I am hosting this week so I have chosen the theme of 'Opposites Attract' The challenge to produce a project using two colours from opposing sides of the colour wheel
Our fabulous sponsors this week are
Here is the card I made using Stamp Art Smoochy Bears and taking my colours as Red and Green
I coloured my image using promarkers
Sandstone, Caramel and Cocoa for the bears
Poppy and Berry for the red outfit
Grass and Evergreen for the Green Outfit.
Once coloured I added a mixture of polar white flowersoft and an iridescent glitter flake that was a free gift with a magazine, I mixed small amounts of the two together in a box before using - it was a bit of an experiment on my part but I am happy with the shimmer effect it gives.
I used a lovely rich green centura pearl card stock and to give contrast a very matt red textured card stock from Papermania to do the matting and layering. The image was fussy cut and placed on a white label cut using a nesting labels die from Spellbinders.
Finally the sentiment and the sprig of mistletoe were cut using Tattered Lace Dies and the finishing touches were the pearls which were added using cosmic shimmer white pearlescent PVA.
I am entering the card into the following challenges
