One Stitch at a Time Challenge 218

This week at One Stitch at a Time, it's the easiest of all challenges: anything goes! So, show us what you've been up to!

I got to work with an image and paper pack from Coosty Creations chosen by my team mate Sue. It's called Princess Nataliya.

I used two papers from the pack. They're really gorgeous, and I suspect they'll be used a lot - imagine them on a wedding card, for example ...

The image was coloured with a mix of Promarkers and Spectrum Noir pencils and Pan Pastel (sky only). I'm still getting used to the pencils, but having spent a lot of time practising with the pencils recently, I struggled with my Promarkers, although I think that's because of the card. I've been using Joanna Sheen's card for Promarkers, but find it too smooth for the pencils. So, I got some of the Crafter's Companion Neenah card and, while it's got a bit more tooth for the pencils, I find it causes the Promarkers to 'leak' over the lines more than I'm used to. I'm sure I'll get used to it, but I find these transitions difficult. Still, I think the result's ok.

As well as the papers from the pack, I've used some silver mirror board and a strip of cloth I bought several years ago. There were various gold- and silver-themed patterns and they're lovely, but it's only now I've got my guillotine that I've found a (fairly) reliable way of cutting it straight! My rotary trimmer always just bent it and if you see me trying to cut straight with scissors, you're liable to hear a lot of huffing as things go wrong. And don't start me on craft knives. I do use them, but I'm always convinced I'm going to do some serious damage with them!

Anway, I hope you can join us this week.
