Hey friends, Christy here with a super fun Christmas card inspired by our current challenge! I took the color palette and gave it a girly twist by adding pink into the mix. I’d been dying to ink up my Winter Otter, so I colored him with Copic markers and gave him a little candy cane to hold. So cute!
For a finishing touch, I added a trio of Stitched Snowflakes, with a dab of Stickles glitter glue in the centers. If you’d like to see the video tutorial for this card, please visit my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty.
To start I blended Wilted Violet, Broken China, and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide inks onto a piece of watercolor paper and spritzed it with Perfect Pearls spray for a little shimmer. I trimmed down the panel and adhered it to white card base. Next I stamped the flamingo from Flamingo Together onto Copic-friendly cardstock with Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink and colored him with Copic markers. I also added some clear sparkle over his body for extra shine. I die-cut him with the coordinating dies and set him aside while I put the card together.
I used the Ocean Wave Borders die to die cut light blue cardstock and then stamped the sentiment from Flamingo Together with Versamark ink and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder. I adhered the waves to the water-colored background and then used foam mounting tape to adhere my flamingo to the scene. I finished the card with a sprinkling of clear iridescent sequins!
I hope this gives you some ideas on how to use the color palette for our current challenge! Have a wonderful weekend and happy crafting!
