Just a Note - Anything StitchyBear Goes!

This week at One Stitch at a Time (OSAAT), it's Anything Goes with a StitchyBear Digi Outlet image. StitchyBear's Digi Outlet has hundreds of digital products from many wonderful artists. The DT is offering many fun prizes, so you'll definitely want to join in~

This week, Melissa chose Red Headed Woodpecker by Floppy Latte Designs for myself & our teammate Tracey. I decided to try my hand at coloring on cork:

I used a pressed-cork sheet (Magic Scraps) and ran it through my HP printer with...not too much trouble! I colored it with Copics and a BIC Wite-Out pen.

The printed tissue paper is by Tim Hotz, and I won it from Opus Gluei (thank you Rosemary!), and I tore the edges with a Fiskars Tear Edger. I attached the front piece with gold brads (and ZipDry glue).

The sentiment is from a Ladybug Crafts Ink set (via Simply Cards & Papercraft) and is heat-embossed in gold. It's easier to read in real life, but I do like the effect.

The flower was cut with the TH/Sizzix Rosette die from actual sheet music. I used Glossy Accents to add some gold mircobeads. The leaves were cut with a Sizzix die from a Sprite can and heat-embossed in gold.

For the scalloped red piece, I cut the cork sheet with yet another Sizzix die, and heat-embossed it in red.

I hope you'll grab your favorite image from StitchyBear's Digi Outlet and join us at OSAAT this week.

  3. Wow, Your efforts to print and colour on cork have been so worthwhile as the woodpecker looks so 'at home' on the cork. Lovely card Cg. Ingrid xx

  4. WOW awesome card CG, love the dimension you have got through the addition of your chosen embellishments. This card has such an mixed media feel about it I just want to touch it and feel it, it looks so tactile . Hugs Jane xx

  5. Like the look of the stamped & colored Woodpecker on the cork. Wonderful texture w/ layers & gold look to your creation. Not tried putting cork thru printer. I have an HP printer. Where did you buy the cork so thin? Did you use the 4" x 6" photo tray or did you use the larger tray & use the guide bars to size to the cork? Curious what size piece of cork you put thru the printer?
