OSAAT Sports/Olympic Colours

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) Here I am with a DT card for One Stitch at a Time and our theme this time is 'Sports/Olympic colours'.
I chose a digi by Stitchy available at the store and cut round her with a little border. I then used Forever Friends Best of British Papers to make my simple card base-the patterns in the paper are so detailed I wanted to show them off. All I added for embellishments were three card candy in Red, White and Blue to compliment the papers. Lastly I added a dome greeting 'Have a fabulous day' in the left hand corner.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Frosted Designs: Use only patterned paper
The Secret Crafter: Olympic/Sporty
Gaylous Inimitability: Music or Dance
Raise the Bar Challenge: Red, White and Blue
Wags 'n Whiskers: Red, White and Blue
SJ Crafts: Olympics
I Brake For Challenges: Red, White and Blue

Thank you for looking and for your lovely comments :-)

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!
