One Stitch at a Time Challenge 126

This week at One Stitch at a Time, it's that easiest of all challenges: Anything Goes!

Our sponsors this week are
where you can win this month's collaboration

This week, I got to work with an image from the selection at Lil Diva called Woodland Scene which is available at the Stitchy Bear shop and as part of the collection above.

The image is gorgeous, and doesn't need a lot of work - in fact I could have left it as I printed it, but I thought I'd try out something a little different. I dabbed some Distress Ink onto the image using an Ink Duster brush. That gives quite a subtle effect. I started with Mustard Seed in the centre, shading to Wild Honey and finishing with a bit of Fired Brick towards the outside. The paper is from Papermania, and I finished with some pretty metallic gold ribbon and some sticky gems which I coloured with Promarker.

Hope you can join us this week.

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

Papertake Weekly where anything goes,

The colouring on this image is amazing, just like the dappled sunlight coming through the trees on an Autumn walk in the woods last year. Truly gorgeous :)
