MOJO167 & cQc61 Christmas Tag

Wednesday, December 1, 2010

First, I saw this fabulous color challenge over at the Colour Q blog:

I have to admit I have a thing for peacock colors, so I knew right away that I wanted to participate in this challenge.  I paired my card with the latest MOJO sketch.


Of course, the last challenge of the month is always a choice between a round or square card.  I went with the round and made a Christmas tag. 
First, let me say that this looks WAY better in real life.  I stamped the leaf from the French Foliage stamp set on Pacific Point and Tempting Turquoise card stock.  I added Dazzling Diamonds to the Tempting Turquoise leaves and chunky glitter to the Pacific Point leaves.  I stamped some leafy bits from the Tropical Party stamp set onto Soft Suede and cut everything out.  I layered it all together, added some rhinestones in the center and presto!  My version of some peacock feathers!

It's really quite sparkly and that doesn't come across in the photo at all. 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time to stamp today!

WOW!!! I can't imagine how stunning it looks in real life! Great use of the colours. It must have taken a long time to cut out those thin brown pieces. Yikes! Thanks for playing along with ColourQ this week. :)
