Non - Traditional Colours.

It's time once again for the girls
in the Christmas Card Club
to show our cards for the last challenge 
of the current  year
which was set by Granmargaret.

'Non- Traditional Colours.'

The card that I have made is so not what  I started
out to make but you know what?
I absolutely love the result! 

I matted chestnut brown card stock onto a blank card base.
Design paper was in my stash but I have no name on the back.
More card stock in donkey brown and then
I created this little scene using  'Stampscapes'
Tree Cluster Sm and  small Buck.
I already had the scalloped  die cut circle cut out in my stash .
I used various shades of distress inks in Browns/Wild honey
for sky, sun and hills and stamped the images using  Walnut Stain.
The sentiment is a gold peel off which I stuck onto a scrap of card
which I then coloured to match the secene.
The wording and scene are both popped up on 3D  pads.

I painted diamond Stickles  onto the scene
and this close up shows some 
of  the lovely  sparkle it gives.

Just a Thought

If you've come looking for The Elf
his exploits are in the posts below!

It's week 2 over at my Butterfly Challenge
where the theme is fairies.
Can be Christmas or non christmas
just so long as they have wings.
The challenge  is running for the whole of Dec
and there is a $15.00 gift certificate for the winner
A day For Daisies.

My inspiration for you today
is the 2nd scene that I did on the 
recent  Lavinia workshop I attended.
I used distress inks for the background,
Memento 'Nautical Blue ' for the stamping
and  Lavinia  'Small pixies'.
Sentiment by Lavinia stamps.
A light sprinkling of green stickles
which I painted on with a tiny brush.

I liked the simplicity of the white space in the centre
so decided to also  mount onto a white card base .
I first distressed round the edges
with my handy little paper distressing  gadget.
Clean and simples.

Just one problem though. The light box being white 
the card was lost so I placed a sheet of
pearlised navy card behind and retook the photo.


Entering into the following challenges:
Through The Craft Room Door #  Anything goes.
Little Miss Muffet #100 Anything goes.
Sister Act #86 Anything goes.
Sweet Stampin # Things with wings.
