Be Yourself - )Floppy Latte - OSAAT

(aka Challenge 124)

Hi there all you lovely people!  It is Sunday, which means that beginning of another challenge at One Stitch at a Time Challenges.  Our theme is 'Use a Digi' - so other than that, the doors are wide open for your own creativitiy to run free!

This week's sponsor is

 and that image I got to work with is Funky Floral VI by Floppy Latte Designs.  I thought I would have a play with the image in Craft Artist Professional to see what I could come up with....and this is it!

 I used the image once as line art and converted it from black to white, enlarged it, and added it to the background.  Then I printed the image as black line art (as it would be out of the tin so to speak). The image made me think of peacock feathers a bit, so I went with the purple and teal color scheme with pink accents - using Flex Markers for the coloring of course.  The only non digital element is the flower next to the sentiment and the coloring of the smaller image.  I think the overall effect turned out very nice - I hope you agree.

I am going to keep this short and sweet, as I forgot to schedule my blog post ahead of time and am now running late!

Do be sure to visit the main blog, and if the mood strikes you, show the other design team members some love!  Their creations are beautiful!  Also, link up your own digi image projects for a chance to win a set of digi stamps(if you use a Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps image in your project) or to win $3 to spend in the Stitchy Bear shop if you use a non SBDS image.

I would like to enter this creation in the following challenges:
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #196 - Bright and Cheerful
Crafts and Me Challenges - Anything Goes
Operation Write Home Midweek Throwdown - Encouraging Challenge
ATCs and Cards with Attitude - Anything Goes
Simply Create Too - Use it Two Times (at least)

Right, the longer I ramble, the later this post gets, so I will shush and post this now.

Take care and I hope to see you back soon!

xx Denise

Yes the image does remind me of a peacock's feather also. The colors are beautiful together and I love how you have layered the white and black print of the image. Very effective! xx
