Use a Digi

That's the new challenge over at One Stitch At A Time. Easy-peasy to enter, just make a project, any project, using a digi stamp. Doesn't have to be a Stitchy Bear digi stamp but if you do use a Stitchy Bear product, you will be entered into the draw to win the mini-collab of images used by the OSAAT design team this week. If you enter with a non Stitchy Bear image, you will be entered into the draw to win a $3 voucher to spend in the Stitchy Bear store. :)
 
For this week's challenge I chose this gorgeous Klimt inspired image from Hope Jacare Doodles, called Lady Klimt Esq:



I wanted to colour this image with really bright, jewel-like colours so I used Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic Drawing Inks to colour her in and matted the image onto gold mirri card and used a black card blank for lots of nice contrast. I also dabbed some Stewart Gill Byzantium metallic paint through a stencil onto the card blank to add a bit more shimmer and shine and finished things off with some flowers and a few gold-coloured gemstones.
 
I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

Ali you really threw me a curve ball with this image, I didn't have a clue where to start with it but I am really glad you chose it for us as it took me out of my comfort zone.

Love how bright yours is and your die cut is a great addition.

Love Mandy xxx (your OSAAT DT Sister)
