52 CCT Colour Challenge


Our colour challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week is to use purple and green. Such a great colour combo!


I have gone with two shades of both colours here - Perfect Plum and Blackberry Bliss combined with Pear Pizzazz and Mossy Meadow. I used the 'rock and roll' technique to ink the stamp - it's not a weird photo defect! The lovely tree stamp is from SU's Wonderland set.

I hope that you will join us in our colour challenge - we love seeing your inspirational cards. Have a great weekend, April x

P.S. I am squeezing my trees through the gates for Parsnip over at Pixie's Snippets Playground. That bear needs a tree to hide up after all the firework frivolity, as does poor Miss Di with her 'grout'.

  2. Hi April! This is just so elegant - and beautiful colours. I giggled about the rock and roll stamping technique - were you jiving round as you stamped? That's a beautiful stamp you used - I do so love that Wonderland set.

    Tee, hee - I can barely hobble to the loo here let alone jive! Parsnip is perched up on of the trees - he says it's a safe lookout post, aw :) Guess he hasn't noticed there's a little pile of twigs growing at the bottom of the tree. Toasted marshmallows might be on the menu later on it seems!

    Hugs
