OSAAT #164 - Use a Digi

The challenge this week at One Stitch at a Time is Use a Digi and I'm sure you'll be able to fulfil this challenge! Come and join us and you might be lucky enough to win the images used by he design team on challenge 162. Check out the challenge blog to see the prize structure.

For this week's card I had to choose the image for me and for Josephine and I hope she likes the image I chose - it's Rustic Bench by Tami of Ginger Loft over at Stitchybear Digi Outlet.

My card blank is an 8x8 square by Joanna Sheen. I coloured the image with my Promarkers and then cut it with one of my new X Cut large dies. After cutting I used Distress Inks on the edges and then matted it on to a Spellbinders grand nestie label in dark green card by Papermill. I embossed a square of white paper with a Crafters Companion embossalicious folder and matted that on to more dark green Papermill card. I then affixed the image mat on to the embossed panel. It still looked a little bare but I don't like anything too fussy so I sat and thought about it for a while. I eventually decided to use my new Memory Box die 'Summer Border' with white card. Once again I used my Promarkers, to colour the little flowers, and Distress Ink before adding it to the bottom edge of the white panel. I think it looks quite cute.
