Color Cue {10}

Monday, November 15, 2010

Welcome to Wplus9 Design's Color Cue {10}.  This month, Dawn let each of us designers pick our own color palettes.  So fun!  Here's mine...
and here's the card that inspired it.
I started, this card, by stamping the two, outside, ornament images, in Moonlight White ink, on the Crumb Cake, cardstock, card face, whose bottom corners had been rounded.  I, then, stamped the same, ornament image, in Basic Black ink, on a piece of Real Red cardstock; paper-pieced all the patterned papers over its top; hand cut it out; laid it in place, flat to the card face; and stamped all three, ornament strings in Basic Black ink, before adhering the prepped ornament to the card face with dimensionals.
The stamped, in Basic Black ink, "WISHING YOU A SEASON FULL OF laughter AND joy, warmth AND love" sentiment...
and a few, aqua gemstones, complete the look.
Love to have you all join me!  But don't forget to run check out all the other design team members' inspirational, color combos, too.  Pick one, or pick them all!  You have until Tuesday, December 7th, at 10:59 pm EST, to play along with us.  Looking forward to seeing all of your fantastic creations!

This is pure holiday magic on EVERY level! The shear beauty of your flawlessly paper pieced ornament against the simple beauty of the stamp-only background is positively radiant! Reminds me of the simply joy of staring up under the Christmas tree at the blinking sparkle, as a kid... *swoon!* Such lovely work - SUCH a great palette! Yeahooooooo!
