Twit Twoo - OSAAT challenge #192
This weeks challenge at One Stitch At A Time was my turn to choose an image, and I picked the Owl from Sentimental Susan.
This weeks theme is: use a digi and is sponsored by the Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet and the winners prize is all the images the DT used in challenge #190.
Here is my creation.
This week I wanted to try something different, as the image had quite large sections to make up the picture, I decided to do a bit of paper piecing.
I printed the image twice and cut out each section. I went through the scrap box and found suitable bits of paper and card.
I then covered each section with the chosen paper and cut it out again and inked around the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. When all the sections were covered in the chosen paper I then put the image back together by sticking it on to the other printed image. I stuck some pieces flat and added foam pads to other sections to make the image more 3D.
I stuck the image on to a piece of card with a wood grain effect, then on to a kraft card blank. I finished by added jute string down one edge.
