City Crafter 338

Hello!

Tuesday is upon us once again and it's time for a new challenge over at City Crafter
This week the lovely Stella has chosen our challenge and the theme is 
Beach Colours For Christmas



 I decided to make a bunch of my Christmas cards with paints and inks this year ... They come together so quickly and I really like making them. This time I smooshed distress stains onto CS and I blew across to get the streaks before splattering with Mr Huey's Calico mist. 


I did two of them in similar colours ... This is the other one


I added a Tim Holtz tree cut in glitter foam and left the centre piece in, funnily enough my DH loves these cards and usually he doesn't say much at all


We have Danielle  Guest Designing with us again this week having also won our challenge in Week 332, please go visit the City Crafter Blog to see what Danielle and the rest of our team have to inspire you.

Thanks so much for your visit, have a great day

I love your backgrounds. I am going to have to try that blowing technique. Love the silver tress with the simple sentiments. Just beautiful,Ros.

Ahhh, so that explains some of your streaky, splattery fantastic-ness. You make the BEST watercolor backgrounds! I absolutely love these colors, and they look like colors beach-loving you would like, as well. The silver trees look fabulous on these backgrounds. Beautiful!

Stella said...

Your husband is not the only one; I love them too:). This colour palette is one of my faves and I guess the same goes for you. Using watercolours and inks is a great idea for Christmas cards and you always come up with stunning cards. I am a fan:)
Thinking of you,
