ColourQ Challenge - 114

This week ColourQ Challenge was to use this palette to create anything...but a card.  So I took the opportunity to use my new PTI Shape Up Snowman dies to create an ornament for our Christmas Tree.  What a wonderful colour palette.  I translated this weeks colours into PTI's Terra Cotta, Spring Moss, Aqua Mist, Ocean Tides and Kraft.  I also used a technique introduced my Erin Lincoln to create my own chipboard.  The snowman body was die cut 6 times from an Apple Jacks cereal box and then 2 additional pieces of white ardstock.  Then it was and glued together to create a nice thick chipboard snowman.  The hat was made from 2 die cut cereal and two die cute white.  The arms were made from 2 die cut Kraft.  I tried to make the arms from cereal boxes but the multiple layers ended up looking messy, so I pared it back to two.  Pink chalk was used for the rosy cheeks.







All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock: Terra Cotta, Spring Moss, Aqua Mist, Ocean Tides, Kraft
Stamps: Shape it Up Snowman
Ink:  Spring Moss, Aqua Mist, Black (Memento)
Dies: Shape it Up Snowman, Holly Jolly (Lil' Inkers)
