I hope you are having a good week. It has been rather wet here and that has been messing up the traffic.
Today sees the start of a new challenge on the Crafty Addicts Challenge blog and the theme is autumn colours. I did it again I ordered the image before I realised about the colours. The sponsor that my image came from is called Lacy Sunshine Stamps. The image I chose to use is called Peace on Earth - Angel Kiss and she is in the Christmas section of the store.
Don't I make things hard for myself choosing a Christmas image to use with autumn colours? Then I remembered the angel that used to go on top of our tree and she was dressed in golds, greens and browns.
I cut all the mats and layers and I used dies to cut the mats for round the image. There is some brown glitter card in there I got this free at a craft show and I thought I won't use that. Well I was wrong it has nearly run out and I am thinking of buying some more. On the top layer I stamped a small poinsettia stamp all over page with CS Perfect Medium then I heat embossed it with a clear powder. Finally I inked all over the page with three shades of Distress ink.
This is a beautiful image I coloured her with my Promarkers.
I cut the sentiment with a Sue Wilson die in gold and brown this meant that it could have a drop shadow. This helped to give it definition against the background.
I made a poinsettia using Sue Wilson dies again with brown, gold and green.
If you click on the logo above you will be taken to the store.
There you have my Christmas card made in autumn colours. I think you could make a Christmas card just about any colour you like.
Enjoy the rest of the week.
