One Stitch at a Time Challenge 245

Well, this is my last post as a DT member of the One Stitch at a Time team. My first post was on 4th July 2010 - more than five years ago! It's been fun, but, although I'm still making cards, I've discovered other things which also take up my time and I decided that it was time to step down. I'd like to thank all the other DT members past and present who've made the team such fun to be a part of, and especially our previous DT co-ordinator (Choccy) and, of course, our current co-ordinator, Jane. Thanks for your encouragement and for the friendly and efficient way you've run the team.

So, now, onto the challenge. The theme is, 'Anything Goes with Gratitude', so anything you feel grateful for. In my case, I'm grateful for flowers which brighten up our world with such a gorgeous array of colours. I love colour, the brighter the better, and I can't think of any single thing in nature which provides such a wide range of colours than flowers. For this challenge, I used an image from Floppy Latte Designs called Pretty Sprig of Flowers. I've coloured it using a new (to me) colouring medium - Inktense pencils.

I printed the image onto watercolour paper. I like the fact that I use less water using these pencils compared to most watercolour techniques, so it's especially suited to digi-stamps since there's less chance of smudging the image.

The background paper is from Paper Pizazz and I made the flowers using some of the Sizzix Susan's Garden range of dies, a couple of Spellbinders dies, Pan Pastels and Liquid Pearls.

And that's it! I hope you can join us this time.

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

Such a beautiful creation Josephine and your colouring with the Inktense pencils is awesome, so soft :) Totally agree with your take on this challenge, I am held in awe of flowers and butterflies, the most wonderful colours and delicate petals/wings - the pure magic of nature and a wonderful canvas that surrounds us all the time. So sad that this is you final challenge with us, it has been a wonderful journey treasure and thank you on behalf of SB and the DT for all your amazing input, friendship and love. Wishing you the very best in your new ventures hunny :) xxxxxx
