OSAAT Guest DT Mother's Day



A few weeks ago I was contacted by Marjo at One Stitch at a Time after entering a challenge and saying I would be interested in a Guest Designer spot. Today is the day that I go 'Live' with a challenge of Mother's Day.

Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps each month have a huge collaboration pack from different members of the store. For the month of April you will get a Mother's Day/Babies set and it has loads of images in it as you can see below. The best things id it is ABSOLUTELY FREE if you spend only $10 in the store. Fabulous value!!


There are 2 sponsors for this challenge, One Stop Card Crafts are offering a $10 voucher


And Digi's With Attitude are also offering a prize, more details are on the challenge post.


I was able to choose my own image and picked this gorgeous little duck in the bath. It is called Rub-a-Dub-Dub and is designed by Stitchy Bear. You can purchase it in the store here

The image has been coloured with Promarkers and I have added some stickles glitter and dewdrops to highlight some of the bubbles. I have also used artistic license and added bubbles spilling out of the bath. I added Crystal effects to the big red hearts, eye and beak of the little duckie.

The blue paper is from a big QVC Colorbok pack and I have added ink to the edges of this and the paper too. I wanted to do a relax theme to the card for Mother's day and used a sketch from Waltzing Mouse stamps for the banner idea. the lettering is rub ons and I have strung the flags onto a thin cord and 'pinned' it up using Craftwork Cards Candi.

The Mother sentiment is a Sizzlits die I bought in the sale last year. I think it cost me just 49p and I knew it would come in handy. I cut it in blue 1st and then layered a white one on top adding some little black dots and a gem on the butterfly. The rest of the sentiment was made up using the rub ons.

So that's my MIL's card done now, she will love the cute image. I hope you will hop on over to One Stitch at a Time and take a look at the DT's cards and maybe even enter the challenge yourself.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
