Well Hello and welcome to my debut project for One Stitch At A Time Design Team!!
As some of you may know, I applied for OSAAT a while ago and was one of the chosen few to join the team. I announced the news on my facebook page - but as OSAAT work so far ahead (which I love, love, love) I was given the project, which seems ages ago now, and have been so eager to blog it but obviously had to wait until the challenge was released.
So here it is, my 1st OSAAT Design Team Challenge.
This weeks challenge is sponsored by Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet and the winner of this challenge get the entire digi set of images used by the Design Team on challenge #184.
*** To win the main prize, you MUST use a digi from the store! ***
I coloured to image in using my ProMarkers but because of the fun image wanted the character to look old but use bright colours too.
I started colouring the skin and hair and finished by colouring the outfit.
I decided on orange and purple, a perfect, wacky colour combination!!!
I wanted a combination of 'oldie' embellishments and newer, sparkly elements to keep within the 'young at heart' theme.
I cut a frame from silver mirror card using a Spellbinders die and placed it on to a piece of decorative parchment paper with a paisley design and attached it to a piece of 8 x 8 spotty paper.
I added different lace to the bottom and right side of the card and chose a combination of white paper flowers which I coloured using two different oranges, grey and white and adding 3 purple tulips.
I arranged the flowers up the side of the card and added some leaves.
To finish, I added the sentiment, "Have a swinging birthday".
