Make It Stitchy

This week we have a special challenge at One Stitch at a Time.
 
It's called Make It Stitchy and it's rather different from our usual weekly challenges because this week, unlike our usual challenges where you can enter using any stamp/product, you must use a Stitchy Bear product to enter.
 
We have got some awesome prizes on offer, however, as this week our sponsor is non other than the  OSAAT DT - Stitchy's Angel's - ourselves and we have all contributed prizes for the lucky winner! Check out the OSAAT blog for details. :)
 
If you don't have a Stitchy Bear image/product to use for the challenge, then now is the perfect time to pick one up - not only is *everything* in store currently 35% off but there is also a weekly freebie dig stamp, which is yours when you spend just $3 in store. And don't forget, there's also a whole bunch of brand new digi stamps from me now in-store. :)
 
For my DT card for this epic challenge, I've worked with Ike's Art gorgeous Angel 2 image:
 
 
I coloured the image with my Promarkers and fussy cut it out and added some sparkle to her wings with some Stickles:
 
 
I decided to have a play with my Pan Pastels for the background - I blended 3 different colours onto white card for a kind of sunset effect and then pressed Versamark ink through a circle stencil (made by simply punching a circle out of a scrap of card) and heat embossed it using Stampendous Frantage embossing powders:
 
 
I stamped a sentiment in black ink using a Tim Holtz stamp and then stamped some flourishes around the edges of the panel and heat embossed with a sparkly gold embossing powder:
 
 
To finish things off, I matted the completed panel onto sparkly blue card, attached it to a white card blank and attached the cut-out image using foam tape.
 
The challenge runs for a week and don't forget, for this week only, you must use a Stitchy Bear product to enter and to be in with a chance of winning our bumper bundle of prizes.
 
Good luck - I can't wait to see what you create! :)
 
I'm going to enter this card into a couple of challenges:

Wow! This has so any artistic elements. Those pastels made an amazing background and the stamped swirls look like part of the scene with your angel. I love your addition of glitter and your sentiment choice, too. Thank you for sharing it with us at The Perfect Sentiment Challenge.
