Non Traditional Christmas Colors

It's Tuesday so time for another Tuesday Morning Sketch #119.  This week's sketch was designed by Kathy Curry and There She Goes clear stamps is the sponsor. This is the great sketch we are using to create our cards.


I am way behind this year and haven't even figured out what Christmas cards I will be making. I usually choose one stamp and make different versions with the same stamp.  While I was brain storming I flipped through a K and Co. pad, pulled out 2 different papers and decided to see what could be created with these papers using the sketch that Kathy designed.


These are the brightest, non traditional colors that I have ever used. Purple and teal and green......oh my! With a touch of red and pink. I think I have covered all the colors of the rainbow in this card. the adorable penguin is a Darcie stamp and being an equal opportunity employer...I used Copic markers, Prisma colored pencils, gel pens and Stickles on the jolly guy. The background paper was embossed with a Sizzix folder, the snowflake doilies are from PTI, the striped shape on the right is a Nestie, rhinestones and ribbon are from Michael's, the tiny snowflakes are from a Fiskar corner punch, the snowflake charm is from Fire Mountain Gems. As usual I used a Marvy Metallic pen on the edges of the CS.

Check out the great cards from the amazing DT:  Angela, Dawn, Jacki, Jessica, KathyTheresa, Melissa.

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.
