OSAAT #190 - Anything Goes

Anything Goes is the theme for this week's challenge over at One Stitch at a Time. It was Shell's turn to choose an image and she chose 'An Inviting Hug'. You can buy this digi from the Stitchybear Digi Outlet and it's by April of Reece's Scrap Pieces.

I coloured the image with my Promarkers and then trimmed it. The card blank is a large square by Joanna Sheen. I already had a sheet of 'sky' paper printed but can't remember whether it's off a CD or not, sorry. The clouds are cut with a Memory Box die and edged with 'stormy sky' Distress Ink. The silver card is from a children's activity pack. I used it to mat the sky paper on to and I cut some corners to make a 'frame' for the picture. I'm not happy with the sides of the image, they show up quite a lot on this photo but in real life it looks quite good. I might have to try and rectify that somehow but I'm not sure what I can do. I might have to sprinkle some snow. I generated the sentiment on the computer and matted it on to more silver card.

  15. Oh Hazel ...another lovely card that brings a warm smile to my heart. Your winter scene is beautiful ....The warm hugs of the snow family beneath those snow laden clouds is delightful. I am so taken with the Christmas sparkle being achieved so effectively and prettily by creating a frame with holographic paper on the silver background. Every element works so well with all other aspects of this Christmas card that I cannot help but feel the cheer of the season to come. Love Ingrid xxx
