Create with Connie and Mary CCMC268
I've missed challenges over at Create with Connie and Mary the last few weeks, but I'm pleased to report there is a colour challenge this week, which caught my attention.
These are the colours and are so up my alley, right? I love the pastels. Normally I'd do flowers or butterflies with these pretty colours, but I'm going to surprise you all.
Today I'm using the colours to create Christmas Cards. Who'd have thought about this combination for Christmas. Not my norm, but I'm happy with these pretty cards, nice and frosty looking. We have nothing that closely resembles a Frosty Christmas at all in Australia. It's quite the opposite, however I do like these cool results.
Here is the one I'm entering for the challenge. It uses a combination of stamps from Winter Post (retired) and Evergreen (carryover Christmas Flyer).
I've added one of the Frosty Finish embellishments to a banner at the top of the card and I've coloured these skaters with blender pens. The base of both cards is Pistachio Pudding and the dsp is from the pack Afternoon Picnic. Here are some closeup shots.
I hope you love these pretty colours as much as I do, because I made a second card with them. Here is the next card I made while all of my supplies were handy. I've used the same stamp sets as above just substituting the colours and images, going with the reindeer this time instead of the skaters.
and this time I've used the Snow Flurry die.
Please feel free to leave some comments on my work, and have a great week.
