One Stitch at a Time Challenge 158

This week at One Stitch at a Time, our challenge is ... Anything Goes!

We're sponsored by:

See the challenge blog for more details.

This week, I worked with a lovely image from Delicious Doodles called Fuchsia and Hummingbird.

I gave the background of the image a faint blue tint in Photoshop Elements before printing. I coloured with Promarkers, and cut the image before mounting it onto some pretty mint green pearlescent card. For the background, I embossed some Coredinations card with an Embossalicious folder (petite dot) and then sanded it.

It's a simple card, but I love that colour combination, and I like the contrast between the pearlescent and the duller shade of the Coredinations.

I hope you can join us this week.

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

Sparkles where they want birds,
Digi Makeover where anything goes,
Crafter's Companion where they want flowers, (I used a DieSire embossing folder.)
Happy Campers where the theme is 'flower power',
Stampotique SDC 94 where they want flowers,
Ladybird Crafts Ink where anything goes,
Two Sisters where anything goes,
Catch the Bug where anything goes.
