WMSC#67 and Circles Color Trends Challenge
Yay, It's time for another challenge over at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog! This weeks brief is to create a card, tag, scrapbook page, 3D item or other project using the following inspirational and fun sketch:-
I also decided to play along with the Circles Color Trends Challenge at Embellish Magazine's blog. I had to improvise with the red color a little - so i hope this still qualifies!! The colours as you can see from the picture below are Green, Brown, White & Red.....
and here is what I came up with .....
I immediately thought to make a tag, but I actually think this would look good as an Ornament hanging on my Christmas tree.
I cut a blossom shape out of green felt using my blossom nestabilities and then used the Marianne Designs CreaTable die to cut the snowflake shape. I then stamped and layered the circle shapes on top of that to add some dimension. I stamped the snowman image in dark brown ink and then used copic markers to bring my snowman to life - to make him look a little 'whiter' I added some light blue shading around his face & middle; used walnut copic marker to colour his hat; added red and green stripes to his scarf and gave the little lantern a soft gentle glow by adding warm yellow!!
I added chritmassy red stickles to highlight the red band on his hat and also to the berry wreath he is attached to!! Some yummy red Dew Drops, ribbon, twine and buttons complete my little Christmassy tag.
I do hope you've enjoyed looking - thank you so much for stopping by my blog today!
