Anything Creative/Mixed Media goes at We Love 2 Create

Good morning my lovelies, we've got a new challenge over at We Love 2 Create and as always its really easy to play along as our theme is 'Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes'. Our generous sponsors Premium Art Bands have some lovely crafty goodies for our lucky winner so I hope you're going to play along. I've made a Christmas decoration for my DT project, apologies for the awful photo but the weather here as been terrible so I've had to use my Ottlite for the pic.

I began with an oval MDF blank which I covered with white card and coloured with Turquoise and Turquoise tint PanPastels, dusting with a little Coarse White medium for some sparkle. The stamps are all from Stamps by Chloe, stamped and embossed with assorted WOW embossing powders on card coloured with my Pans and also on acetate.

The flowers in the baubles are also made using Chloes' stamps, this time stamped on vellum that I'd coloured with Pans. Pans don't adhere too well to vellum which is a very smooth surface so I swiped the vellum with a versamark inkpad which makes the Pans stay put and also makes the colours a lot more intense.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Crafting Musketeers: use a sentiment
Crafting with Dragonflies: Anything Christmas
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas: time to decorate
Creatalicious: Merry Christmas
Creative Corner: sparkle and shine
Natalie and Amy's: Christmas
Really Reasonable Ribbon: Shimmer or sparkle with ribbon/trim

Thanks so much for visiting today
