One Stitch at a Time Challenge 202

This week at One Stitch at a Time, our challenge is another 'anything goes'! So, whatever you want to share with us is fine, but remember, you can only enter a maximum of three times if you don't use a product from the Stitchy Bear Outlet.

The sponsor this week is

This week, I got to choose an image for Hazel, Shell and myself from Stitchy Bear herself. So, I had a look through the dozens of fabulous images, but finally decided on a silhouette. Stitchy does some gorgeous silhouettes, and I love everyone of them. The one I chose this time is called 'poppies'.

In photoshop Elements, I added a gradient over the image, changing it from black to something a little more colourful, and I added a red border.

After printing, I matted with red card, and I liked the result so much I decided to go fairly CAS for the rest of the card. I embossed some white card and picked up the vertices in the pattern with red glitter glue before matting onto more red, and that's it! I'm really pleased with the result - especially since I managed to resist the temptation to add more embellishment!

I hope you can join us this week.
