Yup - Its true. And in the past few days it seems everyone has been putting up posts on my facebook reminding me of the fact! It is quite scary actually - I have so much to do between now and then with finishing my degree so hopefully I can keep crafting enough to stave off any stresses.
Anyway the gals at Just Add Ink came up with another great colour challenge this week. The colours were Silver, Bermuda Bay and Basic Black - you can check out the design team entries here. I absolutely love the striking effect of these colours together.
As soon as I saw the challenge I had a vague concept in my mind. As you know I have been playing around with different card designs. This card originally started in my mind as a side step card, but evolved into a centre step card. I really love how it has turned out. My very favourite detail was the top layer of the Festive Flurry stamp set and matching framelit dies snowflake I made - which I stamped in the Bermuda Bay, used a versamark pen to highlight just the outside of the snowflake and then embossed using clear embossing powder and the superfine silver glitter.
The snowflake is popped up on dimensionals with each layer. Unfortunately I just couldn't get it photographed properly to show the depth without showing just how sparkly it is so you will just have to use your imagination.
Anyway - enjoy. As usual I love to receive your comments.
