Penny's challenge 297: anything goes


This is my card for Penny's challenge 297 - please click on the link to see the lovely designs by the rest of the team and we hope to see your entries for the challenge.

I used the lovely A random fan snowman & company image, kindly supplied by them as one of the sponsors of the challenge. I coloured the image with spectrum noir alcohol pens and sprinkled on some Art Institute white sparkle glitter, having used a quickie glue pen in places. The image was cut and embossed with a cross hatch todo die - I then went round the edges of the embossing with the quickie glue pen and poured on some more glitter.

I used some lovely white pearlescent paper embossed with snowflakes for the background, using an A5 tent style card blank. I matted this on to a holographic red card cut with a larger die. Chipboard pieces were from Hobbycraft and flowers with pearls from Poundland.
