Never stop looking up - Creative with Stamps #10

 Sunday January 1, 2017
 
Happy New Years...  Wishing you all the best for the new year. I hope it's all you make will make it be.
 
It's time for a new year and a new challenge at
 
Winter Wonderland and color challenge
 
make sure you add this graphic to your blog 


Well this is my card. When I printed out the color challenge the colors looked more grays vs. purplish gray and the last color was more tanish color..   Anyhow I used watercolor paper and white embossed the Co-motion snowflake and embossed in white then I took rangers inks in gray and burgundy and did the spritz with water and laid the paper in the inks till I got the effect I wanted. I LOVE the background!!!! I then took some heavy vellum and Tech. Tuesday sentiment and white embossed and added to my card. (I love the sentiment) I then die cut out of that 100 sheet silver paper I got by mistake the two snowflakes. One is by Simon Says and One is by My Favorite Things. I then added the sequin to the center of the snowflakes and some silver stickles to the center of that. I added the watercolor paper to kraft and then white card stock.  Did I say I LOVE this card?? LOL
 
I hope you play along. You can add three cards. Make sure you stamp or use a digi and add the challenge graphic to your blog. and follow the theme
