Anything Goes at That's Crafty Challenges

Hi Everyone
Today see's the start of our last challenge of the year over at That's Crafty Challenge Blog
and as it's the last one of the year we've made it an
ANYTHING GOES challenge, so you can make whatever you want!

I've chosen to make a piece using the That's Crafty 10" x 8" grey/white board (rounded corners), That's Crafty do some fabulous surfaces to decorate and you will find them all  HERE.
The background has been created using Paperartsy Fresco finish paints.I have used Carabelle Studio stamps and stamped them using black Archival ink. For the building in the distance I have coloured my stamps with Lyra crayons and misted with water then stamped (Gelatos would work in a similar way) The sentiment is from Tim Holtz.

I have lightly coloured the building with the crayons and a waterbrush and edged with prismacolour pencils. Finally I have added highlight with a white gel pen.
We have created a variety of pieces as a design team and you can see them all HERE.
Also if you enter this challenge you could be the lucky winner of a £20 to spend in That's Crafty online store.
This Challenge will run for the next 3 weeks so you have a week longer than normal to join in with us.
