Color Hues #31

 Good afternoon, as it's the 1st of the month there's a brand new colour combo from Color Hues which is the last one of the year. 

As it's December and we know you are all going to be busy, so we are leaving the link open until Dec 29th. We have a lovely festive colour duo for you too but you don't need to go down that route, here's my take using the retired Uniko Pure Florals Poinsettia, I must try to persuade Bev to reissue this beauty!! 

I apologise for the picture quality but the light was playing up when I needed to take the photo!
This large image is a dream to colour. For this card, I embossed in gold EP then washed in colour using my Zig watercolour brushes. To get the depth of colour, I used 3 shades of both colours and a brown-grey for the shadows on the leaves. The center of the 'flower', the actual flowers of the poinsettia, were coloured with a gold glitter pen as I wasn't allowed to use yellow, it's not one of our colours or neutrals!!!
The bold greeting is also from Uniko and is embossed using gold EP. My panel was trimmed when the image was complete and added to an A6 side fold note card.
So where will you go with this latest combination? We'd love to see what you make of our colours in the gallery. For more red and green inspiration, check out our GD and the rest of the team here.

Why not link your celebratory red and green creations to the Uniko challenge  as well.
