This week we join the crafty ladies from The Mirror Crack'd for their challenge & this time we've been asked for a wall hanging. Well I'm creating my own calendar for next year so what better for a wall hanging? I started by taking a piece of 8" x 8" craft canvas & giving it a colour wash with shades of blue,green & brown ink pads. When this was thoroughly dry (I left it over night but you can speed things up with a heat gun- gently!) I stamped our lovely robin using Versafine black. I coloured with Sakura pens & then stamped the background using images from "Deck the Halls"  around the edges with the 2 shades of Versafine green. I masked the robin to stamp the groups of trees from "Kim's Coppice" behind it & the apt sentiment for a calendar also comes from this set. The leaves in the bottom right corner have been die cut with the Dreamweaver die & foiled. As I intend to use this design for my January page I have added some touches of Fluffy Stuff & Stardust Stickles for a wintry, frosty look. To finish I have layered onto dark brown card.

Here's how the calendar looks

Why not pop over to The Mirror Crack'd to see what the design team have come up with.
