52CCT - Colours ....

.... Hello!  It's time for our new challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown; this week we have some gorgeous colours for you to use - a blue, two shades of pink, teal and green.  You only have to use three of them, but it would be great if you could try to use them all.  Here's my take:

Merry & Bright - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Stampin' Up! - Gorgeous Grunge, Wondrous Wreath; Stampendous - Mega Merry
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black; SU - Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Copic Markers; SU DP - Rich Razzleberry


I'm submitting this to CASology - CAS#116 where the cue word is SPLATTER.  I stamped the sentiment directly on the card and then stamped on the splatter images.  I restamped the word Merry on some scrap card and coloured the letters with Copic markers, cut them out, edged them with a black marker and then adhered them directly to the card.  On the inside I made a mat from dark pink design paper and added a simple greeting.

For more inspiration using these fabulous colours, check out the cards from the rest of the team.

While I had the Stampendous set out, I decided to make another card .  This one is for Merry Monday - MM#129 to use neon colours, and the layout is based on the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch! - CTS#96.

Stamps: Stampin' Up! -  Wondrous Wreath; Stampendous - Mega Merry
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black; Versamark; Hero Arts - Neon Pink
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Copic Markers; SU Card - Night of Navy; SU DP - Night of Navy; White Embossing Powder


I stamped the word "Merry" on some white card and coloured each letter with a neon Copic marker.  I cut way some of the white card to leave the top of the letters free and then adhered the rest of the panel to the card base.  I cut a dark blue panel of card and adhered that to the base too.  I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to position the word "Christmas" and stamped it and the snowflakes in Versamark and heat embossed with white powder.  I carried the neon through to the inside by edging the white panel with a neon green marker and stamping the sentiment in neon pink.

That's all for now.  We're off to a cider mill today - should be lots of fun and a great opportunity for more photos!!  See you soon.
