One Stitch at a Time Challenge 141

This week at One Stitch at a Time, our challenge is to use fabric, ribbon or lace.

Our sponsors are

and

This week, a made another Christmas card - this time using an image from Kaz Crafts called Wish Upon a Star.

I added the wording in Photoshop Elements, and set the image so that the star and wording printed in grey rather than black, while leaving the little girl to print darker. I coloured the girl with Promarkers, then added gold Glamour Dust to the star. I added further sparkle to the star with a Sakura Stardust pen, and used the same pen to add some sparkle to the text.

I cut the image using a Spellbinders die in my Wizard, and matted it using larger ovals from the of the same type.

The background uses some gold-printed vellum which I backed with white card, and I matted everything on red. To finish, I've used some gold ribbon at an angle to mirror the angle of the image oval.

I hope you can join us this week.

And, if you like this or any other image or paper available on the Stitchy Bear site, there's a 50% off sale for 24 hours starting tomorrow at 5am GMT. So, what are you waiting for?
