JDE Color Challenge Time

Hi, Friends,

It's time for a color challenge at Jackson's Digital Expressions. Our colors are red, black and white, and I love them! Bugaboo is our sponsor.  I fell in love with Mr. and Mrs. Claus - they are an adorable couple. I decided NOT to color the image - I wanted to try something new. I think it turned out quite nice. Everything is from my stash. I stamped small snow flakes on the black paper and used a Sizzix embossing folder for the background.  I embossed the sentiment - haven't used embossing powder in quite some time. I think I'll make more of these cards to send to friends/family. Visit JDE to see last week's winners and the DT inspiration for this challenge. I entered the following challenges:  Clearly I Stamp (CAS); Tammy's Scrapin Corner (Let it Snow); Mema's Crafts (Anything Goes Winter/Holiday theme optional); and Addicted to CAS (code SNOW).

Supplies:  Cardstock my stash; Sizzix Dot Embossing Folder; Ink: CTMH White Daisy and Black, Versamark Water Mark; Stampendous Detail Black Embossing Powder; Stamps:  CTMH Holiday Magic and Glory to God.

CAS Challenge at Jackson's Digital Expressions

Hi, Everyone!  I have a card for the new CAS Challenge at JDE using patterned paper.  I've used Robert's image Finishing Touch.  I did my best to create a bit of shadow on the snowman - how do you think I did?

The cardstock and the two DPs are from my stash. I inked the edges of the DP and my image in Memento Danube Blue ink.  I used watercolor pencils for the image. The sentiment is from Close to My Heart - Holiday Trinkets (retired, I think).  I stamped the sentiment in my new ink purchase - Pearlescent Sky Blue by Tsukineko.  (Last weekend I used a 50% coupon from Michaels.)

As always, go to the site to see what the rest of the DT has created and to see who won last week's challenge. Our sponsor is Bugaboo.

I'm entering my card in the following challenges:  Cards by Lady Anne (Anything Goes), Crafty Bloggers Network (Christmas Anything Goes), The Paper Girls (Christmas or Winter) and Addicted to CAS (code word SNOW).

By the way, I hope everyone has a nice and Happy Thanksgiving!!!
