One Stitch at a Time Challenge 108

This week at One Stitch at a Time, our theme is 'Use a Digi'!

Our sponsor this week is





This week, Hazel and I are both using a gorgeous image from Ike's Art available at the Stitchy Bear Shop, called Peacock.

I coloured the image with Promarkers. The paper was put together in Photoshop Elements using an enlarged, repeated area of feathers from the image and colouring it with several gradients using colours to match the image.

The flowers were made using punched shapes with added (Promarker coloured) sticky gems, with some added gold punched swirls and leaves.

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

Can You Digi It? where they want us to find our inner peacock!
Kaboodle Doodles where they want anything but a rectangle,
Anything Goes where anything goes,
Oozak where anything goes,
Cupcake Crafts where they want bugs and birds and wings and things,
ATCs and Cards with Attitude where anything goes,
Wags and Whiskers where they want us to 'say it with flowers',
4 Crafty Chicks where they want flowers,
A Gem of a Challenge where they have a photo inspiration of a beautiful aquamarine gem.

This is stunning. I love how you've used the image twice, layering a larger section behind the main image. Such a clever idea and really shows off the versatility of using digi stamps. :)
