Non Traditional Holiday Colors
I've never done 3 posts in 1 day (of course my DeNami Blog Hop post was done ahead of time), but the deadline is early tomorrow for the monthly MFT Guest Designer challenge. I've been waiting for just the right project to use this gorgeous KI Memories printed paper I've had a long time. Well, today was the day! It's good practice to try for something really big & I was immediately drawn to the sketch. I began by randomly stamping the cute little snowflakes in the MFT Seasonal Sentiments set using Brilliance Pearlescent Purple, Pearlescent Coral & Pearlescent Sky Blue. I die cut 4 circles from the stamped piece using Spellbinders Standard Circles Large. I brushed each one with Tsukineko's Shimmer Spritz Sparkle & mounted them with foam tape to white textured cardstock circles cut from the next size up die. My card front was covered with silver shimmer cardstock & a piece of the circles printed paper was glued to the bottom half. The beautiful shimmery winter words paper was then mounted with foam tape & the circles were glued in place. The sentiment from the same set is stamped in Brilliance Starlite Black, matted with a scrap of the same silver shimmer cardstock & attached with foam tape. Lots of very talented people enter these contests, but I had fun making a card I'm really happy with. Thanks for giving me feedback--I always enjoy reading your comments.
