My challenge to myself this week is a Christmas card each day. I am doing pretty good so far. I am combining three challenges for this card.
The first challenge is the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch. I believe you can see the sketch in my design.
The second challenge is at Time Out Challenges where the challenge is to make a Christmas card with the added twist of purple or pink. I love to make non traditional color Christmas cards and I just happened to have this purple background already made.
The third challenge is Shopping your Stash. Their challenge is to go paperless which means no patterned paper. Just about everything I make has patterned paper - many layers of patterned paper on it.
The background paper is watercolor using a purple distress ink. It may be the new color but since the paper had already been made for awhile, I don't know for sure. The stamp set I used is from Hero Arts. Everything is embossed in silver with white splatters on top. I had never used the set before but I really like it. The brush trees are beautiful embossed in white and silver.
I really like how the card turned out. Love the tree. Enjoy the remainder of your day.
