One Stitch at a Time Challenge 132

This week at One Stitch at a Time, we're sponsored by ...

Our theme this week is Bingo!

I decided to work with the middle line down - embossing, digi and lace. (Whichever line you use, you must come through the middle square.)

I got to work with a gorgeous silhouette from Floppy Latte called Flights of Fancy.

I started by reversing it in Photoshop elements, so that the image is white on a black background. Then, I printed it onto film. I decided to use some Stickles - I've got various shades, but don't often bring it out. When I want glitter, I tend to go for either Glamour Dust or Sakura Stardust pen, but the first has a limited colour range, and the second doesn't work too well on film. So, I put Stickles in Blueberry on the back of the image over the swirly background, but not the fairy herself. When that dried (and it took ages!) I mounted the film onto some blue holographic card backed by silver mirror card, using brads.

I embossed the background black card in my Wizard, and added some pretty white lace to finish.

Hope you can join us this week!
