Merry Monday's Challenge #97 -- Aqua, White & Sliver Christmas
What an honor it is to be a guest designer for Merry Monday's Challenge #97. This week's challenge is to use Aqua, Silver and White in your card.
After mulling over "so is aqua more blue or more green" and asking for a few opinions and researching online...I concluded it's more blue than green. So off to my local scrapbooking store to search for aqua paper and coordinating designer paper, too. Well, I did find aqua card stock, but not any coordinating designer paper. I have never left that store feeling defeated. It's my happy place to go, besides stamp stores!
So I came home and went through my designer paper stash again and came across a white and silver dp by TPC Studio called "Winter White's A Little Snow" and a Copics marker #BG01 (Aqua blue) and colored over the dp paper and low and behold, I have my coordinating dp! Happy again. So here's my card.
I started out with the aqua cs and then used the Copics (BG01) colored Winter White's A Little Snow dp paper and then mounted a matte silver. I stamped the fir tree from SU's "Lovely as a Tree" stamp set in Versa Mark and embossed it with a silver-white glitter embossing powder that I mixed together a few years back on Gina K white cs and mounted it on a piece of aqua cs and mounted it to the card. I die cut out the Merry (Penny Black's "Love & Joy" die cuts) in Aqua cs to finish off the card.
I hope you get a chance to play along with MM's Challenge this week and check the rest of the Design Team's cards for inspiration. They are all very beautiful! Thanks again MM design team choosing me as a guest designer this week!
Thank you for stopping by.
