Pretty in pink and green ....

... that's what Mona Pendleton from Cupcake Creations wants.  Now I think that Mona designs the most awesome cards.  She is a member of the Design Team at Waltzingmouse Stamps as well as designing for Spellbinders.  So as you can tell Mona is one creative lady.  She has recently started to host her own colour challenges - Create for fun - hence CR84FN.  Don't you love that :)  This is the first time I've played along.  The inspiration comes from this sketch:



Now you may already have noticed that green is one of my favourite colours, and as I also rather like pink I thought I'd give it a go.  I've kept my card relatively clean and simple and I used a masking technique to create the forest of Christmas trees - all made from the wonderful Teeny Trees set.  For the topper I used the Nutcracker Prince - and coloured him shades of pink and green.  And that makes another card towards my Christmas Collection.  Actually, I'm rather pleased how this turned out.  So here's my take on "Pretty in Pink and Green".



Stamps:  Waltzingmouse Stamps - Nutcracker Sweet, Teeny Trees
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black, Cottage Ivy, New Sprout, Bamboo Leaves, Rich Cocoa, Angel Pink; Distress - Worn Lipstick
Pens:  Pilot - Silver; Promarkers - Apple, Meadow Green, Magenta, Cerise, Baby Pink, Cool Grey 1; Stardust - Gold, Clear
Spellbinders: Mega Ovals and Mega Scalloped Ovals

Craft class this morning was lots of fun.  I finished off some of my homework from the Back to Basics course at MCC.  I completed my swatch sheet of embossing powders.  I didn't realise I had so many!!!  And it was a very worthwhile exercise - I realise that there were some powders that had never been used.  But now I know how they look.  I'll post some up here tomorrow - see you then.

Love the masked trees in those greens - hello fellow greenite - I too adore green, from bottle to olive via lime. Your Nutcracker Prince is delightful in those colours too & I do like that he's grounded.
