A Colour Explosion for TioT's.


'Colour Explosion', is our new theme over at Try it on Tuesdays
The added information we were given was 'Bright seasonal colours'.
 Now for those of you who regularly visit, this is not one of my comfort zones.
The colours I decided to use were- Fired Brick distress ink, [ for  Christmas , also we have Bonfire Night on the 5th November in the UK] and a touch of Bundled sage because its an  autumnal shade.
So Christmas is coming and this is one of my first cards.
I used an Embossalicious folder for my base card, liberally swiping it over with the distress ink pads, before blending.
Buttons and scraps of materials etc are always to hand on my desk.
The poinsettia is a die cut, I often use the petals of this for leaves.

Thank you for stopping by, I so so enjoy reading your comments.

  7. I like the contemporary feel to this. All too often Christmas cards are traditional yet not everyone likes vintage style - gorgeous use of the lattice effect.
