Hot stuff at Crafty Ann's

Hi there, well its time for a new challenge at Crafty Ann's, our first of the new year and Ann wants to see us thinking HOT so we can be inspired by hot colours or summery scenes etc. As always there is a fab prize from Crafty Ann's Digi Shop so I hope you're going to escape the horrible winter weather with us. For my DT card i've used one of Ann's gorgeous Venetian masks and a gorgeous bright paper from the Funky collection.

I've distressed the paper and added some gold embossing before matting it on some gold textured card. The main image is coloured with promarkers and glittered using gold glitter and a quickie glue pen. I've matted the image over scraps of mirri card that i embossed in my trusty cuttlebug before colouring with alcohol inks (raisin and cranberry). I've added a metal filigree corner to finish off and stamped and gold embossed the sentiment 'Celebrate'.

Sorry for the decidedly dodgy photo, its been so dark and grey here over the last couple of weeks. its dark when i go to work and dark when i come home, i'm starting to feel like an owl lol.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Aud Sentiments: any sentiment plus use your scraps
Crafty Emma's Challenge: Party party party
Kaboodle doodles: celebrate
Truly Madly Crafty: anything goes
Tuesday Throwdown: Shiny New Year

Thanks for calling by today
