OSAAT Pearls and Swirls
One Stitch at a Time and this week our theme is 'Pearls and Swirls'. I was given Stitchy's the audition from Stitchy Bear digi store to play with and I loved them! We are sponsored by Digis with attitude and Flourish with a Bling so we have two prizes to offer so please come and join in! Please also look at our 'Pretty in Print' contest details-its a wonderful opportunity!
I started by glittering accents on the digis in black glitter, and then put glossy accents over them. I decided they would look great as a celebration gift set and I wanted to make a vibrant backing paper so I used thin white card and inked it with distress inks on sponges and then stamped all over it with the edge of my Tim Holtz stamp with different amount of ink to look distressed. I started with the gift bag and placed two of the digis on there, then added black coredinations butterflies with lilac gems in their centres, and then pearls swirling along the middle.
Next I made my tag with kraft card and put one black coredinations butterfly with lilac gem middle and pearl swirls, and lastly my card.
For the card I placed the ballerina in the centre and put four butterflies on one side and swirls of pearls the opposite side. I would love to know what you think!

Just Us Girls: Gift bag
2 Sisters: Anything Goes
Allsorts: Free and Easy
Ellephantastic Challenges: Celebration
