Warm Winter Wishes


For this week Blogger's Challenge group we had a "color combo" challenge. We had to use:

Brocade Blue, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive & Pumpkin Pie on our card/project. What an interesting & fun combination. I also decided to combine this challenge with another one from another group I'm on using the Cuttlebug.


My card base is Chocolate Chip layered with Old Olive. Then I ran a layer of Brocade Blue through the Cuttlebug using the Snowflake Embossing Folder & highlighted it with Craft White Ink.

For my main image I used: Snowy Snowman by Penny Black & colored the image directly on the rubber with Watercolor Wonder crayons. I spritzed a piece of Whisper White card stock lightly with water along with my colored stamped and stamped the imaged down. Then highlighted some of the snowflakes with Dazzling Diamonds glitter. I layered this to a piece of Pumpkin Pie.

I used a Cuttlebug Die to cut out my tag and stamped the sentiment (Polar Pals - retired) with Chocolate Chip ink & distressed with Old Olive. Then I used a piece of Pumpkin Pie grosgrain ribbon to tie it onto my card. I covered 2 white snowflake brads with glue & dipped them in Nirvana glitter (Art Institute) and added them to the side of my card.

It's a really different color scheme for a winter card but I love the cheery look it seems to have.

Be sure to check out the other Blogger's Challenge group members blogs to see how they interpreted this color challenge. Have a great week.
