The Artful Stampers Blog Hop #116


Welcome from Nicole’s blog.
This week is our last challenge for 2016 and we have a Colour Challenge.

This is what we had to work with:
This is what I came up with:

CASE'd from Michelle Lupton
I know the colours we were given are quite bold but I muted them down by watercoloring and 2nd gen stamping. I used Elegant Eggplant for my sentiment and dashes but the colour is so dark that it looks like black. I also used a few neutral colours for may card stock which may be bending the rules just a little. (wink)

I flipped it on its side and created another Christmas Card this week. 


There are lots of things I really love about this card. 1. The colour combo has to be one of my favourites. 2. Those new Lace Doilies are just too cute. 3. The enamel shapes. I have started putting those on everything.
