Purple and green is this weeks colour combination over at Something Completely Different. Not to everyone's taste but they are 2 colours I love.
As I haven't started any Christmas cards yet!!! I thought this may be an opportunity to make the first one.
I cut 2 strips of patterned paper - the green is by Creative Imaginations and the lighter purple is from some papers given to me. The purple snowflake was saved from a previous Xmas card coloured with V09 Copic and stuck down with glossy accents together with the strips of lilac beading. The green swirls are from the same stock as the green paper. I stamped the words using peeled paint DI and matted it onto matching lilac paper before using 3D foam to add depth. Finally, I 'splodged' a lot of glossy accents in the bottom corner and added seed and bugle beads.
I struggled a bit to get going with this card, but after having trapped my mojo, finally succeeded.
