Hello friends. Playing along with the challenge over at Merry Monday today, and this week they are asking us to use black, white, and gray/silver on our Christmas cards. What an elegant color combination, and there are some absolutely stunning cards from the DT and in the gallery! Here's what I came up with:
I started with a "smooshed" water colored background using Smokey Slate ink, and I really like how it turned out...totally makes me think Winter! Next I stamped in black the trees from SU!'s classic set Lovely As A Tree (are you catching this Dot?? It's a CLASSIC and you do NEED it!!). I framed around this layer using PTI's Cover Plate: Pretty Frame Die, and then mounted it to a black card base. I even finished the inside:
The tree is also from the Lovely As A Tree set, and the sentiment is from Neat & Tangled Bright Baubles. I added a small silver die cut star from that set on the tree and also on the center tree on the front of the card.
There's still time to play, and you definitely need to check out all the beauties over at the Merry Monday site right HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!! :0)
