Festive Sparkle at Crafty Individuals

The theme for Crafty Individuals' challenge this month is Festive Sparkle. All you have to do is make something using one of their many products following this theme and upload it to their blog - as well as the chance of winning a prize, all entrants can claim a 25% discount on their purchases at Crafty Individuals whilst the challenge is running. I think that is so generous!

I decorated a canvas board, covering it first with Tim Holtz Christmas tissue tape, then with gesso and distress inks. I stamped a selection of Christmas stamps from Crafty Individuals using the same colours of distress ink and then image transferred some images from one of the People and Places images books so that the stamping and colours showed through. I die cut some snowflakes from shrink plastic and also some from roasting tin foil, which I put through a snowflake embossing folder, and finished off with some sequins and gem stones for some extra sparkle.

I do hope you will join in with the challenge.
