One Stitch at a Time Challenge 51

This week at One Stitch at a Time, we're previewing the March collaboration - a great free gift if you spend $10 in the Stitchy Bear shop during March.  The theme of the challenge this week is 'Mothers'! Remember, Mother's Day is coming up at the start of April, and that's only one reason to make a card for a mum.

I cheated a bit with my image. It was intended as an Easter image - complete with Easter greeting, but I thought it'd be ideal as a Mother's Day image, so I used the magic of digital images to remove the sentiment.

Isn't it a lovely image? I coloured it with Promarkers, then added some further shading with my Coloursoft pencils blended with Baby Oil. I dabbed a little Versacolor ink in Cocoa in the background with a shaving brush. The paper came from a CD called 'Flower Power', but was originally in two varieties - black on white and white on black. I used PSE to change them to brown/peach tones. I've used some Spellbinder labels and the In Spades medallion die, as well as some Spellbinder swirls, and made the flowers using some Marianne Creatables dies, all in my Wizard.

We're sponsored this week by Bunny Zoe who's offering a gift voucher to the lucky winner.


Hope you can join us this week, and don't forget to check out the other DT creations!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Do You Stack Up where 'anything goes',
Papercrafting Journey where 'anything goes',
Stamp Something who want us to 'use flowers',
Crazy 4 Challenges who want us to 'use flowers',
My Grafico where 'anything goes',
CD Sunday who want Art Nouveau - well I think that pretty much sums up a lot of Hope Jacare's work!
