For this challenge, I had my heart set on using an Altenew set called Poinsettia & Pine from 2015.
I started by stamping all the images in Memento Luxe Tuxedo Black and heat embossing with clear embossing powder. I tapped a bit of Fireworks! spray on my craft mat and did a bit of water coloring with the pretty sparkly sprays. I used Rhubarb Stalk, Bamboo Leaves, and Desert Sand. To change up the color at bit I added in some Northern Pine Memento Luxe ink to the green and Peanut Brittle into the Desert Sand, this a really great way to expand your color palate. A bit of shimmer vellum was pressure embossed with Cuttlebug Polka Dots backs the images. The spare piece that was trimmed off becomes strip to complete the sketch and add the sentiment. Olive Green Memento Luxe with iridescent embossing powder stamp the sentiment by The Stamps of Life to finish off the card.
Have some fun and join us at Retro Rubber with your own Christmas color project!
