And now it's time for me to share the card I made for the currently running challenge over at Our Creative Corner. A huge thanks to Laura for giving us a challenge theme that is so close to my heart. We are to create a vintage Christmas piece using only neutral colors...in Laura's own words "use a neutral palette....so think about shades of creamy hot chocolate, glistening white snow, rich dark sherry and mince pies, ivory candles, rustic wooden logs, roasting chestnuts and brown paper packages tied up with string!
This Christmas we want you to make anything you like - Cards, ATC's, Tags, Scrapbooking, journals, Gifts, Altered art......anything you like....but please use only neutral colours from ice white, through to ivory and cream, beige to dark brown and black. You can also use metal embellishments, metal paints and stains.
Please Note - Your creation does NOT have to be 'Vintage style' - We would love to see Christmas creations in any style, but please keep to a neutral colour scheme."
That's it - I have to tell you I am head over heels in love this this card! The poinsettia came out gorgeous and I'm still drooling over the stenciled embossing paste - really love the way it absorbed the color of the distress ink!
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you will stop by Our Creative Corner too and see the wonderful vintage Christmas projects from the rest of the team.
