There is a new challenge up and running over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. This week’s challenge is a color challenge and featuring the colors Yellow, Orange and Red.
I pulled out a holiday stamp set from The Verve and stamped it out onto some water color paper. I also die cut the sentiment using another Verve die. Then using progressively larger circle dies, I blended onto some Bristol paper an ombre effect using Distress Oxides. I used Fired Brick, Candied Apple, Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey, Fossilized Amber and Squeezed Amber.
I sprayed the paper with some clear water and splattered some Candies Apple and Spiced Marmalade onto the paper. Additionally, I die cut and stamped a poinsettia and colored it in using the two Distress Red Oxides from above.
I can’t wait to see who you used this unusual color scheme on your Christmas card.
