After last week's "Make It Stitchy" challenge, where we challenged you to use a Stitchy Bear product on your creation, this week at One Stitch at a Time we're back with a vengeance with a perennial favourite challenge theme - Anything Goes.
It does exactly what it says on the tin - you can enter any project, using any products you like. Of course, only entries using a Stitchy Bear product will be eligible to win our main prize but entries without a Stitchy Bear product can still win, with a $3 gift voucher to the Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet up for grabs.
For my card this week, I worked with this fabulous, rather steampunky Leather and Lace image by Delicious Doodles:
I loove steampunk stuff so I coloured the image with my Promarkers in traditional/vintagey colours of brown with rich reds and greens:
I kept with the rich vintage theme for the rest of my card, using a kraft card blank and making my own background by stamping kraft cardstock with a fabulous brocade pattern and embossing it with rich gold embossing powder:
I added a length of brown lace underneath the embossed panel and matted the image onto more kraft cardstock before attaching, adding some little metal accents in the corners. And the finished I then got out my hot glue gun and made a fabulous, vintagey flower embellisment by layering more of the brown lace (cut into sections and ruffled), a paper blossom and a gorgeous metal flower:
