Keesh Colour Challenge #13

I've made 2 cards again. Was going to do as 2 separate posts but I've been called in to start back at work a night early :-( so will have to do one quick post now. This is a colour challenge, Chocolate Chip (CC), Not Quite Navy (NQN), Old Olive (OO) & Very Vanilla (VV).

I was going to use some DSP from the Ski Slope pack that had a lovely pattern in Choc Chip & Old Olive, but it had a white background, not a vanilla one. This had already started me thinking 'Christmas', so I continued with the theme. I used the gorgeous new set 'Snow Swirled' and stamped the swirly tree in Old Olive & Versamark. I stamped it onto VV then covered the image with heat & stick powder & Dazzling Diamonds. Love the glittery effect. I added NQN brads as I wasn't quite sure how else to incorporate the colour. I made a trunk or pot shape out of CC DSP (from the Ski Slope pack). I added small snowflakes in CC & mounted it onto CS. I had stamped a variety of the Snow Swirled snowflakes in OO onto Old Olive CS & added a smattering of Dazzling Diamonds.

Of course I had to have another play. Couldn't get this bird, from the Friends 24-7 set, out of my head after seeing Keesh stamp it last week in virtually the same colours, it just wanted to come & get inked (1st time). I cased the card from the IB&C, otherwise known as the main catty (p81). I also used the beautiful Friendly Words jumbo wheel and paper from the Bella Blue DSP set. The button is a cute flower from the latte set. It is quite self-explanatory. I was quite pleased with how it turned out.

Sorry I've raved, typing in a hurry. must go get some shut eye before work tonight. I'm such a sucker, can never say no! Not only was I not due to go back til tomorrow night, they've asked me to start at 7 tonight & do 2 hrs overtime. The things we do to look after our women & fellow staff!
Catch you soon,
Fi xox

Great cards, Fi - but, I especially love the Christmas tree, with it's NQN brads, and the dazzling diamonds - as Sarah-Jane says, it's stunning, and a great one to showcase with all those Chrissy cards to make. Hope you have a good shift, and sleep well tomorrow, Jo
