Holiday Sparkle Wall Plaque!!

Hey Everyone!! I hope you all had an awesome weekend and a great start to your week!! I'm back with another Design Team project for the Jiggery Makery blog.
I created a one of a kind home decor piece using a circular wood plaque, some paint and lots of sparkle.
Here's the pic for you to check out:

For this project, I used a wood plaque, measuring 8x8", that I picked up at a yard sale.
I painted the entire surface with a coat of gesso and let it dry.
I then painted over the gesso with a coat of light blue acrylic paint.
Once the paint had dried, I sponged the edges with white pigment ink from Stampin Up.
I stamped some snowflakes on the background using the same pigment ink.
And added texture using gesso. 

I created a snowy background by cutting hills out of textured white card stock.
I layered the hills and adhered them down.
I used my Spectrum Noir IB1 marker to add some highlights.
And finished them off with some Stickles.
I cut some trees out of green card stock, added them to the background and used Eucalyptus Stickles to make them sparkle. 
With the backdrop complete, I set to work on the image.

For the image, I used the fabulous "Cindy" digi from the Jiggery Makery Etsy store.
I printed her on a sheet of white card stock and used a combo of Copics, Bics, Spectrum Noirs and ProMarkers to color her in.
Here's a rundown of the colors I used:
- Skin: Blush, Dusky Pink, Tan, R20
- Hair: Tan, Cinnamon, Burnt Sienna
- Sweater : Cinnamon, Burnt Sienna, RV14, RV19
- Pants: Blue Skies Blue, Deep Sea Blue 
- Boots: Tan, Cinnamon, Burnt Sienna 

Once I had the image colored in, I cut her out and adhered her to the background.

To finish the project off, I added some sequins and this cute little snowman.
The sentiment "Holiday Sparkle", was cut using my Cricut and the December 25th cartridge.

And voila!! plaque complete!!

I hope you enjoyed this project for today.
Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your evening and Peace!!
