*So thrilled to have my card among the top picks at Freshly Made Sketches!*
Welcome to another Watercooler Challenge! This week's challenge is a colour challenge. It's always interesting to see what one can do with set colours and with our colours being Night of Navy, Marina Mist and Silver, I decided my card would have a Christmas theme. Since one of my newest stamp sets happens to be Gentle Peace, I naturally reached for it.
I decided to use Naturals White as my base and then added a layer of Night of Navy. Then I added a rectangle of Silver Foil and, partily on top of that, added a banner cut from the Marina Mist starry print from the Santa & Co. Designer Series paper.
I chose not to use the entire image from the Gentle Peace stamp, but, instead, cut the rectangular portion of it, leaving the stained glass window around the figures but eliminating the arch. Using only the Night of Navy, Marina Mist, and Silver to colour my image was a challenge, but that's what it's all about. I like the way it turned out---very minimalistic. Then I stamped a simple sentiment from the hostess Good Greetings stamp set: "believe" onto a piece of Night of Navy using Versamark and heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder. I cut that out using my 1 1/4" circle punch and then cut a backing for it out of Silver Foil using my 1 3/8" circle punch.
