GET "KRAFTY" WITH A NEW COLORWAY!

Hi. Pam here this week as Lynell is visiting family. So, I had the fun of creating two things with Wendy's suggested colorway of kraft, red, and ivory. I love this color combo, especially since I'm kind of on a kraft kick right now. For this card I used the newly released "Holiday Greetings" stencil. The ivory panel was run through my embossing machine with the stencil  (remember to spritz the back of the panel with rubbing alcohol for a deeper emboss). Then I replaced the stencil over the embossed areas and rouged gold ink from the Splendor Antique pad over the leaves. Now, see all the tiny red berries? Since I did NOT want to mask off every leaf with tape, I used the uber-perfect Picasso tool to rouge red just in the areas that I wanted. This tool looks odd, but has several areas that are perfect to focus on one area while masking off the others. I highly recommend it! I heat set the ink slightly before applying tiny drops of Copic White ink with the tip of a small stylus tool on the berries and snowy lines on the sentiment. Since my red ended up slightly brick colored, I chose this ribbon with more of a red-brown cast. Actually, this card ends up being quite simple to do, and is easily do-able in multiples for the holidays. Don't you want to know what the Dream Team has come up with for this colorway challenge? I know I do! The list is at right. When you are finished being inspired by them, be sure to link your own creation at the bottom of this post. We'd love to show off YOUR designs as well!

Lovely Christmas card, Pam. Those little white dots on the berries really make then stand out.

Great card Pam!!! So many superfine details. It's those little things that make a designer's work so distinctive. Each member of this team is so unique. Thanks for posting for me on this one.

Great card. Actually my first thought was "I can't believe she masked off all those leaves!" It definately looked like red paste to me.
