Can You Feel The Chill???

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 #185

Theme ' Winter Wonderland'

Our sponsor this week is Creative Craft World with a prize of 3 Promarkers.  To win this prize you MUST use a StitchyBear Digital Outlet item.  With over 20 creators in the StitchyBear store it really is worth popping over to have a look.

For my DT card this week I worked with a fab digi called Skelly Gossip by Ike - unusual, funny and open to so many ideas - yep a cracking good digi <g>.  The digi is available through the StitchyBear Digital Outlet.

Now having a few ideas on how to use this digi and link it into our theme this week of Winter Wonderland I decided to really think outside the box - really how on earth can skeletons have anything to do with a winter wonderland.  I did think of having them buried in the snow with snowballs landing on them but I also had this tiny ball of wool and knitting needles I have been waiting to find the opportunity to use.  There are a few folks who will see this card who are rather partial to knitting, one of them being my sister so I now the funny side will be seen lol.

I printed a winter wonderland background and cut the window frame out with my die cutter.  I placed sheet plastic behind the window frame and then attached to the card with foam tape.  For the table I coloured some white lace with Turquoise Promarker then attached it to card, this was also attached with foam tape.  Next the really hard part - to fussy cut the skeletons, that was a job in itself but so worth the outcome.  I created the speech bubbles and cut them out, again attaching with foam tape.  To finish off the card I used blue lace to make the curtains and white cord to make the tie-backs.

Ingredients :-
  • Blue card from Craft Creations
  • Digi - Skelly Gossip by Ike
  • Window die cut and speech bubbles by me
  • Lace, cord and fabby knitting embellishment from my stash
