Dancing in the Rain!!!

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 #169

Theme ' Not Square'

The sponsor this week is CCW with 3x Pro Markers.

 A wonderful prize I think as we can never have to many ProMarkers amongst our supplies :) You can still enter without using a StitchyBear digi and the prize for the winner is $3 to spend in the store.

OSAAT is also having a DT call.  We are a team of mixed ability crafters who love what we do. We are very easy to get along with and are such a caring group. We receive email reminders to keep us up to date with our challenges, have ways of keeping in touch with all our teamies and we are always there for one another when needed.. Yes we are like a little family... A little family who is looking to adopt a few new crafters to our group. Please contact Choccy - telling her a little about yourself and remembering to send a link to your blog. Our DT call will stay open until Sunday 7th July

This week I had to choose a digi from our awesome 'BBKakes', sounds easy but if pop on over to the store you will see how hard it was to choose, so many wonderful pieces of artwork :). In the end I opted for 'Rainy Days' available from the StitchyBear Digital Outlet.  Such a fun image and as this challenge is 'Not Square' I felt would work perfectly with the curve of a rainbow as the basis for the card shape.

  • Digi -  'Rainy Days'  by BBKakes available from the  StitchyBear Digital Outlet and attached to card with foam tape.  Just to be a little wacky I could not resist colouring one glove purple and the other pink!!!
  • White Linen card from Craft Creations
  • Rainbow background by me
  • Umberella with sentiment printed on acetate and adhered to card with glue dots which are hidden by the brad and wee bow.  I thought the sentiment was just perfect :)
  • Gems representing the rain drops from my stash
