Prize: 3 Digital Images
What do I like about Anything Goes? I can make any project! Right now, I'm making more Christmas cards, so this was perfect for me! Here is my project for this week:
My image for this week is Hipster Winter Girl from SLS Lines. I used paper I had in my stash. And of course, my Prismacolors to color my image. The first thing I always do is to color my image. Then I can pick my papers. It's very rare that I pick my papers first.

Once I had colored her, I set to adding the "bling" to her...gotta have that bling! So out came my texture past I bought from Reneabouquets. I spread some of that around her feet so it would give it more of a "snowy" effect. Then I sprinkled fine glitter on it. I then got my Glossy Accents out and spread it over the snowflakes, sprinkling all those with the same glitter.  I added the Glossy Accents to her eyeglasses so they'd look more like glass, and some on her buttons and boots. Here's a little tip: Be sure to spread the accents onto the areas where you want your glitter (or whatever you want) BEFORE adding the accents onto areas you DON'T want glitter. Otherwise, you might end up with glittery eyeglass lens! And I certainly didn't want that! (You learn from your mistakes, right? *wink*)

I took a piece of red and white striped Christmas paper and cut it to the same size of my image piece. I angled that underneath her (once everything was dry). I then mounted that onto a black piece of cardstock, and then onto the black and silver glittered cardstock. I didn't want any white showing, so I mounted all that onto a piece of white, making sure that the front was the same size as my final mounting. 

It's a CAS (Clean and Simple) card, but with all the glitter, I didn't want it to look "bulky". I hope you enjoyed this project and that you will join us in on the challenge! I LOVE looking at all the wonderful creations....plus, I get ideas from you, too!
