52CCT - Colours .....

Hello!!  It's time for our colour challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown and Louise has some gorgeous colours for us to play with - she's based them on fresh strawberries!!!!  Here's my take:

Merry Christmas - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Around Christmas Time
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black
Dies: Spellbinders - Large Circles (S4-114) #5, Sm Pinking Circles (S4-172) #5
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Ribbon from stash; Holographic Silver card; Gems; Copics; Wink of Stella Silver Brush; Glitter and Flock


I've used the sketch from this week's CAS(E) this Sketch - CTS#80 and the theme from Merry Monday - MM#112 to feature Santa's hat.  I stamped the image on to white card, coloured the hat with Copic markers, coloured the background to remove the original sentiment and added some glitter to the hat and flock for the beard.  I coloured the bell with a yellow Copic and then added silver glitter.  I added a simple silver peel off greeting to echo the silver holographic frame and I finished the front with some gems.  The inside is, at the moment, blank.

For more inspiration using these fabulous colours check out the cards from the rest of the Design Team and also from our Guest Designer Marie.   Looking forward to seeing your creations!

I love the Father Christmas image Deborah. I have a cross stitch pattern of a Santa just like this, and love it. I love how you've showcased him beautifully with the pretty ribbon too - it adds texture and interest. Another brilliantly festive card. Hugs, Gill x
