One Stitch at a Time Challenge 215

This week at One Stitch at a Time, the challenge is 'boy-ish', and we're sponsored by:

This week, I got to choose from the fabulous selection of Delicious Doodles images and decided on one called 'Sunset at Sea'.

Isn't that a gorgeous image? And it gave me ample chance to use lots of glorious colours which is always a bonus as far as I'm concerned. It's not specifically 'boyish' but it's not 'girlish' either, and I'm going to send it to my son for his birthday.

The image is coloured with a mix of Promarkers and Flexmarkers. The background is one of those supplied with my version of Photoshop Elements, and I've finished off with some shaped seashells which came from a CD I've had for ages called the Crafty Image Emporium which is full of images which are no longer copyright protected. I used my flower-shaping tools to add to their texture, scoring on the right side with a narrow tool and then on the opposite side with a much wider one.

I hope you can join us this week.

This is just stunning Josephine, the gorgeous backing paper and then with the digi picking up the same colours with the addition of the pinks and yellows is striking. Got to be a winner, it is in my book :) :) :) Hugs Jane xxxxx
