One Stitch at a Time Challenge 110

This week at One Stitch at a Time, we're having an 'anything goes' week! So, show us what you've got! Our sponsors are


My image this week is from Sylvie's Stamps, available from Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps, and it's called Swans.

I was tempted to do an 'all white' card with this gorgeous image, but decided to add some silver for contrast. The image has some shading with Promarkers and I've given the background a touch of colour using some Flexmarkers.

I cut the border from silver mirror card using a Martha Stewart border punch, and embossed some white card using some Sizzix folders. The image and mat were cut using some nesties.

I loved the clean lines of the result, so I decided to simply add a sentiment (from the 99p shop!) to finish.

Hope you can join us this week.
