Colour Create Challenge #31


Hi girls, thank you for taking time to visit my contribution to crafting blogland. I hope you find something to please the eye.
Well the good news is that my Copic Refills arrived - the bad news is that they were not in time for this card which is based on the colour combo of Blue, Silver and White with the added option of Winter & Glitter for Colour Create's latest challenge. I have modelled it on a design that didn't need any colouring I picked up on a course at Stampaholics in Perth about this time last year. I am really grateful for Siobhan's coaching when I first took up cardmaking - she was and still is a great inspiration. I have lost the name of the set that this stamp came from (way before my blogging days). The image is embossed with Detail White and mounted on card that had a turquoise and Pale Blue watercolour wash prior to doing the tree. The snowflakes are cut from Silver Mirra board and White card using a Nestie Snowflake die with an added flake punched with an Alpine punch from white glittercard. An extra glitter flake was added to the bottom of the card. The papers are Bazzil Bling in Turquoise and White cardstock put though my Sissix in Cuttlebug Swiss Dots and Snowflake Folders.
I hope you think this card works and I would love to hear your views if you have a minute to leave a comment. I love going through them and really find them helpful.
Have a good day.
Hugs,

  8. Very elegant and stylish - I love blue and white for Christmas. I have this Elusive Images set and didn't get it in time for last Christmas - so this year it's going to feature heavily I think.
