CB Colour Challenge #28

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well. 

After I made this quick card I realized that it matches the colours for the current challenge at Chocolate Baroque's Colour Challenge #28 so I will join in the fun.   These are favorite colours and I'm sure they were stuck in my head after seeing the beautiful samples at the challenge blog.



I used the resist embossing technique for the first time in a long while.   I embossed the tree and words from the fabulous Steampunk Christmas with white powder.     Next I sprinkled Brusho powders, spritzed with water, let them blend and then sprayed a little turquoise Dylusions ink.    I also stamped with a snowflake from Reindeer Landscape in the background.

Below is the beautiful colour sample (created by Miranda) for the current Challenge which ends on November 15th.



Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,
Shirley

What an intriguing, gorgeous snowflake tree image! It's especially dramatic done in the white EP for the detail and texture, Shirley. Those amazing background colors with the green stamped larger snowflakes make it pure magic! I always like when you stamp shapes in your backgrounds to lend that air of magic and movement! The sentiment is just as pretty as the tree. It's a wonderful creation, Shirley!

We finally had three mornings that dipped into the 40s! but temperatures are back on the rise, and we will be in the mid-to-upper 80s for the rest of the next week. Still, it was nice having lower humidity and cooler temperatures. Even the dog and cat were full of energy!

Hoping you are enjoying yourself! xoxox

Fabulous cards. I really like that steampunk stamp set. The tree looks beautiful embossed over those colours. I've been an embossing machine lately.
