One Stitch at a Time Challenge 212

This week at One Stitch at a Time, the challenge is to use a digi. That's it! So why not make it a digi from the Stitchy Bear shop, and you'll be in for a chance of winning the top prize too!

We're sponsored by

This week, the image is from Hope Jacare, and it was chosen by my team-mate Jeanette. It seems to be a while since I last worked with a Hope Jacare image, and I love her slightly quirky, swirly style, so I had fun with this one.

The first thing I've got to say is that I've made a rectangular card! (Yes, squares are rectangles too, but you know what I mean.) I don't know how long it is since I did something that wasn't square, but this image just seemed to lend itself to a 5 by 7. I coloured with Promarkers, and edged with Distress Ink in Tattered Rose with a little Spun Sugar to make it slightly less peachy. The background paper is by Paper Pizazz, and the die is one of my recent purchases in the Sizzix sale. For something as lacy as this, it cuts quite easily, although the middle is solid and that might have something to do with that. I do like the result - it's lacy without being too frilly, which makes it ideal for my husband for his birthday.

I hope you can join us this week.
