Color My World

It may be Black Friday today, but Bloggers Challenge is one of color. We are challenged to use our favorite colors. I love trying all kinds of color combinations and my favorites often depend on my mood or the season. However, I do know that I tend to lean towards the color teal and love it combined with green. Once that was decided, I needed a great image. Since I spent the last two days preparing for and celebrating Thanksgiving, I got a little behind. I knew I had to do something somewhat quick. This beautiful stamp from Artistic Outpost Sleigh Ride was the answer. The green background paper was just waiting for a great stamp, so I was set. The paper has a texture like canvas, so it was a little tricky to stamp on. I used Versamark to stamp and the beautiful Carnival embossing powder from PK Glitz. The sentiment is from Club Scrap. To finish off the image panel I used Viva Decor Iced White to create snow on the tree. By the way I learned that you can help dry Viva Decor paint with a heat tool. I was careful, but it worked. I could scan my card without leaving paint spots on the scanner.
Hope you enjoy looking at what the others have done. We'd love to have you join us. Just link your entry below.
