One Stitch at a Time Challenge 240

This time at One Stitch at a Time, we're having a colour challenge - you can make anything you like so long as it's got the following colours: red, white and blue.

Our sponsor, as usual is:

See the challenge blog for details.

This time, I used an image from Barbara Jensen called Parrot.

I printed the image onto watercolour paper and coloured with promarkers. I added some shading to the background with Pan Pastels. For the white background, I first die cut using a hexagon border die before embossing with a Cuttlebug folder. I wanted a little more red visible, so I added some red Perle cotton to the hexagons. The card blank is a blue pearl shade from Craft Creations.

I hope you can join us this time.

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

Crafty Creations where the theme is 'red, white, and blue',
Crafty Gals Corner where anything goes,
Creative Moments where they want embossing,
Penny's where anything goes,
Doodle Pantry where anything digital goes,
Through the Purple Haze where they want bright colours,
Crafts Galore Encore where anything goes,
Lia Stampz where anything goes,
Paper Creator where anything goes.

Love how you stitched on the side! This is one of my favorite images from Barbara Jensen. I have him on a stick stuck in a plant at work so I can see him all the time.

TTFN,
