Creative Artiste Mixed Media Challenge #8

It's the first Friday of November and the start of a new challenge at Creative Artiste We are a challenge blog for everyone who likes to mix their media. As long as you use more than one media on your project we'd love to see you enter the challenge. This is a month long challenge so you have time to create projects and enter up to three times. A full list of the rules is on the challenge blog. Thank you to everyone who entered Challenge #7 for October. The winner has been announced  on the blog.
Our theme this month is
"Anything Goes"
with an option of
"Traditional Christmas Colours"
(Red, Green and Gold)
We are sponsored this month by Lacy Sunshine
who are offering three digis to the winner.
The design team were given a choice of images to work with for this challenge and I made this hanging Christmas decoration with my choice.

I used the Sheena Douglass Holly Stamp from her Paint Fusion range on two different green cards and cut sections and individual leaves out. I die-cut a ring in gold card using scalloped dies and used that as a base for the wreath. The banner was printed on the computer.

The digi image I used is called Joy to the World and I coloured her in with Copics and then cut her out.

I added clear embossing powder and gold frantage to some of the holly leaves.

I finished the wreath with a gold bow and some red gems as berries. I attached thick twine to the back of the wreath to hang it with.
Now please visit the Creative Artiste Challenge Blog to see the wonderful projects created by my talented team mates for more inspiration.  Remember to have fun and enter your "Anything Goes-Traditional Christmas Colours" creations in the challenge.
