January Guest Designer for Ching Chou Kuik

I was asked to be a guest designer for the Ching Chou Kuik Blog for the month of January. The challenge for this month is "Use something New"
I was allowed to select an image to use and I chose this lovely one called "flowery" which you can purchase on chin-chou Kuiks etsy store via this >>link
I have coloured the image with polychromos pencils. It is darker in real life (it was difficult getting a good picture on the day). I fussy cut her out and adhered her to a kaisercraft doily die cut frame which has been layered amongst some kaisercraft die cut leaves.

The 'use something new' was this ultrafine glitter, by Barbara Trombley, I have had for a while and not yet used it. As you can see it comes in many colours, 375 colours all up, of which I have four at the moment. The colour I used on this card is called jonquil.  I put a small bit of acid free glue to the edge of the doily die cut which frames the image, to adhere the glitter. 
You can check out a quick video about Barbara here >>link

So I bet you have something new that you are itching to use so why not use it and show us in this challenge over at Ching Chou kuiks challenge blog. The challenge runs all January so you have plenty of time to enter,
