OSAAT #209 Favourite Things


This week at One Stitch at a Time the theme is Favourite Things. I chose the image 'Balloon Boy 1' by BBKakes at the Stitchybear Digi Outlet. The card is for my great nephew's second birthday and as I used 'Birthday Boy 1' for William's first birthday I thought it was ideal to use the same little boy for his second birthday. Thanks BBKakes.

The card blank is a large square by Joanna Sheen. The checked backing paper is by Papermania and it's matted on to Papermill's pale blue card.as the base. I coloured the image with my Promarkers and after cutting with my Xcut guillotine I used Distress Ink in the colour Barn Door on the edges. I used my Xcut heart nesting dies for the extra balloons and for the sentiment. I distressed the edge of the sentiment heart after printing on the computer. I added three small Card Cani pieces to the bottom corner.

My favourites? Well, first of all, little boys! I love little boys and having had two of my own I wish I'd had another ten. Secondly, dies - any sort of dies, I love them all but hearts are pretty special. Third on my list is Card Candi which is safer than using gems on a child's card. Following on from these are Promarkers (which are usually number one on my list) and Distress Inks. Then, of course, checked paper - anything in checks or spots has to be on my list of favourites. So you can see that I've used everything that's ever on my list of favourites, come and join us and let me know what are your favourites.

Check the OSAAT blog for the prizes this week.
