Blue and Orange ...

 Now this is an interesting colour combination for me and one that I don't think I've ever considered for a Christmas card!!  I was inspired to try this combination by the current challenge at Color Hues: the color card challenge:  I was stuck for ideas especially as I need to concentrate on Christmas cards so just 'went with the flow' ... I cannot decide whether I like the end result or not but here it is:

I heat embossed a background stamp before colouring with a water colour wash using distress inks and oxides.  The geometric stag was also created in the same way before fussy cutting it out.  The blue panel is flat to the card base and the stag is adhered with foam tape to add dimenson.

I used:

STAMPlorations - Yuletide Deer
Tim Holtz - Stripes and Holiday Type
WOW Clear Embossing Powder
Distress Inks and Oxides - Spiced Marmalade and Salty Ocean
UNIKO - Simply Said II

These are the challenge details:

Keep creating ..
