OSAAT #208 - Use a Digi
This week the theme is Use a Digi so come along and join us at One Stitch at a Time. It was Josephine's turn to choose an image for our mini team and she chose Ike's 'Dragon', available at the Stitchybear Digi Outlet.
I coloured the image with my Promarkers and then tore him out! I used Distress Ink in Barn Door on the edges - it's the fire in him. The image was raised on foam pads to lift him up off the mat for some dimension. My card blank is by Joanna Sheen. The pearlescent card in that lovely bluey grey colour was bought at the Bluewater Craft Fair a couple of years ago but I have no idea who supplied it. I embossed it with a Crafter's Companion embossalicious folder and then raised it on foam pads. I wrapped three strands of Creative Expressions' baker's twine round the mat before fixing. The red heart just behind the sentiment is cut with my new X Cut nesting die set. The only other embellishment is a small brass heart tied to the twine on the left. I think this heart was a freebie in a magazine but I can't be sure.
Please check the OSAAT blog for details of the prizes.

Well, that's it for this week. My son and daughter in law are coming up for a visit on Tuesday and they'll be travelling up here from Kent. On Wednesday we're off to my brother's funeral in Lincolnshire. I'm sorry that I won't be visiting you over the next week. I hope you all enjoy the challenge and I'll catch up with you all when things are back to normal here.
Thanks for your comments.
