Hello folks.  We have another challenge at One Stitch At A Time so how about popping over to see all the fabulous creations by the design team.

Challenge #186

Theme 'Anything Goes'

It was Ali's turn to pick for our group this week and she chose the beautiful 'Blue Bell' digi by Gingerloft, I love flower digi's, well I just love flowers in general - natures painted canvas :)

The sponsor for this challenge is StitchyBear Digi Outlet Prize giving all the digi images that the team used in challenge 184 To win main prize you must use an Image from our store.  Runner up prize. For person using none store image... Prize is $3

For my card I used the poem 'Bluebell' by Emily Bronte which I typed in a script font and then applied an embossed appearance in Photoshop. Once printed I tried something I have not done before - scrunched it up into a small ball then flattened it out.  Have to admit it was a bit hard to do, bit like the feeling book lovers get if they have to write comments on the pages for future reference. I printed the digi twice and fully coloured one  image and only the leaves of the other so I could decoupage them over the edge of the mount.  Next I played around with my lace stash, choosing four types of lace and overlaid these on the background.  Next I cut the didi out using Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 20 and the lacy mount below using Spellbinders- Adorning Squares.  To finish off I added a small folded section of lace with three flowers which I coloured with Promarker Bluebell and draped a pearl string around too.

  • Lace, pearls and flowers from my stash
I am entering this card into the following challenges:-


  1. Oh what a beautiful card ......I love the writing of the Bronte sisters and Emily Bronte's "Bluebells" never fails to move me. Then Bluebells themselves, giving such beauty in shaded, damper places ...what heroes those little flowers are. And look how stunningly you have treated your Bluebell with that gorgeous lace, pearls and die cut mount. Yes, it's so true that the simple things in life give so much pleasure and I'm experiencing that pleasure through your wonderful creation Treasure. Love you xxx ♥
