OSAAT #180 - Use a Digi



Come and join us at One Stitch at a Time for this week's challenge - number 180, Use a Digi. It was my turn to choose an image for my team buddies, Josephine and Shell so I hope they like the image I chose. It's called Steampunk and it's by BBKakes over at Stitchybear Digi Outlet. You can choose to use the image with or without a frame but I like the framed one.(It's good to have a choice!)

My card is a large ivory coloured square by Craft UK. The purple card is from Papermill and the black Mirri board is by Joanna Sheen. I embossed them both with a Cuttlebug folder of Cogs. I set the two embossed panels at an angle and after colouring the image with my Promarkers I cut it round the frame and centred it over the two panels. I coloured the iris of her eyes, hoping that it would look as if she had those weird coloured contact lenses in but they just look odd to me! Never mind, I tried. I used the cogs from a sheet of steampunk stamps by Sue over at Joanna Sheen. I embossed them with silver embossing powder and cut them out very carefully. I decoupaged them over the cogs at the bottom left corner of the image and then embossed another set and put them in the top right to balance the design a bit more. I used black teardrop gems top left and bottom right. A clock charm completed the design and I tied that up with some black silk as the final embellishment. The gems are from Create and Craft but I can't remember where I bought the clock charm, sorry.

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

  1. I know what you mean - a casual glance and you wouldn't know we'd used the same image! Love what you've done here - those offset mats look great, and the softer colours work really well.

  4. You look as though you had fun creating this card round the terrific SteamPunk Digi Hazel and I am in awe of how it has turned out. All the embossing, cogs, colour matching and charms all compliment the image so well .... and I don't think her eyes look odd at all :-) xxIngridxx
