OSAAT - Biding Time Candle Card

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.

We have some changes going on with the way we run the challenge, we are now going fortnightly with a prize for the random winner and badge for the Top 3 chosen by the DT.

Challenge #219

Theme 'Anything Goes with a Die' 

The sponsor is StitchyBear Digital Outlet with a 5 image September prize pack. Remember if you use one of the store items you can enter as many times as you want <g>.

This week I worked with the image Biding Time by Barb Jensen and decided to make something I have not made before, a candle gift card.  So much fun and I must thank Eret for her fab template which I download, all set for A4 paper size.

To begin with I printed the image with very faint lines and then coloured her with Promarkers.
Promarkers used
Now, this is a 'die challenge' so along with the die used to mount the digi and the sentiment I also used Cottage Cuts Bella Leafy Branch.

Next I airbrushed the die cut with my Promarkers and cut it into sections.  Two part were used on the main rose bouquet and the small piece on the candle box section.  To finish off the bouquet I used some ready made roses and a tiny pink bow.
Here is the third part of the cut die again with a pink rose.

So come along and join in the OSAAT Anything Goes with a Die challenge for a chance to win this fab digi pack :)
