Hosting the Color Challenge!

Tonight Emily our fearless Color Challenge Hostess is under the weather so she asked me to host Tuesday's Color Challenge. I was so excited...then I realized hmm....I have to choose the colors! Yikes! And since we're on Challenge 192...there's a lot to make sure you're not duplicating!

So...I decided that since we've not used Pacific Point much, we'd throw that in with Basic Gray and Certainly Celery.

Here is my sample:


I stamped in Stazon on watercolor paper and watercolored with Reinkers and SW Markers, I also added Lumiere to the snow and tree to give it shimmer. It really doesn't photograph, but it has a pretty shine to it all. Here is a closeup of the shimmer - I wish it showed better. I also used Shimmer White for the sentiment and mounting.

Thanks for looking!

Back tomorrow with another card!

Recipe: Stamps: Home for Christmas, Winter Post (snowflake) Paper: Pacific Point, Certainly Celery Prints, Urban Garden DSP, Watercolor, Shimmer White Ink: Black Stazon, Pacific Point, Basic Gray Accessories: Ticket Corner Punch, Stylized Silver HPH, Dimensionals, White Gel Pen, Silver Stretchy cording, Piercer, Reinkers, SW Markers
