One Stitch at a Time Challenge 128

This week at One Stitch at a Time, our challenge is an easy one - use a digi!

This week, I'm working with some papers from Panda Bear Designs called Sweet Melodies and I've teamed them with a beautiful set of dancer silhouettes from Stitch called Rehearsal.

I decided to make a circle flip book, and to give you an idea of it, here's a photo from above.

That gives you an idea of the overall shape, but that's only part of the story.

First Quadrant

Second Quadrant

Third Quadrant

And finally, the fourth quadrant.
I printed the gorgeous papers onto my favourite Ryman Matte coated Ink Jet card. It gives a beautiful velvety finish and the print quality is fabulous. Then, I pulled out my newest toy, a Martha Stewart Large circle cutter. I've had my eye on one for a while, but they never seem to be in stock, so when I spotted one which was in stock and reduced, I pounced! I must admit, it beats cutting round with scissors!

I printed the silhouettes (two of each with one flipped horizontally) onto the same card, backing them with a shade from the background. I then used an offcut of the silhouette prints to suspend the dancers from the 'wall' of each quadrant.

Our sponsors this week are:

This is really pretty Josephine. Love that you flipped the silhouettes in that way, really makes them seem like they are dancing in sync with one another.

Love Mandy xxx (your OSAAT DT Sister)
