Hi stampers! Happy Sunday! Claire is our hostess at the Paper Players this week with a fabulous color challenge..bright and cheerful! Here you go:
At first glance, I panicked a little when I saw the colors---PURPLE!! But I put on my thinking cap and came up with this:
I used the CAS(E) this Sketch sketch:
and began my making my own "DSP" by stamping some snowflakes in all three colors on a piece of white cardstock. It looked a little plain, so I did some sponging around the edges for more definition, which looked much better! I created some sentiments using Concord & 9th dies, layering the "cheer" with three layers of Granny Apple Green cardstock, as well as backing the "holiday" with a wee little strip of Bermuda Bay foil:
I remembered that I had some Bermuda Bay glimmer paper from a couple of years back, so I used that to diecut a snowflake, and added a rhinestone colored with a purple Copic:
My trend lately has been to use non-traditional colors to make a Christmas card, and this one fits that bill as well, but I like it! I hope you'll play along with these colors as well...you don't have to make a Christmas card, you can use them for whatever you want! Check out what the DT did as well as the Paper Players blog!
And I just happened to notice this stained glass heart that's hanging in the window in Cassidy's room; it was made by my SIL, and it has the exact same colors as Claire's challenge! So pretty!
Thanks for stopping by today! Enjoy your day and be blessed!
