One Stitch at a Time Challenge 165

This week at One Stitch at a Time, our challenge is ... Make it Stitchy! You've got to use something from the Stitchy Bear shop, and if you want to add some stitching, so much the better! It's a very special week and there're lots of prizes available - check out the challenge blog for full details.

This week I worked with a sweet image from B B Cakes called Flora Fae.

See what I mean about 'sweet'? I coloured the image with Promarkers, and added a faint backgroun with Distress Ink applied with Ink Dusters. I've used Spellbinders dies to cut the image and the mat, and the doily ring used a die from Cottage Cutz. The paper is from Dovecraft's London collection, and although you cn't see it, it's rather prettily glittered. To finish I've used some flowers and pearls from my stash as well as a couple of stick-pins I've had for ages. I know they were a gift from someone online - I suspect someone I bought something from - but it was so long ago, I just can't remember! So, thanks to you, whoever you are.

I hope you can join us this week - take a look at the Stitchy Bear shop - you're bound to find loads of images and papers you'd love to use!
