It's time for a new challenge at OSAAT and our theme this week is 'Anything Goes'. Our rules are very simple:

1. You may enter as many times as you like when using a Stitchy Bear digi stamp to win our top prize this week of seven digi stamps. But, if you choose to enter without using one of the images from the store then you will be entered into a separate draw for $3 to spend in the store. You may enter the challenge a maximum of three times with a non-Stitchy image.

2. You must link back to our blog.

3. No back linking, it must be a new creation after our blog goes live.

My teamie, Nataliya, chose Ladybugs by Coosty Creation, I loved using this paper and image as it screamed at me Use a Poppy Promarker! So I did!

I coloured the image with my Poppy Promaker and also used a dark grey pen for the body and spots. To accentuate the spots I used a drop of Glossy Accents and cut out another flower. This was glazed too with the Glossy Accents. I've used a lovely bright red foil circle as a mat for the image. The sentiment I found on the internet and has been around for years apparently, you learn something new every day. 

This card is sitting on my hall table as a reminder that Spring is not too far away.

Hi Jennie....a very beautiful card...I love the bright and the cut out ...cheers

Ingrid Mason said...

Jennie, it looks as though you and your Poppy Promarker worked together in such harmony as you coloured the beautiful ladybugs .....they're so beautiful, especially surrounding that gorgeous central flower. The shiny accents keep bringing my eye back to the beautiful image and, like you, my thoughts turn to Spring.

Oh, what a brilliant sentiment ..perfect for this happy card and a new one to me too.

Lots of love Ingrid xxx ♥ ♥ ♥
