OSAAT #172 - Use a Digi

The theme at One Stitch at a Time this week is 'Use a Digi' so come along and join us. It was my turn to choose for me and my team mate Josephine and I decided to choose 'Bah Humbug' by Stitchy over at the Stitchybear Digi Outlet. This will be my first Christmas card for this year.

The card blank is a large square by Joanna Sheen. I found a copyright free image of roof tiles on the internet and matted that on to Papermill dark blue card which acted as night time sky! It still had a few Memory Box clouds showing in the sky. I used Distress Ink to give a gentle tinge to the edges of the clouds. The sentiment was generated on the computer and I cut it with an X cut large die. The image was coloured with Promarkers and his belt and boots are covered with Sakura's 3D crystal lacquer to make them look glossy. I cut him out by hand leaving a very small white border. He's raised on 3D pads to give depth to the design.

Please check out the OSAAT challenge blog for details of the prizes.

I'm entering my card in to the following challenges:

  1. Love the sentiment! When our kids were young, we had to make up all sorts of stories for them because our house doesn't have a chimney either!

    Love the traditional colours, and of course, my shouldn't Father Christmas be a bit grumpy?

  2. Like the whimsy Santa. Ho Ho Ho. Especially like the roof.
