Colour Challenge at Chocolate Baroque

Good morning my lovelies, today is my turn to share my inspiration project for our colour challenge at Chocolate Baroque Challenge and this time around we've got this gorgeous colour palette to work with

I started by picking out distress inks to match the challenge colours, I used Evergreen Bough, Gathered twigs, Picked Raspberry and Shaded Lilac. In the photo it looks quite bluey but my camera has given up the ghost so I'm having to use my phone

I began by splodging my distress inks on to my nonstick craft sheet, misted them with water and then swooshed some white card through the inky puddles. I dried the card off and repeated the process before splashing with some water and mopping up with kitchen roll. I cut a square of the inky background and stamped with the gorgeous snowflakes from A Child is Born and embossed with sparkly white WOW Embossing powder, for some extra bling I added gems to the snowflakes.

I used a scrap of the background I'd made to die cut a bauble with a spellbinders die and stamped the 'Christmas Magic' sentiment , again embossing the sentiment.  I layered the bauble up on glitter card and did the same with the background, adding a few more gems. a little charm and a seam binding bow.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafty Cardmakers: distress it
Crafty Sentiments: use die cuts
Everybody Art: Snowflakes
Ooh La La: Christmas
Stamping Sensations: Simply Christmas
