June CCAYR Christmas Belles DT post---Non-traditonal colors

Hello fellow bloggers!  Happy Friday!  It's June 15th, which means it's time for another reminder post on the CCAYR blog.  The Christmas Belles have created some lovely cards for this month's theme of non-traditional colors.  Here is what I have done:

I was struggling trying to come up with colors to use for my card this month, but then I was watching a YouTube video from Cathy Zielske titled "Love You Bouquet"and inspiration struck.  I loved the colors she used so much, and I thought they would be perfect!  I started by coloring this Paper Nest Dolls Snow Angel image that I think was a freebie in an online magazine.  The background was one that I had sitting on my desk, still in the embossing folder (Sizzix), that I was going to use for some kind of technique.  So, I sponged Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide inks on the panel, then sprayed on some water and dabbed it off for that popular distressed look.  I decided that the green would be best used as an accent color, so I created a scalloped circle for behind the image die cut circle, and stamped my sentiment on a piece of green as well.


12 Months of Christmas Link Up #42:  ATG or optional "Make It Masculine" theme
The Outlawz Monday Greetings:  Use at least one die cut (Spellbinders)
Crafty Gals #167:  Summer Colors (my colors are summery, just not my theme!)

Well, that's all for me!  Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you all enjoy the weekend!

God Bless!
