Noel, A Christmas Card for the MojoMonday#477 Challenge
Another day, another challenge card. I think I still need a few more cards too. Anyway, this was a neat sketch, but one of those I had to really think about. If you put two things together to make one card face, they really need to compliment each other.
I have been looking for an excuse to use this DSP, Fancy Frost. It is pre embossed paper all in white that you can use as is or color. It's a great use for the new soft brayers. However, mine were in transit so I just sponged on the color by hand.
My colors are Whisper White, Crumb Cake and Tempting Turquoise. I know, TT is a very strong color, but if you use a light hand it can look like this. Surprised me too. I did some googling for alt Christmas colors, and it seems like at least for this year, the Bone, turquoise and white combo is very in. I don't have bone, I have Very Vanilla, but that is not bone, I choose to go more to the brown with Crumb Cake. Brown and blues do very well together.
I cut one piece from my Fancy Frost design the size I needed it and then cut for the sketch. It is not down the middle, but slightly off set from the middle. Here is the sketch so you can see.
I hope this has given you just a bit of inspiration, that would make me very happy. Have a great week and thanks for stopping by.
