Imagination Crafts December "Anything Goes"

Good morning all.

We had a dry bright day yesterday so hubby and I went out and did a little shopping, managed to cross another couple off the Christmas present list so it wasn't a wasted trip. Supposed to be going to Edinburgh today where we'll hopefully cross the rest off.

I'm delighted to be here sharing my first inspiration project for the Imagination Crafts challenge.
Our theme is always anything goes and the winner (using a product from Imagination Crafts) will receive a £40 voucher to spend in the Imagination Crafts Shop.

I've used one of the Decoupage Stamps - Candle

I stamped in versmark and then heat embossed with detail gold EP. I then washed the background with the gold aquatint before colouring the main image with promarkers, die cutting and layering on gold mirri card. The sentiment and smaller images are all part of the set and are also stamped in versamark and heat embossed with gold detail EP.

Layers are attached with foam tape to give the card some dimension.

Challenges entered:
CHNC Extra - anything Christmas goes
Completely Christmas - something beginning with "S" (stamp, sentiment)
Crafty Catz - anything goes
Southern Girls - celebrations
We Doo Doobadoo - get festive
Paper Creators Crafts - all about Christmas
Addicted to Stamps - lots of layers
Christmas Card Challenges - anything goes
