This week’s challenge at CAS Colors and Sketches is to take any of the colour challenges of the year and make it Christmassy.
I chose Challenge #118 which is to use all greens. Here’s the banner:
I stamped the image from Lighthearted Leaves in the archival basic black and coloured it in with a variety of markers – mossy meadow, pear pizzazz, old olive, wild wasabi and even a touch of always artichoke. I found, though, that the always artichoke was a bit close to mossy meadow and stopped using that one. I then got out the white chalk marker and added a few lines to give a softer effect. The sentiment comes from the latest Paper Pumpkin kit – Mistletoe and Holly and is stamped in mossy meadow. I put the whisper white piece straight onto a mossy meadow card base but now, looking at the card, I think that a skinny black mat may have improved the card.
