Color Hues #8 - GREEN & BLUE

Hello friends.  Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas?!  Ours was quiet but nice...we even had a bit of snow to make it feel a bit more like Christmas!  

I received a couple new stamps for Christmas, (Thanks Sue!!) from the Colorado Craft Company with the sweet images from Anita Jeram and just had to ink up the Snow Happy set to play along with the current Color Hues Challenge, where they are looking for us to use GREEN & BLUE on our cards.


I wanted to keep my image very CAS, so I just stamped the image in black, and then used only a bit of green and blue to water color and highlight the leaves and snow...


Isn't that just the sweetest scene with the bunny offering a snowball to the deer?!  After I finished water coloring the snow and leaves, I used one of The Greetery's Nordic Frame Dies to die cut the image and then backed it with a piece of Garden Green cardstock (SU!) and then adhered to a white card base.


I also added some Wink of Stella to the snow which you can see just a bit in this close up photo.  A very CAS card but I really like how it turned out!

This challenge ends in just a couple days, but if you got some new goodies for Christmas that would look good in GREENS and BLUES, then check out the Color Hues Challenge and play along!

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!

Adorable Winter scene with the deer and bunny friends, Marcia. I love your CAS design and minimal watercoloring with blue and green colors. Beautiful die cut frame too. Thank you also for your beautiful Peace-Love-Joy Christmas care, which we received on the 24th. I love your background and pretty die cut
snowflakes. Wishing you a Happy Healthy New Year, my friend. Love and Hugs..Nancy
