I've just come off a very relaxing three day weekend with 4th of July celebrations to boot, but now it's back to the office and back to reality. But before I head in to work, I've got a card to show you using the latest palette at colourQ.
The colors are a little patriotic, but after seeing the Christmas in July challenge at The Paper Players I decided those colors would look good on a Christmas card as well. I used some Diamond Sparkle Medium on the background using a stencil and I can tell you that it looks much better in person. The sparkle barely shows up here! The challenge at Creative With Stamps is to use ink splatters and since those can sometimes look like snow too, I inked some behind Santa. I like how it mimics the snowy background.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope that I'll get to see you in the colourQ gallery this week. There's a lot of inspiration from the design team at colourQ so be sure to check it out!
