Just Sayin...Anything Goes at OSAAT

This week at One Stitch at a Time (OSAAT), our theme is Anything Goes. 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 of 7 images! If you don't use a store image, you'll still be in the drawing to win a $3 gift certificate. 

I had lots of fun with this Cutie by Beary Dust Stamps:
This image has bold shadowing, so I decided to use paper piecing rather than coloring. I did color her skin with Copics. I used some tulle to give her a fishnet top! I stamped the sentiment (Hero Arts, I think) in Broken China distress ink. The notebook edging on top was cut with a Pagemaps die. I edged it with Tea Dye and Antique Linen distress inks.

The text-patterened papers are from a Bazzill set. I cut one sheet with a die from the same Pagemaps set. The background paper was sprayed with a blue Tattered Angels glimmer mist.

I painted some Prima wood shapes with white acrylic paint, and stamped the sentiment (Rogue Redheads Designs) with more Broken China ink.


Thank you for visiting, and hope you'll join us this week at One Stitch at a Time,

Wonderful job on the paper piecing. Like the use of the the fishnet. Reminds me of when my daughter was younger. She is now a senior in college.

What a good idea to paper piece Cg - I couldn't get this image to print properly at all so used another digi from SBO. I had to giggle at the fishnet top - she's a sassy minx! You have chosen a brilliant sentiment, just right for the feel of the card.

Hugs to you Sue Pxxx
