MY Besties UK - Challenge - Anything Goes & Christmas

Good morning and welcome back to my blog ... how the weeks are flying by ....

Today over at Besties UK we have a new challenge 

Anything Goes (A) & Christmas(B)

You can enter the challenge here 'My Besties UK' we have some fab digis as prizes the rules are up to 3 entries with a Bestie Image and one without so you can enter up to 4 times ....

You can enter an ANYTHING GOES project or a Christmas project ...

This is any project that includes something Christmassy .... its getting to that time of year where we are all getting ready for the big event .... thinking about what to buy for who ... where shall we go for dinner ... the list is endless ....

This is my design team card for the challenge, I loved this new christmas image she is so pretty and I wanted to practice using red and beige colours.. she can be purchased at the store here 



1 /2 sheet coredinations red card
1 sheet bazzil kraft card
1/2 sheet pretty paper (I used magnolia christmas )
Printed image - Snow Girl from the Besties White Christmas collection
tea dye distress ink

magnolia cute corner die
magnolia tags die
la la land banner die

To make this card I used a square card as a base and layered card and paper .5 cm smaller each time to  make the correct layers of card then paper.
I layered a strip of layered paper across the centre of the card and affixed a ribbon over that.  I used tea dye distress ink to tint the craft card and the edges of my image.  I coloured a gold peel off greeting with my copic pen e29  and the pearls with the same pen to get a nice vintage sort of effect 

Printed out the image on Xpress blending card and coloured with my copics then layered onto red and kraft card and affixed to the card.

I used the following copics to colour my image
Skin - e000, 00, 11, 21, 04, rv10  r21
Jacket/Skirt/Boots r24, 27,29
Hat/Fur/Blouse e50, 51, 53, 55
Hair - e25, 27, 29
Eyes - e15, 17

I hope I have inspired you to take part in our challenge .... thanks for stopping by today to visit
