Using My Favourite.

The challenge this week over at the OSAAT challenge blog is to 'Use Your Favourite' and our smashing sponsor for this weeks challenge is Creative Craft World with a prize of three Promarkers.

To win this brilliant prize you will need to use one of the hundreds of gorgeous images in the Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps store. If you use a non Stitchy Bear image you will be entered into a draw for a prize of a $3 gift coupon to spend in the store. Using a non Stitchy Bear image you may enter the challenge three times only.

 Why not pop along and check out the designs and be ready for our Stitchy Bear only Challenge in June, exciting stuff!

For my card I used Steampunk Fairy by Delicious Doodles.  I've flip her to face the other way and left her very plain except for some Diamond Sparkles so that she is looking into a mirror and seeing herself looking fabulous. The original image was shades of grey but I've given her a sepia tone  appearance. She only has to Make a Wish!

The background paper is from My Craft Studio's 'Tinkering with Steampunk' and the image of the girl in the mirror came from a CD I bought on Ebay.  I cut the frame with the help from a couple of Spellbinders dies and had great fun using some Debbie Moore's Metal Magic over it.  I covered some Spellbinders Sprockets with the Metal Magic too.  The stamped sentiment is from a stamp set by Katy Sue Designs called Wishes and Vines.

My favourite, well... definitely playing with the Metal Magic and using the Spellbinders dies, after all, I can't cut butter straight!

I would like to enter the following challenges:-

Bugaboo Stamps ~ Things with Wings
Crafty Calender Challenge ~ Things with Wings
Fairy tale challengeblog ~ Anything with Wings 
Glitter Geeks Week 19 ~ Wings & things
