Welcome to Sensational Saturdays at Sugar Creek Hollow. This week we have a colour challenge for you over at the challenge blog and we want you to use these colours in a shabby chic card.
The colours don't have names but have been interpreted as Light Blue, Kraft, Chocolate and Light Pink. Make sure you check the work of the other design team members and then show us your interpretation of this colour challenge. One winner will be chosen to receive a free digi stamp from the Sugar Creek Hollow store.
I had already decided I wanted to use this image from Sugar Creek Hollow called Christ is Born so this is really a Christmas card in non-traditional colours but I am sure at least one of my friends will appreciate that I have gone out of the box.
I have cut the image using my Label 1 Nestabilities die and then I used the same die in the next two sizes to cut a mottled blue piece and a kraft piece. The kraft piece has been embossed and then sponged with Pearlescent Orchid ink and the same ink was applied to a paper flower that I picked up at a flower and craft wholesale supply house when I was in England on vacation. The branches have been cut using my Cricut and Make the Cut software. I have done a bit of distressing, added some crochet lace, a loopy bow and a button with a gem along with three more gems in the corner to finish it off.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
AI Factory - Die Cuts or Punches
Paper Play - Ribbons, Lace & Flowers
Sassy Studio Designs - Anything Goes
ABC Challenge - H is for Holidays
