A colour challenge at Crafty Ann's

The new challenge at Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog is a colour challenge set by my lovely teamie Kym who has chosen the colour combo of Silver, Gold and White. Well this one really taxed my poor overworked brain cell lol but I decided to start this years Christmas cards using Crafty Ann's gorgeous delicate Holly Wreath (you can find it here in Crafty Ann's store)

I made the background using gold and silver Eco green paints just splodged on to the card and brushed around randomly, when this was dry I added loads of gorgeous silver and gold firework ink for lots of shimmer. The corners and sentiments are stamps from Elusive Images.

I printed Crafty Ann's beautiful Holly Wreath on some acetate and glittered the back using my quickie glue pen and silver, gold and white ultrafine glitter. I made a frame from my old Stamp'n'around frame stamp and then layered the image on some white pearl card with shaker tape and added a bow to finish off.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafty Creations: Heat it up (heat embossing)
Die cut dreams: Use a digi stamp and rubber stamp together
Fab'n'Funky : Use a digi
My time to craft challenge: Emboss, emboss, emboss
One stitch at a Time: As you like it (+Christmas Club)
The Shabby Tea Room: Winter Wonderland

I hope you're going to join us for our colour challenge this time around, if you need some more ideas make sure you have a wander around the rest of the DTs blogs as they have some amazing ideas for you
