CCT - Colours ....

.... Morning! Huge apologies to my team mates, I'm running late with my DT card for our new challenge at Christmas Card Throwdown - CCT#02. We have some wonderfully warm colours for you to use on your cards for the next couple of weeks - CREAM, AQUA AND BROWN - and only these colours. My mojo took a holiday last week, but I dreamt this card last night - here it is:

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

Stamps: Uniko - Pure Florals Poinsettia, Simply Said Christmas, Most Wonderful
Inks: Versafine - Antique Sepia; Stampin' Up! - Tempting Turquoise
Dies: Lil Inkers - Dotted Rectangles #3
Accessories; Cream Lustre Card; SU Card - Early Espresso; Tim Holtz Water Colour Card; Zig Clean Color Brushes; Spectrum Noir Sparkle - Clear; Clear Embossing Powder


I love this gorgeous poinsettia image. Using my MISTI I stamped it in brown Versafine ink on water colour card, coloured it with Zig water colour brushes and a clear spectrum noir brush - such a shame you can't see all the sparkle - it's so pretty. Once completely dry, I put the image back in the MISTI and stamped it again, added clear embossing powder and heat set it. I like doing this as it gives really clean, crisp lines. I then fussy cut the flower. I created the base from dark brown card and die cut a panel of cream card using the dotted die. I added a simple Christmas greeting at the top of the panel. On the inside I cut another panel of cream card on which I stamped the outline poinsettia again, adding just a touch of colour to the centre. I finished with a Christmas message.

I'm submitting this card to the new challenge at Addicted to CAS - ATCAS#103 where the cue word is WISH - well, I've got wishes, but that should be okay. So glad my mojo is back!

Don't forget to visit Christmas Card Throwdown to see more inspiration cards from the rest of the Design Team - they have made such lovely cards. You've got plenty of time to join the fun - deadline for submission is midnight (GMT) Friday 3rd February - that's 7.00pm EDT.
