One Stitch at a Time Challenge 194

This is the last One Stitch at a Time challenge of 2013, so it's an 'anything goes'! And, it's going to last for five weeks, so you've got loads of time to enter.

Our sponsor is Stitchy Bear Digital Outlet

This week, I got to work with an image from Cootsy Creations. I went to the shop, looking for a Christmas image because, well, it's that time of year! But I spotted this image, called Mehendi Peacock, and I couldn't click away. I love peacocks anyway - it's the colours! And the papers included in this image are absolutely gorgeous. Anyway, enough of that. This is what I came up with.

As usual, I coloured the image with Promarkers. I loved the papers so much, all I did after that was use some gold mirror card for matting and left it at that! The image matt uses a Spellbinders Grand die.

I hope you can join us some time over the five weeks of this challenge!

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

Artistic Impressions where the theme is anything goes/favourite colours,

Oh my word Josephine, this card is absolutely stunning ....just look at your amazing colouring of the peacock image ....quite takes my breath away. Beautiful. I love the gold die cut frame ...It fits with the delicacy of the peacock feathers in the backing papers so effectively. Love Ingrid xxx
