We love 2 Create Challenge!

Good morning folks, its time for a new challenge at We Love 2 Create and we've got a nice easy theme for you, Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes! As always our lucky winner will receive a fabby prize from those lovely peeps at Premium Craft Brands

I've made a Christmassy shadow box. I began by creating  a little scene on a stampbord collage using Sheena Douglass stamps. I coloured the scene with my PanPastels and added some sparkle with my Black and White Pearl Mediums. The next bit was the fun bit, what a nighmare trying to get the collage into the canvas lol. Fortunately because the stampbord pieces had a bit of give at the joins I managed to manoevre it into position (after a wee bit of swearing lol)

I painted the edges of the canvas grey and once the paint was dry set to with Maimeri Light Modelling paste my my favourite Dutch Doobadoo a5 Brick stencil. I added some colour with my PanPastels in Burnt Sienna and Raw Umber to create a brick colour.

Next I coloured up lots of sizzix die cuts and then applied Rock Candy Crackle paint over the Pans. As always I was in a bit of a rush so I used my heat gun and ended up with a bit of a bubble effect. I added some buttons to the centre of the poinsettia die cuts to finish off. 

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
ABC Christmas: L is for lyrics
(Santa Claus is coming to town)
Allsorts: use a stamp not a digi
Everybody Art: snowflake in summer
Jingle Belles: no patterned paper
Simply Papercraft: anything goes
That's Crafty: housey housey
Winter Wonderland: anything but a card

Thanks so much for visiting today, hope to see you again soon
