Anything Goes

Time for another challenge at One Stitch at a Time and it's a firm favourite - Anything Goes. And as the festive season is upon us, we're going to give you an early Christmas present... you've got a whole 5 weeks in which to enter this challenge. :)
 
The Design Team are taking a bit of a well-earned break over the Christmas period so this challenge is going to run until 11 January 2014. Don't forget that if you use Stitchy Bear products on your creations you can enter the challenge as many times as you like during that period and each entry will give you a chance to win our main prize. You can still enter without using Stitchy Bear products but you are limited to 3 entries and those entries will go into the draw to win a $3 gift voucher to the Stitchy Bear digi outlet.
 
For my creation for this challenge I used this Rose digi stamp by Crafty Girl:
 
 
The style of this digi really put me in mind of tattoo art so I went for a kind of funky, alternative style for my card. I coloured the image using my Prismacolor pencils and cut it out using a decorate oval die:
 
 
I used a card blank in a tentfold format and cut a card panel slightly smaller than my card front and covered it with washi tape in a contempory chevron pattern.
 
 
I attached my die-cut image using foam tape, overlapping the top edge of the card a little.
 
 
To finish, I stamped a greeting and trimmed it into a banner shape, matting it onto a larger banner cut from black card.
 
 
I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

Like the coloring of the Rose, die used for framing it, how you placed it over the edge and how the black & white colors make for a wonderful, striking creation/artwork.

Gorgeous Ali, I love this! The tattoo style you have gone with is gorgeous. And what you have done with the zig zag washi tape is genius.
