Colour Crazy Challenge Blog - 27 October 2017 - Anything goes

 It is Friday and therefore time for another challenge over at the Colour Crazy Challenge Blog where I am a Guest Designer.

The topic is "anything goes".
The sponsor for this weeks' challenge is Star Stampz.
 For my decorated gift bag I have used the Star Stampz image called "Santa's letter".  I have coloured my image in with my Promarkers and highlighted areas with Stickles glitter glue.

The backing papers are from The Works.  The 12x12 paper pad was marked as £3 but when I went to the tills it came up as £1.50.  What a bargain?  She said maybe it was last years' paper pad.  Would anyone know it was last years' paper pad?  I shall certainly use these for lots and lots of Christmas cards.  The papers are double-sided so if you don't like one side you always have the option of using the other side.
I have finished the decorated bag off with die-cut poinsettia, Sue Wilson die-cut greenery cut in gold and a sentiment from a Creative Crafting World Christmas Papers CD.

Promarkers used:

Face/skin - Saffron, Oatmeal and Spice
Hair - Raw Sienna, Spice and Terracotta
Coat/boots/flag and greenery - Lush Green and Pine
Ear muffs/letterbox and bow - Red, Poppy Red and Crimson
Bird/pole - Sandstone and Khaki.

Lovely lay-out. Thank you for your entry and hope you'll join us again in our current Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. Just want to leave you with God's Word in 1 Corinthians 3:10-11 which says, "By the grace God has given me (Paul), I laid a foundation as a wise builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should build with care. 11 For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ." Enjoy the weekend.
