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.  The prize this month is a $10 coupon to spend in the store :)

Challenge 265 Theme 

'Anything Goes with FLOWERS'

For my DT creation this week and our theme of AG with Flowers I used a beautiful image by Stitchy Stamps called 'Poppy'.  This is a silhouette image which I added a dark red overlay too in Photoshop.  I then duplicated the layer and then reversed it.  Both images on the two layers were then rotated to create a heart shape.  I printed the image along with two more copies of just the flower heads.  Next I decoupaged the flowers and then rubber stamped my sentiment (I have just seen how squint that looks grrrrrr).  To finish off I used some Papermania patterned paper and distressed the edges then rubbed them over with Tim Holtz distress ink, the same treatment was given to the cut and finished image topper and the card base.  Three wee white hearts and a burgundy bow finished off the card rather nicely.  The image below shows the decoupage layering of the flowers.

  • Image -  'Poppy' by Stitchy Stamps
