A quick post from me as I want to show you a Christmas card I made out of a muted/mellow palette. This Challenge over at 'the ribbon reel' grabbed my attention as it is such a unique and pretty theme.
Lenet is the hostess and she has provided a photo for inspiration to help the creative juices flow.
I was inspired, as the colours are soft and wistful, but whether I have captured this in my card is debatable, it was a great opportunity for me to stretch my thought processes towards the untraditional for a change.
'Pastel Christmas'- CREAM, BABY BLUE & PINK and some BLING!
The Bg has been inked with Antique Linen, and Picket Fence Distress stains.
I glued some stars on and some mesh, then run it through an embossing folder.
To add a little more interest and dimension, I ripped up a piece of scrap that was lying on the craft desk, and attach the Christmas word.
The Bling flower adds the sparkle to fulfil the Challenge requirements.
This card was fun to make, and as you can all observe I stopped quite quickly, when normally I would tend to add many more elements!!!
