Wandering Star

It's Digi Chooseday and this week we have gone all Christmassy, using a colour palette of blue and white, these are my favourite Christmas colours, I am not really one for the traditional red and green.

Of course the challenge this week is ANYTHING GOES and there is a great discount code over on the Challenge Blog, which you can use to buy one of the fab Polka Doodles Chrismas images, there are so many lovelies to choose from.

This is how my project started, with a £1.00 wall hanging from the local B & M Stores.

Using papers and the 'Wandering Star' Image from Octavia Frosted Winter I turned it into this lovely Christmas Decoration.

I started by printing the paper out and glueing it to the sign, once dry I trimmed the edges and added some ultra fine crystal glitter.

I fussy cut the image on my cameo and coloured her with Copics and a silver metallic gel pen.

I then picked a nice christmas sentiment and cut in blue vinyl.

Finally adding a few snowflake gems and a large snowflake or the corner.

We would love to see your creations over on the challenge blog, where my teamies have been so busy and creative with their makes.

As always you can find all things Polka Doodles with the following links, you should definitely take a look at the new range of dies Nikky has designed they are beautiful and cut so nicely.
