Day 3 of Christmas Chaos

On the third day of Chaos,  Catch the Bug gave to me, an interesting colour challenge! I do recall having a go at a colour challenge before but it was a while ago.
I see brown greys and dusky rose pinks in this so that is the colour scheme I have used for my card.

Materials used:SAM_2497(watermarked)
Bugaboo Stamp – Christmas SB Ornament
15 cm square white card blank
grey card
2 designer Christmas papers from stash
white stamping card
fancy edge cutting die (freebie from a magazine but I think it is Die’sire)
Copic pens
small snowflake stamp (Creative Stamping Magazine)
black archival ink pad

Print out the image to the desired size and colour in with the Copics. (I have tried to stick as close to the colours in the photo as I could, but the holly had to be green!) Stamp out the little snowflakes in black ink along the middle of the bauble.

Use the die to cut the top left corner then cut the image square from that corner. Back onto grey card cutting around all the edges. 

Cover the front of the card blank with one paper and mat the image onto another. Attach the matted image to the front of the card.

SAM_2498(watermarked)I also made a couple of ATC’s using the smaller images I had printed to test the colours on.

I am now only two days behind so I may catch up in time! Thanks for popping in. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

    Such a cute image(made me think of the quilter’s Sunbonnet Sue at Christmas!). Great interpretation of the color challenge, and I LOVE that die shaping at the top. Very pretty & graceful, just right for this cute little holiday Miss. Sorry to hear you’ve got a ‘bug’ on top of the other things, but hope you’ll feel well enough to enjoy the Big Day. Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and bountiful Blessings in 2016. TFS & Hugs too.
