Girl with hearts - OSAAT challenge 24

Happy Sunday to you and I hope the weekend has been good to you.

Sunday is challenge day at OSAAT and today it's team B who are providing all the lovely inspiration. There are some gorgeous creations for you to take a look at by the other design team members, so pop on over to see. 

The sponsors this week are Sew Many Cards and the Hobbyhabitat shop. They both have lovely things on sale and my card includes a fabulous image from SMC and a gorgeous heart frame from HH.


Do go and have a look at Stitchy Bear Stamps shop too, there are a number of new artists who are creating some gorgeous digi stamps, so there is plenty for you to choose from. The link is on my side bar.

This is the sketch we have used for this challenge and there is the option of using pink somewhere on your project, so, of course, I included both.




I used both DIs and promarkers for colouring the girl with hearts, I love mixing  media. The peach coloured circle behind the heart frame has been edges with spiced marmalade DI. The DP came from one of my 12x12 stack pads and has been edged with victorian velvet DI and frosted lace stickles, as has the frame and the image. I happen to have a heart punch that fits the frame hearts perfectly so I punched 9, edged them with the pink velvet and covered them with clear rock candy distress stickles to give them a bit of sparkle. I think they look good spaced around with some gold and burgundy different shaped hearts as well. The sentiment is from Flower Soft and the hearts from a cutlebug die.

I hope your Sunday has started well, enjoy the rest of the day.

Luv B xxxx
