Today I have two cards, each one in answer to color challenges. The first card is for the Copic Creation Challenge to use golds. This was a challenge as in my stash of Copics I have only one that actually says "gold" on it, that is Y28. But I added Y21, Y11, and YG95 to color this adorable image of "Wee and Christmastree", the charming creation of Norma Fickel who is the newest illustrator for Whiff of Joy.
For the card I used gold metallic card stock, gorgeous winter tree ribbon from my stash, and gold cord wrapped around a piece of metallic holly dp. The sentiment is heat embossed on the gold metallic cs. The ornaments on the tree are small gold rhinestones. Lots of gold and lots of texture! It turned out pretty good, I think!
The second challenge is the Colour Create Challenge to work with blue, white and silver. This was much easier for me since I love to work with these colors at Christmastime. I had already colored the wonderful Santa with Gifts from Whiff of Joy and it needed just the right sketch. The sketch is my own which was created as I worked. (You should see the pile of materials after I finally decide what to use!)
The papers are mostly from my stash, and primarily scraps. The ribbon again from my stash. The snowflake flowers are glittery stick-on foam snow flakes attached to Prima flowers with glittery white brads for the centers. I love the swirl of rhinestones. It's like blowing snow. The charm didn't photograph well, but it says "Believe". I believe! How about you?
