Anything Goes

This week's challenge at One Stitch at a Time is Anything Goes. It does exactly what it says.. you can enter any kind of project you lie, using whatever materials you want. :)
 
For my creation, I made a pretty thank you card using this sweet Blue Bells image by Gingerloft:

 
I coloured the image in with my Prismacolor pencils for a nice soft effect and cut it out with my favourite Spellbinders die:


To decorate my card I decided to have a play with my washi tapes. I spent last weekend at a great scrapbooking retreat with some online crafty friends and one of the classes we did was on ways to use washi tapes. I loved the idea of covering a piece of card with washi tape to make a patterned background and thought I'd try it out on this card. :)
 
 
I added a stamped greeting (using a Stampin' Up! stamp) and mounted my die-cut image on foam pads.
 
You don't need to use a Stitchy Bear product to enter the OSAAT challenge but if you do you'll have a chance to win our main prize. Entries not using a Stitchy Bear product will be entered into the draw to win a $3 gift voucher to the Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet.

I adore bluebells Ali - I can smell them by just looking at the picture. We had a wood full of them nearby when I was a little girl. Your card has made me think back - this is a gorgeous image.

Hugs to you Sue Pxxx OSAAT teamie
