My Favorite Things - Color Challenge 173

Well hello there and welcome to my blog for a new Color Challenge 173 at My Favorite Things.   Are you going to play along for a chance to win?   Here's my inspiration card and below it the colours you'll be working with.

To get this card started I first used the A2 Stitched Rectangles STAX Die-namics (Set 2) to create a panel smaller than A2.  I used Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics to divide the panel and for the sky portion I ink blended using Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink.   This was splashed with water and blotted up and then I used white acrylic paint to create snowfall.

Once dry, I stamped the sentiment and this top portion was adhered to a full size A2 panel and then lower 'snow' half was backed with foam tape and applied as well.   At this point I attached it to my card base.

I stamped the images I was using from Jingle All The Way and coloured them with Copic markers making sure to keep to the colours for the challenge.   Here's my colour palette:-

Reindeer and Girl's Hair - E44, E43, E42, E41, E0000
Skin - E04, E11, E21, E00
Reds - R89, R39, R29
Greys - T6, T5, T3, T2, T1, T0
Greens - BG96, G94, G21, YG61
Belt Buckle and Star - Y15

Points were highlighted with a white gel pen and then the elements were die cut using the coordinating die-namics and applied to the scene with foam tape.

To complete the card, I reached for the white acrylic paint again and I used a stylus to dot on the snow across the characters.   I decided no further embellishment was necessary as I was liking the CAS look and so with that the card was completed.

Best of luck with your own entry, I look forward to seeing what you all make.
