Blog Hop at Mo's Digital Pencil and Colour Create rolled into One!

Hello there - I'm hanging on in there, checking my lists and ticking things off! Have a stinking cold though which is a bit pants - at least it should be over for Christmas!!

On to today's post and my make  is for this month's blog hop with Mo's Dream Team with a great theme  of Non- Traditional Colours chosen by our wonderfully talented Kerttu!!   Hopefully you should have arrived here from  Jane's blog but if you want to go back to the start, just pop back to Kerrtu's blog. The next stop on the hop is then  over to Debby 4000's blog.

My make also ties in with the new challenge at Colour Create which  is Blue, Silver and White with the optional extra of embossing.
And here's your inspirational picture:

15 December - Challenge 86 - Sharon L SILVER BLUE & WHITE
How pretty is that!
I went to the Craft Barn a few weeks ago and one of the projects I saw, was a make using these gorgeous alterable crowns. They were made by Chris Dark - check out her fabulous blog here if you don't know it - one of the Craft Barn designers, and as always, she was and is so inspirational that I decided to give them a go. 
This is the first time that I've tried crackle glazing and  have to say how thrilled I am with the result. The pearl edging was made with a Silver Viva Decor pen  and the Santa sledge and reindeer, were also purchased at the Craft Barn.

And then on the inside is this little Christmas Scene using Mo's gorgeous Winifred which you can find here at Mo's Digital Pencil.  I scaled down the size of the image ( the beauty of digi stamps) and coloured her with my PMs and Flex Markers.

We have a wonderful sponsor with us for this challenge at Colour Create, Michelle's Scrapbooking who are offering a special Christmas prize of a $30 dollar voucher to spend with them, wow!! 
 
Don't forget too that if you're joining in the Blog Hop at Mo's Dream Team, there are two $5 vouchers  to spend at Mo's Digital Pencil, hidden somewhere amongst the DT blogs for people who are kind enough to leave a coment!
