Colours at VSC !

It's time for the next challenge at the Vintage Stamping Challenge and this time we're looking for some colour ! In particular the colours we would like to see are red, green, blue or purple. Now if you can combine all of  these colours in your work that's great but we're just as happy to see one of them. Which is a good job as I was having a blue phase when I made my card !

I thought this little guy was quite sweet on his sledge and he gave me the impression he was whizzing down a snowy slope which gave me the idea of creating some snowy hills in the background. I used a torn piece of paper and a piece of artist's sponge then sponged Iced Spruce and Salty Ocean DI over the edge of the paper. The little snowflakes are also stamped with Salty Ocean DI. I used the advert stamp from Tim Holtz's Mini Holidays set and did some second generation stamping on some white card and stamped the word Postcard from the same set with Cobalt Archival ink. I covered some white card with Tim Holtz Tissue Wrap and then used the Doily die and blended some DI over it. For the background I used a stencil and Iced Spruce and Salty Ocean DI again. I also stamped some snowflakes from the Mini Holidays stamp set using Cobalt Archival ink and stamped some white dots using white acrylic paint and a Wendy Vecchi stamp.

The main image is a Flonz stamp and I've painted him using Distress Markers. The sentiment is from an Artistic Outpost set and is cut out using the Movers & Shapers labels die. I dyed some seam binding with Faded Denim Distress Stains and I also dyed the hemp I used to tie the bow and added some little crystal beads.

I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge and remember there is the $20 voucher up for grabs to spend in the Flonzcraft online store for the winner.
