Afternoon folks. I hope I find you well in these difficult times.
Here in the UK we are in our second week of lockdown take two and crafting is keeping me sane and occupied. I must admit to retreating to the craft room with just my inks and pens for company, shutting the outside world out when I'm stressed, either that or read a good book. I would say gardening too, but at the moment its not really the weather for it, other than a bit of tidying in the herbaceous borders when the ground isn't too wet.
Anyway, as it says at the top of the post, its time for a new challenge at Color Hues. Here is my card based on the new colours.
As the challenge over at CAS Christmas is all about non traditional colours, I decided to make a Christmas card with an old Woodware bubble wreath stamp.
On a panel of white card, I stamped the outline wreath in brown and then filled in the openings with buttons, crystals and pearls from my stash, adding some brown areas with my Copics for contrast. To some I added Glossy Accents, some I left flat, again for contrast. I was quite pleased with the end result, not much of the original stamp is visible!
To complete I added a sentiment banner and a ribbon bow and hanger. The trimmed down panel was then added to a base card edged with the same dark Copic marker, it beats finding some matching card!
Please check out the rest of the DT for some fab inspiration, then why not join us?
