Happy Christmas - New Anything Goes Challenge at Artistic Inspirations

Good morning Crafty bloggers...hope you all had a lovely weekend. This morning I am sharing with you my DT card I created for this mornings new challenge over at Artistic Inspirations, using our sponsor Floppy Latte Designs digi Candy Cane that you can purchase here.

My Sample

Close Ups

I first printed out digi on to water colour card, then coloured in using Promarkers Red, Poppy, Crimson, Marsh Green, Pine, Leaf Green, Pear Green and Bright Green. I die cut the printed and coloured digi image using Spellbinders labels eight die and using the same but slightly larger die I also cut out red mirror card, that you can purchase from  Creata, to use as a base.  I used Creata green mirror card as my backing, then added a lovely green stripe pattern paper that I had in my stash on top. To embellish, I used Papermania flowers, brads, gems, and leaves all from my stash. I added red glitter flock, Ranger ruby red liquid pearl and diamond stickles glitter glue, then edged the image using Creative Expressions vintage golden green guilding wax and Indigo Blu bright yellow green shade pan pastel. To finish I added Happy Christmas peel offs for my sentiment.

Well hopefully this has given you some inspiration to help you get your creative juices flowing, so you can enter our fab challenge. Can't wait to see what you create!

Thanks so much for popping over and leaving such lovely comments
