The Winter Wonderland Design Team - Reach For The Stars

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today sees Marianne's team posting for Winter Wonderland, but I would be lost if I was not mentioning the challenge today in some way, over the past year it has become my Friday morning ritual.  So not entering the challenge myself, just promoting the challenge as usual

The challenge this week is hosted by Lynsey and the theme is

Reach For the Stars
(let's see some stars on your cards

and the sponsor is Craftbrulee

Now I don't know if you remember a few posts back the image of the little drumming teddy bear, well this is the other image from the Kanban set available from Grimsby Crafts.  This is the image that will be used in one of the classes currently being advertised at Grimsby Crafts

So here he is
The base layer is silver mirror card and the top papers are from an old stash of Dovecraft papers.  The MS punch has been used to enhance the chequered strip and the sentiment is one of several in the pack.  The images are a clear polymer and fabulous to use.
The image itself is coloured in copics with a white gel to highlight.  The edges have been distressed with Tim Holtz antique linen and over stamped with the smaller images in the pack a duo of notes and a sweet star that matches these papers really well. I used a clear glitter sakuro pen for his microphone. 
A perfect set of images for a boys card. The pearls are from the Hobby House, however the new stock is arriving daily at Grimsby Crafts so cannot wait to visit for my next instalment of retail therapy.

I am entering this card into the following 

Fab n Funky - Chocolate and blue
Bearly Mine - For Men or Boys
copic creations - Use cool colours - blues and greens I went with
Crazy Challenge - Birthday
Aly's Sunday Challenge - For the Guys
The Crafty Pad - Something for the boys
Let's Ink it Up - Anything Goes
Stampin Sisters in Christ - Blue and Green

Once again I would like to thank  all my lovely visitor and those that take the time to leave such wonderful comments

Hugs Kate
