Welcome to the Color Fusers Blog Hop and September 2019 Color Challenge!
For this months project, I wanted to create a Christmas card but I wasn’t quite sure I could do it with the colors for the September 2019 Color Challenge. The colors include Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy, Merry Merlot and one of the new 2019 – 2021 In Colors, Rococo Rose. As it turns out the Brightly Gleaming product suite includes two of the four colors so I thought I’d use one of the gorgeous specialty papers as a starting point.
So what I came up with is a bit of a non-traditional color scheme for Christmas but I actually love how it turned out!
How can you go wrong with this stunning paper and these beautiful ornament images?
I’ve heat embossed the ornaments with Copper embossing powder to coordinate with the stars in the designer paper.
Then I colored in each of the ornaments to provide some interest and dimension to these images. I also used some Wink of Stella at the top of the ornament as well.
The Brightly Gleaming product suite is in the NEW 2019 Holiday catalog that goes live in just a few days!
The Christmas Gleaming bundle (shown below) is part of this suite.
If you love this bundle you might also love the consumables in this product suite.
You can get a “taste” of each of these consumables when you purchase my “Taste of a Suite” product shares. A photo of this product share is shown below. It’s one of 8 unique shares that I’m offering now through 9/5/19.
