OSAAT #175 - In the Summer
One Stitch at a Time, is 'In the Summer'. I chose April's 'A Buggy', at Reece's Scrap Pieces at Stitchybear Digital Outlet.
Yikes, I thought - how do I make this image fit the theme? As it turned out it I didn't find it too hard to imagine that it was my holiday buggy all packed and ready to go holiday in the sun. I coloured the image with my Promarkers and cut it with a Spellbinders grand nestie. After cutting I used Distress Ink Squeezed Lemonade for the edges. The blank card base is an 8x8 square by Joanna Sheen and the bronze Mirri card is also from JS. I matted the First Editions, Hideway, glitter paper on to the tan Mirri card as the mat. The circular diecuts in the bottom left are by Marianne Creatables and the one in the top right is the centre of the same die. I then used my Whimsy pennant die to make the bunting which I strung together with orange silk and added the word Fun in red with my Whispers fine pen. I also added Sun 1 to the number plate on the buggy - I hope that's acceptable and not seen as altering the digi. :( The lights were 'coloured' with a Sakura gelly roll pen, diamond, to give a hint of glass perhaps? Once the elements were all put together it looked OK and I think it passes muster.
The prizes can all be checked on the OSAAT blog - please come and join and check them out.
