Hi friends! Sorry for the late post for this week's Curtain Call Color Challenge, but I've had Blogger issues this morning. I think they're solved for the moment, so on to the challenge!
Stacey has me feeling festive this week with a seasonal color combo with a twist, adding Basic Gray to the standard red, green, and white. I also used this week's CASE Study Challenge as inspiration, which is a vintage beauty by Nina Brackett.
I stamped the snowflakes (from SU's Northern Hearts) in Versamark, then heat embossed with clear powder. The tree was die cut, trimmed, then embossed with a Sizzix folder. I thought the holly berries in the embossed design would be fun highlighted with red Stickles, but I'm not sure about the result. I think it's because they aren't evenly distributed over the tree. I added the buttons to try to balance it out a bit.
Sorry for the lack of photos today, but my camera is still having problems. It took numerous tries to get this one photo somewhat in focus. Hmmm....I think I may have to revise my Christmas wish list.
