OSAAT #187 - Boo (or Halloween Colours)
One Stitch at a Time is Boo! (if you don't make Halloween cards then please use Halloween colours instead). My image this week is Cat Nip by Pookie over at Stitchybear Digi Outlet.
My card blank is a large square by Joanna Sheen. I embossed a sheet of Crafters Companion Core-dinations card with an embossalicious folder of giant dots, the folder is also by Crafters Companion. I sanded the dots to show a slight shade of the orange undercoat. Three lengths of Creative Expressions baker's twine was wound round the black card. I used a sheet of orange paper and stamped it with spider's webs and a sheet of green card and stamped that with bats. The paper and card both from Papermill. The little orange pumpkin was stamped with a Whiff of Joy stamp and coloured before fussy cutting. Cat Nip was coloured with my Promarkers. I cut her with a Spellbinders label die and edged it with Distress Ink, stamping spiders web round the edges. Then disaster struck! I had a black ink smudge close to her head and I couldn't use anything to hide it so I had to cut her out too. I actually like this design better than the first one so it wasn't such a disaster after all. lol I typed the sentiment on the computer, cut it out as a label and tied it in her hand.
The prize this week is from Creative Craft World and is 3 Promarkers. However, please check out the OSAAT challenge blog for full details of the prizes.
