One Stitch at a Time #190 Anything goes

Hi there and welcome to another wonderful challenge at

and the theme this week is ANYTHING GOES

This week we are sponsored by the lovely Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet 
with a complete set of images that we used in challenge #188
 and the runner up gets a $3 prize.
But to win main prize you have to use a digi available from the site .

This week i was given a lovely image called Fancy Free and is made by Barbara Jensen Designs and available at the store.

I had great fun in colouring her as she was a digi era i have not used before as reminded me of the 80's but at the same time youngsters seem to be wearing similar these days ......

I used an 8 x 8 kraft card blank and then used a piece of paper from My Minds Eye from 21st street and then topped it with a piece of yellow card. Then i mounted my image coloured on Copic paper that didn't blend as well as i thought it would onto another piece of MME, yellow card and the MME dotty paper. Before mounting it at an angle on the card i added a purple ribbon with some blingy flowers and put four at the corners of the picture.

To finish the front off i added lilac flower/circle rhinestone combination in alternate lines round the edge of the image. Inside the card i wrote a poem for my 13 year old niece for her birthday as she just turned 13 last week.

It reads

To help you celebrate your special day
A little ditty i send your way
A little girl no longer seen
Just a young lady entering her teens
On your journey you will see
How much fun it is to be a teen
But be aware as you will soon see
Those pesky boys will be a tease
So dont be turned just follow your dreams
To be a vet or whatever you deem
So have lots of fun and times anew
And if one day you feel unsure
Your family will be there with snuggles galore

I then mounted it onto two sets of paper and put a couple of pink lilies at the corner and around the edges on two sides i added a little bit more of the lilac bling.

 I used the following Copic colour to colour my image

Skin E 00. 01. 02 R 20 for cheeks
Hair V 12, 15, 17/ 23, 25 , 28 YR 09
Dress/ underskirt  V 12, 15, 17 / B 23, 24, 26
Legwarmers and hand warmers  01, 02, 04
TightsY 21, 23, 26/ flowers promarkers ruby,lipstick red and poppy
Shoes/Bag E 27, 25, 23
Lips R 08, 20

I would like to enter into the following challenges:

  1. It's perfect and I bet your niece loved it. I used this image a couple of years ago and gave it to a friend's daughter who was 13 on her birthday. I put her name on it and she has it on her bedroom wall. Hazel x

  2. So pretty. I love all the sparkle. Great job. Hugs Erin OSAAT teamie.

  3. This is lovely Anita - when I chose this image I don't think I had looked at it properly - all the layers of clothing - phew!
