My Heart Pieces and OSAAT

This week at One Stitch at a Time (OSAAT), our theme is Use a Digi. StitchyBear's Digi Outlet has hundreds of digital products from many wonderful artists, and if you use one of our products you'll be entered to win the super-duper main prize.

I used Ankhi by My Heart Pieces. I just love her work, especially her sweet little birds. Everything is colored with Copics, and I used the Blender Texture technique for the background. I enlarged the birds from the main image and gave them "wigs" with blue Sparkly Fluff.

I don't always use Prima flowers...but when I do, I use a whole bunch! I adehered them with Glossy Accents to give them some dimension, and added Liquid Pearls in different colors to the centers. 

The background was embossed using my BigShot and a Fiskars texture plate, and I inked the edges with China Blue distress ink. The mesh ribbon is actually a piece of netting from the pearl onions we had for Christmas dinner!

The banner was cut with a Spellbinders die from a shiny white paper, and stamped in China Blue with a sentiment from Clear Art Stamps' Rosy Wishes set.

What a wonderfully cheery card. Love the bright colours, those flowers framing the image are a great addition (must have taken some time to attach them all around!). That image is just great. Perfect with the colours you chose.
