Hey there, friends! Are you ready for another fun color challenge at ColourQ? Check out this festive photo for inspiration:
What a collection of cheerful, bright colors! Because I made a Christmas card, I'll also be sharing it over at The Paper Players, where the challenge is to share a Christmas card or project.
I decided to do something fun and cute using a darling stamp I picked up in the $1 bin at Michaels a while back. It's this sweet little car carrying a tree on the roof. I colored it with my Prismas, then added some swirls from PTI's Fancy Flourishes to add a sense of movement. Then I added a yellow rhinestone to the top of the tree. Okay, I know you wouldn't put the star on the tree before you strapped it to the top of your car, but it just looks so cute, don't you think? Some uneven stitching around the edges and a real jingle bell tied with baker's twine finish it off.
(Just a tip: I added a drop of Ranger's Glossy Accents behind the knot of the baker's twine to hold the bell in place, otherwise the weight would cause it to sag when the card is standing up.)
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Pure Poppy, white), Stampin' Up! (Tempting Turquoise)
Stamps: Studio G (car), Papertrey Ink (Fancy Flourishes, Signature Christmas)
Ink: Indadinkadoo (Black), Clearsnap (Cranberry)
Accessories: The Twinery (baker's twine), Me & My Big Ideas (rhinestone), thread, bell
Coloring medium: Prismacolor Premier pencils
I just had to stamp the car again on the inside.
What will you create with this week's colors? You certainly don't have to make a holiday card, and there are so many fun options with this bright palette. Be sure to check out the rest of the Royal Court DT for more inspiration!
Thanks for spending a few minutes of your day with me! Have a great day!
