Snowtacular Color Challenge!


Today's Color Challenge at SCS was just that -- a challenge! The colors (So Saffron, Tempting Turquoise, and Real Red) are colors I never would have put together otherwise, but thanks to some SU! paper, I made it work! The red paper is from a SU! Simply Scrappin' Kit, and the Turquoise paper is Petals & Paisleys double sided paper. All images are from the set Reindeer Games by C.C. Designs. You can find it at All That Scraps. This card is 5 1/4" square. Most of it is self-explanatory. I watercolored the deer with an aquapainter and ink pad lids. I did add some machine stitching in a few places, and the swirl is stamped in white craft ink and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder. The supplies are listed below.

I'll be back later with some little Halloween treats! One more day 'til Halloween! :)

Stamps: Reindeer Games (C.C. Designs) Cardstock: So Saffron, Tempting Turquoise (SU!); Coconut Smoothies (Bazzill) Paper: SU! Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black; White Craft, Tempting Turquoise, So Saffron, Real Red, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel (SU!) Other: aquapainter, white detail EP, heat tool, 1/8" handheld punch, red grosgrain ribbon, stampin' dimensionals (SU!); white gel pen (Marvy), snowflake eyelet, sewing machine & white thread
