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.
