Digital Stamp Store. Isn't it beautiful? I decided to go with the cerise/lilac fuchsia but there are many more colours that you could use.

I coloured the image with my Promarkers and then carefully cut round the outside edge. I matted it on to some bronze pearlescent card by Papermill which, in turn, was matted on to cerise Mirri board. The card blank is a large 8x8 square by Joanna Sheen. I used my Spellbinders Paris motif fancy border and added it to the bottom edge. The only thing to add then were the three pink pearls at the top right and three lilac pearls at the bottom left. The pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

The sponsor this week is Stitchybear and check out the challenge blog for full details. Someone will win all the digis used by the DT on challenge 156!!!
