Crafty Honeys Painter

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 208

Theme 'Use A Digi' 

The sponsor is StitchyBear Digital Outlet with a 7 image prize pack. To win main prize you MUST use an Image from our store. Runner up prize for person using none store image is $3 to spend in the StitchyBear Digital Outlet. So everyone can win something :)

For this week I chose the digi Crafty Honeys Painter by Scrapper's Delights available from the StitchyBear Digital Outlet for our mini team to work with.
For the background I die cut some house and roof shapes.
Next I coloured the houses with various shades of red Promarkers, and other colours for the roofs, windows and doors.  The card I used was a glossy type and not great to colour on but perfect for die cutting so a bit of a compromise here.  As I was aiming for a sketchy cartoon feel I did not think it mattered that the Promarkers would not blend well on this type of card stock.  To finish off I used Ice Stickles on all the windows, go to have that bit of bling :)
The next step was to airbrush my background, red top and bottom as I am going to add red lace here and a sky effect in the middle.
Time to assemble the background with the lace, houses and a sentiment road band which I created digitally and printed.
Digi colouring time.
I forgot to take a photo of the digi when I had finished her (coffee was calling hahahaha) so have had to crop her out from the finished card to show you the red Liquid Pearls I added and also red Stickles which I lightly painted on her dress and the end of the paintbrush.
 And here is the complete card - yes ladies, when it is your birthday you have every right to 'Paint the Town Red' :) :) :)

Thanks for looking and hope you have a happy crafting day:)


  1. What a bright and fun birthday card for a young at heart lady to enjoy on her special day. .....that can't be me as I'm looking at all those gleaming windows and thinking that you've just added another job to my 'to do' list for today ........thank you treasure :-)

    I do really like the town scene that you have created for the birthday girl, in her sparkling party dress, to take you up on the suggestion of your most fitting sentiment. Your lace is so subtle but adds some lovely texture and class. But ......I'm still drawn to all those windows with very mixed feelings :-) :-) :-)

    Lots of love xxx ♥ ♥ ♥
