LIM - Colour challenge!

Good morning all!

Today I have a card to share with you that I've made for this week's LIM challenge. Chrissie and Mandi want to see a card made using 'the colour of your eyes'! Now my eyes are a what I would decribe as a bit of a 'mucky' colour. They are hazel 'ish' but they are more brown than green, so I went with the colour brown for my card!

I created a winter snow scene using my new favourite christmas stamps..

and of course a simple decorated interior...


Materials

CS: SU Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla

Stamps: SU Welcome Christmas, Lovely as a Tree

Tools: SU Stamp-a-ma-jig,

Misc: SU Ink in Chocolate Chip, Cherry Cobbler, Craft White, shimmer paint in frost white


I am just so in love with the Welcome Christmas stamp set. It's not a new set, but it's new to me as I have only just discovered it and I cannot stop using it!! There are 5 stamps in the set and it comes in either clear or wood mount option. The 'seasons greetings' sentiment is also from this set. I used a cherry cobbler marker to ink only the 'seasons greetings' part of the framed sentiment that comes in this set. I'm sure you'll be seeing plenty more of this set in the coming months!

Well thanks for stopping by today, I've got to get off to work now (Unfortunately! I'd rather be at home crafting!).

Hugs, Victoria ~x~
