One Stitch At a Time challenge #194

Hi there and we have another lovely challenge for you at OSAAT

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 #192
 and the runner up gets a $3 prize.
But to win main prize you have to use a digi available from the site .

The image i was given the chance to play with is steampunk profile by Alipeeps Art and is available at the Stitchy Bear Outlet

She is a lovely lady with long flowing hair and i had much fun colouring her and making her into a card.

I foun some lovely foiled A4 card that i folded in halft to give me an A5 card with that gorgeous gold and black band down the side on the right.  I ten added some black spiderweb fabric that i had in a swap box last year and then layered the image onto copper coloured adorable scorable card and then onto a embossed gold card.  I then finished her off by adding a few cogs to the card as that was the only steampunk embellishment i had at the date this is my second steam punk card and i quite like steampunk...

I used the following copic colours for the image

Skin E 00, 01, 02 and R 20 for her cheeks
Hair E 04, 07, 09
Lips R 36, 38

And finally a gold pen and some Martha Stewart glitter glue for the cogs in her hair! Fairly simple the hardest thing i found was getting her hair right!

I hope you like my inspirations and would love for you to leave a little love xx


  1. Wonderful coloring. Like the spiderweb fabric & cogs added. The gold works well for this.

  2. Wow Anita what incredible colouring of the image's hair .....its got so much richness and gloss. You do seem to have an affinity with steampunk ..I love the shiny and embossed papers. What an awesome card. Love Ingrid xx

  3. Your coloring of the hair is wonderful. I just can't do hair for some reason. I try but never comes out the way I want.

  4. Awesome card Anita. A super big WOW to the hair colouring, not easy to do but you certainly cracked it bringing the whole digi image to life :) :) :) Hugs Jane xxxxxx

  5. This is stunning! The hair in particular is just perfect - looks so real. The metallic effect from embellishments and matting finish it off perfectly.

  6. Beautifully coloured image - love the red hair although I may be a bit biased! ;-)
