A huge thank you to all those brave crafters who undertook last week's challenge at Colour Create ! It was a hard colour combo last week, wasn't it ? Never mind ! We have an easier one for you this week.
Our very talented DT member Chris has chosen the colour combo of ruby, cream and gold with the optional extra of gems.
The very first thing that sprang into my mind when I saw this colour combo was of course Christmas and I really, really wanted to to do something other than Christmas. I already had my Christmas box down from doing another DT card that had the theme "Christmas" and opening that box again after a year was like opening a new Christmas pressie ! The pull to use all those scrummy goodies was too much so here is my Christmas card !!!!
The DP's are BasicGrey "Wassail".
The image is Anya and she has been coloured with ProMarkers. I also added some pearls for her buttons.
Colours : Skin - Ivory, blush and E01 Copic. Hair - sandstone, cinnamon and henna. Clothes - ruby.
If you click on the picture you will see an enlargement and you will see that for the background of the image, I masked Anya and stamped some Studio G snowflakes in watermark Versafine and then clear embossed them. I then rubbed over some Brilliance gold ink. I did the same with the label which is actually cream card with embossing and gold ink.
The sentiment is a Melissa Frances transfer.
Anya has been layered and matted on Core'dinations red card and gold card from my stash.
The gold braid and red ribbon is from my stash.
The diamond gems are also from my stash.
The other fantastically talented ladies that I work with have done a marvellous job again this week (when do they ever not ?!) and you would be crazy not to admire their work.
