OSAAT Challenge #2

It's here!! (and I'm late) The New Challenge and NEW LOOK One Stitch At A Time Challenge number two!!!
I know you didn't guess what my sneaky peek was, because this time round over on
One Stitch At A Time
it's a

by one of our DT Susan

I must admit when I first saw the sketch I thought.. oh...whirly bits! ... ummm....circles, and a few more oh-ums... but then Great news came. Our fabby new Challenge this week is being sponsored by the lovely Karen from
Karen's Doodles!!

You can win three of her fabulous Digi Images and if you use one of Karen's doodles, you'll be entered into the new weekly Challenge Twice!
Did I say weekly??? Yes! From now on OSAAT is going weekly!! T
his challenge will end MIDNIGHT 6th March and the next challenge will start MIDDAY 7th March!
This cute little tiger flying with his balloons is just one of Karen's creations!! Us lucky DT members had a chance to chose one of Karen's drawings from her on-line shop.
It was a very hard choice..I had three favourites and ended up changing my mind but then as soon as I spotted this...
I knew just what I was going to do with him!! A picture formed in my mind ((ohoo scarrry!!) and suddenly the sketch was easy!!! I made Baby Mason his first Birthday Card (First time early for me as his birthday's not until September!!)

Clink on Karen's blinky below to take you over to her lovely on-line shop, you too won't be able to make up your mind!Back to the card...I printed the little tiger out twice and coloured him in using my Promaker pens and then cut round him using a scalloped Nestabilities circle, which cut off his tail and popped his balloons but that way, I still keep the strings to his balloons when I cut out the second tiger...
(with me so far??)
The second tiger was lightly rubbed on the back...that's the back of the card...although, I think he quite liked it!! to make him curve slightly. I then fixed him over the first tiger image with a blob of silicone glue, giving it a 3D effect. Then I added the balloons in the same way.
I also edged the cut sides with a little extra black. (that hides any mistakes too!)
I've used Pink Petticoat papers. The small brick stamp was from Trago Mills, so I guess that's from Do-crafts. (It was only about 50p, down from 1.49 wish there was one near me!!)
The circled writing was done on my computer. Now...I can hear you...( I can't smell, I mean spell but I can hear.) If you don't have a Karen doodle, you can use any image you have, don't forget, it's now a weekly challenge and you can use the sketch in any way you like. Scrap pages, fat pages, ATC's, cards, altered art, anything crafty!!
A Karen Freebie??? Well, shh! don't tell everyone...yes... you can pop over to her shop (click the blinky above and go hunt!) or go over to SRN Universe (or Paper Craft Planet) become a member, then join 'Karen's Doodle's' group and watch out for the followers Freebie!!
So...what are you wanting for!! Pop over to
