OSAAT #161 - For a Mum/Mom

The theme this week at One Stitch at a Time is 'For a Mum/Mom'. I had a Stitchy image to play with this week and it's called Apple Pie. You can buy it over at StitchyBear Digi Outlet.

I used a large square card blank by Joanna Sheen. The backing paper is from a Desert Blooms pad by First Edition. I matted it on to pale peach Papermill card. I coloured the image with my Promarkers and added some shine with Sakura stardust pen to the apples and to make a smattering of sugar on the pies. I cut it with a Spellbinders grand nestie square and backed it with the scalloped nestie in the pale peach card. My new Memory Box die - Madera Corner - came out for first use. I cut it with gold Mirri board and set it at the top left of the image. I think it sets off the image beautifully. The last thing to do was to add 'Mum' in gold using my Spellbinders Romance alphabet dies. This was set at the bottom right corner.

The sponsor this week is Stitchybear with $9 to spend in the store. Check the challenge blog for full details.

  16. Hazel this is lovely. I love the backing papers. I usually buy the 8" pads in the First Edition range but got the 6" in that one and regret not waiting till they had the big one in stock as I don't use the smaller pads as much.....

    The shading on your apples is fab :)

    Hope you are OK, any news on the house front yet?

    Keeping everything crossed for you.

    Love Mandy xxx
