Non-Traditional Colours - Winter Wonderland Challenge for 20th of May 2016 - better late than never!


I'm a little late this week as I have been travelling quite a bit for work the last few weeks, plus a little boy's seventh birthday and party, so I have not been able to concentrate on colouring and making cards.

But the challenge this week at Winter Wonderland chosen by Christine is
"Non-Traditional Christmas Colours".

This means that you must create a card that is not red and green.

To be in with a chance of winning a prize, please remember that it is Christmas projects only.

We are sponsored by the fabulous Crafts and Me this week.


Here are my two gift cards, using the trees from Bottlebrush Holiday from Power Poppy:

I stamped the image on to water colour paper and coloured with the following Distress Markers:
  • picked raspberry
  • worn lipstick
  • spun sugar
  • dusty concord
  • seedless preserves
  • shaded lilac
  • chipped sapphire
  • blueprint sketch
  • tumbled glass
  • faded jeans
  • salty ocean
  • peacock feathers
  • spiced marmalade

The image has been die-cut using a decorative die called nesting frames by Kaisercraft. I have stamped the sentiment "be merry" from the same Bottlebrush Holiday by Power Poppy in Memento Bahama Blue ink on to a smaller die-cut. Both the image and sentiment are adhered to a Kraft card from Envelope Solutions.

There is inspiration from the Snowflakes DT on the Winter Wonderland blog, so please pop over to everyone's blog by clicking on their name. We always appreciate a comment or two! :) Also you can find out what other challenges are out there, which could give you ideas.

Thanks for looking!
