One Stitch at a Time Challenge 63 - Bling It On!

This week at One Stitch at a Time, we want to see some bling! Gem stones, mica, glitter - you name it, we want to see it!

We're sponsored by One Stop Card Crafts who're offering a £10 voucher,.

And, Digis with Attitude who're offering three digis of the winner's choice.
This week, I got to work with someone who's new to the Stitchy Bear shop - Glitterbabe. I chose her 'Bluecap' image, even though I have no idea what a bluecap should look like. (I'm really not knowledgable about flowers at all!) But, going from the name, I decided on some blues!

I printed the image onto watercolour paper, then painted it with Twinkling H2Os. The background was white card, stamped with Versamark ink and clear embossed before being sprayed with Radiant Rain in matching shades. The flower is from Prima, similarly sprayed, and finished with a gemmed brad, and I added a couple of feathers to complete. The lace is from Hobbycraft, but because it's so transparent, I threaded some white ribbon through it to give more emphasis to the white.

I hope you can join us this week.

I had a comment last week about the fact that I'd specified how I'd fulfilled one of the challenge requirements, and I'm not sure if I offended or not. Please, don't be offended! I'm on a couple of DTs and I know it's sometimes hard to see if someone has fulfilled the requirements - especially if they don't describe how they made their project and if something could be done in several ways, or if the photograph is small. I'm just trying to save you from having to scour through the post to find out! If it's more irritating than helpful then I'll stop!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Paper Pretties where they want flowers,
Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge where anything goes,
Truely Scrumptious where anything goes,
A Spoonful of Sugar where anything goes,
Clear it Out which wants us to use any colouring medium (Twinkling H2Os and Mica sprays)
Get Hippity with Ippity where they want a main image of flowers,
Bunny Zoe where they want us to use lace,


Kaboodle Doodles where they're playing 'Tic Tac Toe' or where I come from 'Exes and Ohs' and I've chosen the bottom row - digi, lace and flowers,
2 Sisters where they want us to use a digi,
Little Claire where they want sparkle (Twinkling H2Os and Mica Sprays).
