No squares allowed in here, dude!
That's right... for this week's challenge at One Stitch at a Time, we want to see you make a project that's not square. Think outside the (square) box, man! :D
For my project I worked with this sweet Mermaid Couple stamp by My Heart Pieces:
I coloured the image with my Promarkers and cut it out using the oval Framelits die set from Stampin' Up!, matting it onto a scalloped oval of patterned paper (cut with the same die set):
I made an easel card blank and decorated it with patterned paper and embossed cardstock and added baker's twine and some die-cut leafy flourishes....
...and a little stamped greeting (stamp and coordinating punch both by Stampin' Up!):
To finish things off, I used Glossy Accents on the bubbles in the image and to add "water droplets" to the mermaids' tails.
As ever, entries using a Stitchy Bear product will be entered into the draw to win our main prize and entries not using a Stitchy Bear product will have a chance to win a $3 gift voucher to the Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet. I look forward to seeing all your fabulously shaped makes! :)
