OSAAT #210 Anything Goes

This week's theme is Anything Goes. Come along and join us at One Stitch at a Time. I chose Coosty Creations' Squirrel image from the Stitchybear Digi Outlet. It's actually a Squirrel image and paper pack and you do get four backing papers with the image. I had already decided on my colour scheme of brown and grey so I didn't use the backing papers.

I coloured the image with my Promarkers and then cut it with a Spellbinders label die. The card blank is by Joanna Sheen and the backing paper is by Costco. I matted the backing paper on to Papermill's dark brown card as the base. The image was raised on pads to give a bit of dimension to the design. The dark brown card was also used for the corners cut with a Memory Box die. Another Spellbinder die was used for the lovely shape in the top left. The die cut below the image was, I think, a Cheery Lynn die but I'm not 100% sure. Some pearls  from Wild Orchid Crafts finished it off.

Please check the OSAAT blog for details of prizes.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

  2. He looks great, Hazel! It never occurred to me that he could be a red squirrel! I've only ever seen grey ones, and there're so many around here that it's hard to remember they're not native to the UK.

  3. Hi Hazel! What a sweet and handsome card. Really like your coloring! Your die-cut embellishments are so lovely too, plus that bit of bling. Have a great week! Best, CG
