Color Hues #31

It's time for a new color another challenge at the Color Hues! I hope you join us for Color Hues #31! 

I created my own coloured cardstock by ink blending Distress Oxide inks on to a panel of Bristol Smooth. I used Abandoned Coral, Candied Apple and Festive Berries for the red panel which I stamped and embossed using I used with Pretty Pink Posh Poinsettias stamp set. Then I made a second green panel using Mowed Lawn, Pine Needles and Lucky Clover. I spritzed both panels with water and splattered some watered down white acrylic paint.

I glued the flowers and leaves to a white panel using tape runner and foam tape. A sentiment was added from Pretty Pink Posh Christmas Friends and I finished off my card by adding some gold sparkle jewels.


I can't wait to see what you make for this challenge!
