Colour Create Challenge

Good morning and welcome to another Colour Create Challenge !

This week our colour combo was chosen by our very talented DT member, Mina and this is her inspirational photo for us all to use

So this week's colour combo is green, red and white with the optional extra being Christmas !

The rest of the DT's work is outstanding again this week and there is a fantastic luminaria that Karen has made that I will just have to have a go at preferably before Christmas !!

The DP's are both My Mind's Eye Signature Christmas which are so yummy and just perfect for that vintage look.

The image is a Christmas Angel from Lili of the Valley which I bought at the NEC. Isn't she beautiful ? She has been coloured with ProMarkers. Her wings have had the Stickles treatment !

The Christmas sentiment behind the Angel is a new stamp from Magnolia so I had to do some masking and bring out my SU stampamajig which is just a life saver and makes life so much easier for any stamping you do, not only masking. I use it for placing sentiments on cards and for centering (is that how you spell it ?!!!) things - an amazing tool and well worth getting one I would say and I don't even work for SU !!!

I inked the edges with antique linen distress ink and then stamped a holly border stamp from a clear stamp set from Hero Arts around the edge in the same ink.

The ribbon is from my stash.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I inked the edges with antique linen distress ink and added some Stickles. The leaves are punched from a Woodware leaf punch and I added some Picket Fence distress Stickles to them to give them a snowy effect.

We look forward to seeing all your fantastic creations and hope you can come along and play with us this week ! We had a brilliant response to last week's challenge and it was so good to see so many of you playing along.

Thank you for your visit and for any comments you may leave, they always mean so much.

Have a great windy and rainy Thursday and I do hope the weathermen have got it wrong especially for those of you in the North of the Country.
