2013 Calendar

This is a two-sided calendar I have made for 2013 using Bearly Mine Designs Festive Fun and Bearly Mine Designs Mini Dots papers.
Both images are by Teri at Delicious Doodles.  The first image is called "Thorne" and the second image is called "Steampunk Sally".  I coloured both images in with my Promarkers.  The backing papers were all layered up and I put on some Imagination Crafts Diamond Sparkle Medium with my fingers (yuk!!) to add some texture, sparkle and shine.  The chipboard brackets and other bits and pieces I've had for 1-2 years so I thought it was about time to use them up so I coloured with a Promarker to match the colour scheme.  The small pieces I stamped with a Papermania Urban ticket stamp and also added this to the background for the steampunk image.
The first side of the calendar, Thorne, has been finished lots of gems, homemade felt flowers with brad centres, calendar tab, various Marianne Designs die-cuts, Cheery Lynn Designs die-cut border, ribbon and lots and lots of gems.
The second side of the calendar, Steampunk Sally, has been finished off with various chipboard embellishments, Spellbinders die-cut masked with a metal effect mask, calendar tab and metal screw-head brads.

I am entering this calendar into the following challenges:

Stamps + Fun = Creativity - No Christmas card
Whoopsi Daisy - Use up your stash - the chipboard shapes I have had maybe for 1-2 years and thought it was about time to put them to good use
