Color Inspired Greeting Card

Hello and welcome back! It is time for a new challenge at Incy Wincy Designs. For this challenge, the theme is Colour Palette Or Use Only Warm Colours. We have two sponsors for this challenge.

For my card, I opted to follow the challenge's colour palette as seen above. I colored the image with the first four colors on the palette. It is not the typical color of an elf but we can always go out of the norm. I colored the image with Prisma color pencils. I fussy cut the image leaving a small border around it. I added details to the image with metallic gel pens, glaze pen and shimmer brush.

I could not find a cardstock in my stash that matches the last two colors of the palette. So, I created my own by blending Tim Holtz Distress Inks on two separate Strathmore Bristol Paper cut at 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". I used blue hues on one (love that Blueprint Sketch), and blue-green hues on the other. I spritz Prima Color Bloom Teal Spray on the panel. I dried this panel with a heat gun. After which, I die cut this panel with Lawn Fawn Fancy Lattice Backdrop die. I adhered the blue panel to the back.

For the sentiment, I heat embossed this on vellum using Tim Holtz Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide and Judikins Iridescent Sparkle embossing powder. I adhered this on a white cardstock before fussy cutting it, leaving a small border around it. I stamped the sub-sentiment on a white cardstock using the same Tim Holtz ink. I die cut this into a strip using Avery Elle Simple Sentiments die. 

I adhered the vellum sentiment and sentiment strip to the lattice panel. I created a ground for the image with a left-over sand embossed cardstock and adhered this to the panel. I adhered the digital image with foam adhesive. Using the same lattice die, I die cut scraps of holographic cardstock. I pieced in the diamond shaped die cuts to the teal lattice backdrop for some sparkle.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope to see your creations in the challenge blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
