Wednesday Words

Today I'm sharing a card I created for the CAS Christmas Challenge.

I'm always inspired by the blues from the challenge badge and that's where my card began.

I chose two colours of brusho - turquoise and ultra marine - sprinkled them onto water colour card and then sprayed water over. I used a tissue to blot the brusho inks to reduce the intensity of the colour a little. I think ultra marine is one of my favourite brusho colours because of the all the purples that it contains.

I chose the Uniko Christmas POP tree as it contained the word peace and then added ON EARTH to finish off the traditional phrase. Love the combo of the modern tree with the traditional greeting!

Stamps: Uniko, Christmas POP, PF Poinsettia
Inks: Brusho, turquoise & ultra marine; Verasfine Clair, nocturne

It's been lovely to have you visit my blog today, thanks so much for your time.

And keep crafting!
