OSAAT 'Tag it' and a new tutorial!

 Good Morning everyone! The theme this week at One Stitch at a Time is 'Tag it' and here is my effort! I was given the gorgeous Kitty Play by Bonna-isnt she just adorable?! She is available along with other lovely digis at Stitchy Bear Digi Store.
I was put in mind by this digi of old fashioned books I read when I was little that my Grandma kept of my mothers so I wanted to capture that in my creation.
I used My Minds Eye Wild Asparagus papers, Textured cardstock in a complimenting colour, a vellum tag to which I added a 'You're Special' Vellum sticker, gingham buttons, pink ribbon, wooden embellishments, lace and gems.
Our prize for our winner this week is 5 digis of your choice from the Stamping Boutique so please join in!

While you are here please look at my new tutorial for colouring blonde hair with promarkers-I kept being asked how I coloured blonde hair so I thought the easiest way was to put up a step by step tutorial for you all. :-)

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
The Poodles Parlour: Anything Goes
Penny's Paper Crafting Challenge: Friends
Papertake Weekly: Anything Goes
Bunny Zoe's Crafts: Lace
Craft Your Passion: Anything Goes

Crafty Ribbons/Fiskars LED canvas

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well. I am here to share a backlit canvas using my Fiskars tools in a rather unusual way. I took the canvas off from the frame and folded it in half to randomly punch across the front of the canvas. I kept the cuttings for later. I then stapled the canvas back onto the frame. Next I stapled muslin fabric across the front of the canvas. I then added Clermont Cotton Lace across the bottom of the canvas as a border. I then got out my flexmarkers and coloured the punched canvas pieces in three complimentary colours. I then asked tiny gems to the centre of each and glued them randomly like flowers across the muslin fabric.

Thank you for visiting and for all your lovely comments!
