The Paper Shelter December “Anything Goes” Challenge



Hi everyone, today I’m sharing with you this weeks challenge project for The Paper Shelter Design Team and this weeks theme is “Anything Goes”. You can find all the details for the current challenge here!



Step 1:

I started my project by printing this digital image by The Paper Shelter called “Gingerbread House” onto alcohol marker friendly paper.


Now I can colour the image and today I’m using my Spectrum Noir TriBlend alcohol markers. I used: Brown Grey Shades, Gold Brown Blend, Gold Brown Shades, Tan Blend, Tan Shades, Light Green Blend, Alpine Green Blend, Pale Pink Blend and Dark Red Blend.

After the colouring is done I added back in some highlights using a white gel pen and I fussy cut the image leaving a small border.



Step 2:

I die cut a rectangle panel , from white card stock, two sizes smaller than my card base and stamped my (Dutch) sentiment on the panel using black ink. Next I placed my stencil of choice (Crafter’s Companion “Splendid Snowflakes”) onto the panel and applied some Imagination Crafts Sparkle Medium in “Sage Green” over the stencil using a palette knife and let it dry.



Step 3:

INext I die cut a slightly larger rectangle panel from matching red card stock and adhered both rectangle panels together using liquid glue. This combination I adhered onto a white linen textured card base using one millimetre thick foam tape.


Because I felt the coloured image didn’t stood out enough from the background I die cut a circle shape from vellum and first adhered that onto the background and than adhered the coloured and fussy cut image on top also using one millimetre thick foam tape.

So now it's your turn! Come and play with us over at The Paper Shelter, and you could win an amazing $30 gift voucher if you use an image from The Paper Shelter. And if you enter with a different brand image, you can still win three TPS digis of your choice (which you can then use to enter the next challenge, and so be eligible for the $30 voucher!).


And that is it for today’s project! I wish you a creative day!
