My first One Stitch At A Time DT project!

Today is the day of my first challenge for the One Stitch At A Time Design Team!!  This week, the theme is Anything Goes, an nice and easy one to play along with.

For my card, I am using the “In The Meadow, We Can Build A Snowman” digi, by Reece’s Scrap Pieces which is available through the StitchyBear’s Stamp Shop.
2013-10-01 11.04.45

I coloured the image using Pro-Markers.  This was my first attempt at colouring snow and I am pretty pleased with the end result!  It isn’t very easy to see from the picture above, but I used Tea Green with a blender pen to create some shaded areas on the snowman and the snow on the ground,  As I’ve mentioned before, I love sparkle, so as a final touch I added some Star Dust Stickles to represent the frosty glimmer.

The silver snowflake frame was created using the Silhouette.  I welded some small snowflakes to the outside of a circle and then cut the whole frame from some silver vinyl-type that has been lurking in my stash box for a good while!

The embossed strip underneath the image, was originally a shimmery cardstock, but I wasn’t keen once I laid it all together, so I flipped it over and used the white side inside, with a length of ribbon across the centre, in a similar colour to the background paper, which was included as one of several extra papers in the digi set.

So, back to the challenge…  As I mentioned earlier, the theme this week is “Anything Goes” and this week’s sponsor is the StitchyBear Digi Outlet.  For the chance to win the complete set of digis used by the DT in Challenge 184, simply include an image from the StitchyBear Store.  There is also a runner-up prize of $3 to spend as you wish in the StitchyBear online store for entries that do not use a StitchyBear image.  I hope to spot your entries there!!

I’m off to enter a few challenges myself with this card – just spotted a couple of  “Anything Goes” at Yumi and Fumi Handmade and Challenges 4 Everybody, not to mention Make It Sparkle over at Crafting When We Can!

This card is stunning Victoria, I love the silver frame surrounding your beautifully coloured image. brrrrr, the chill of your sparkling snow is reaching my old bones 🙂 I love the way you have picked out the white snowflakes in your backing paper with the embossed white strip topped off with a matching ribbon.
