Imagination Crafts December Challenge

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well and enjoying your weekend.  I spent a busy afternoon yesterday in my crafty room churning out some more christmas cards and today we are putting up the christmas tree.  The big day will be here before we know it lol.

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Imagination Crafts Challenges.  Our theme for this month is 
Merry Christmas

You are free to enter with any project you like and you do not have to use Imagination Crafts products.  However, if you do use Imagination Crafts products you will be entered into a random draw to win a £40 gift voucher for Imagination Crafts.  

Here is my inspiration project.

Imagination Crafts products used:
MDF frame and charm set
Sparkle Medium
Christmas Trio stencil
Acrylic paint
these products are all available here

I painted the MDF frame with acrylic paint and left to dry.  Once dry I used the christmas trio stencil and sparkle medium.  After it was dry I went over lightly with red pan pastel.  I added an MDF christmas tree and star charm that had been coated with sparkle medium.  Some little peel off stars and a bit of ribbon for a hanger finished my plaque.  

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries.  Just pop over to Imagination Crafts Challenges to enter.  Don't forget to check out the gorgeous work of my teamies.
