Anything Goes...That Craft Place Challenge take a peek...

Hello Again,

Well, it's almost the big Festive Day but before we get covered in wrapping paper and boxes I would love to share my DT inspiration for That Craft Place Challenge Blog
The theme is Anything Goes so let your creativity run wild and come and join us!

Here's my make...

Happy Christmas to one and all :D xxx

Here's what I used:
Image: Sugar Plum from That Craft Place
Sentiment: Christmas Style Scrabble Tiles from That Craft Place
Backing: still on a mission to use up some of my stash, the paper is a DoCrafts collection from many moons ago, but for new designs check out That Craft Place shop
Embellies: White Gesso, cosmic shimmer embossing powder (mint), flowers, beads, Crown from Dutch Doobadoo, lace and a bulldog clip!  That Craft Place has a full range of fabulous embellies and mixed media supplies

Here's How:
I matted the backing paper onto a double layer of blue then green card to add colour to the design, and then did the same for the next layer, offset to add height.
The image is coloured with Graph'it Marker pens on 300gsm super smooth card (From That Craft Place) and then again double layered and offset.  I sprinkled cosmic shimmer mint embossing powder around the image and heated from underneath to add the fairy dust effect (you'll have to trust me that the shine is amazing in real life!).
I then arranged the embellishments randomly to the edge of the piece.  I like the jumbled look!  And then I used a glue spreader to add white gesso randomly all over the place - my version of snow!
Add an insert of matching paper and voila!

Here's the close ups:
