Angelic Advent Calendar - FFFC #225 'Anything Goes'

Hello.

We've got another new challenge today at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge blog.  For the next fortnight, the theme is 'Anything Goes.'  So it's easy peasy...everybody's favorite!  Check out the details at the challenge blog and also what my teammates have created to inspire you to play along with us.

As for me, this is what I've created...an Advent Calendar.


There are 25 stars there, each numbered from 1 to 25 for the days in December leading to Christmas.


and each star can be flipped over to the back of the card.  


I'm using sort of a side-step card as the base for the advent calendar.


I don't have a large-star die (sigh), so the big stars were all cut out by hand...ugh.
I did that with the clouds as well.  For the templates, I searched the internet for cliparts of cloud images and enlarge them.

A closer look at the rubber-stamped images being featured.


This cute little angel is called 'Dancing with Stars Tilda.'


And this one is called 'Little Tilda.'
Both these images are from the 'A Little Christmas Collection 2012' from Magnolia Stamps.  I've done the colouring with alcohol-ink markers and coloured pencils.

Okay, that's it for me for now.  Much appreciate you dropping by.  Enjoy your day and have a wonderful weekend!


Materials and Tools Used:
Designer Papers:  Recollections Starry Night paper pad  
Dies:  Number dies bought from Amazon 
Punches:  EK Success Star; Marvy Uchida Star
Miscellaneous:  Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Ink stamp pad Walnut Stain
Colouring medium:  Alcohol ink markers from Letraset - Promarkers and Pantone Trias; coloured pencils to help with the shading
