Christmas Colour

Some great blogs out with sketches and challenges this week, so I took part in a couple even though I just missed taking part in one. This was Freshly Made Sketches where they are celebrating there 100th Sketch. The colour combination came from Colour Q it was very hard not to add some other Christmas Colours. 

So here is the card that I came up with using these challenges:

I got the Ornament Keepsakes out seeing as they have carried over from last year's autumn/winter catalogue. I then used my markers to ink up the stamp with island indigo, pacific point & early espresso. I inked the small bauble with the pacific point marker too (as don't have the ink pad always on my list, but other things seem to be more important), I then quickly searched for my lucky limeade ink pad and stamped the other bauble. Of course ran them through the big shot with the matching framelits.

I had to then find some dsp to go with the colour combination and laid my hands on these from last year's autumn/winter catalogue (I believe). I mounted the lucky limeade dsp onto island indigo and then stuck that down on the card base as well as the early espresso dsp. I then positioned the baubles on the early espresso dsp and then stuck the top one down and then using dimensional's I position raised the small bauble and then the lucky limeade bauble I layered it up using 2 dimensional's so it would go over the small bauble nicely.

I then found my lucky limeade ruffled ribbon and position that at the bottom and then got my sentiment from teeny tiny sentiments, the 'merry Christmas' fitted nicely into the mosaic punch - but on whisper white cardstock was a bit bare, so I got a sponge dauber and covered it in lucky limeade and punched a scalloped oval out and layered on the card. I then couldn't resist adding some dazzling details as it just need some bling as well as the candy dots.

Thank's for stopping by, enjoy crafting.
