Happy Monday! I hope everyone who celebrates it had a wonderful Christmas (and if you don't celebrate it, that you had a wonderful day, period), and that this week-between-the-years (as it's always felt to me) continues the festivities!
Over at the Gingersnap Creations blog, our latest challenge is all about the colors. Snow, Pine and Mahogany, to be exact, and just think of all the lovely things you can do with that particular combo!
I'm a bit late posting my piece, so please excuse the Christmas theme, but I just had to use this image. See, a couple of weeks ago, I visited my favorite antique store, Blue Moon, over in the historic district and was delighted to find a stack of old greeting cards, some dating as far back as 1929, but most from the late-1940s/early-1950s. The glittery bell at the center of my piece is from a card dated 1951. To make it my own, I cut a frame for it using Tim Holtz's Baroque Alterations Die, colored that with Cranberry Adirondack ink, and stamped the little holly leaves from Darcy's Cardinal Ornament set. The details were colored with Copic Sketch markers.
I love those old cards.
I so hope you'll check out the gorgeous things my Gingersnaps design teammates created for this challenge-- there's some truly exceptional stuff going on there!-- and then, please create something of your own to share with us. This challenge is open through January 23, and wouldn't Snow, Pine and Mahogany make a gorgeous Valentine's palette? It'll be here before we know it! ;-)
