This challenge is a photo inspiration challenge and is open from December 1-15. It is an Anything Goes so you can make a card, decoration or anything else that you might think of that is inspired by this photo.
I can just imagine the great dinner that will be part of this elaborate diner plate. The Holiday Season is a special time of year for everyone. No matter what your celebration is, it is time to reflect back on the past year and its challenges and achievements and to look ahead at what the following year may bring. It is also time to spend with those that you love and cherish and remember those no longer with us, that make this Holiday and special one.
I love the colours of this photo, but trying to guess just which colours I should use became a bit of an adventure. There were several attempts at getting just the right colours to accent the photo but I finally came up with Night of Navy and black with a touch of bling! I also kept within my House of Cards theme of Clean and Simple.
To start I cut out a mask from a Post-it and used that to create the shadowed area. Then with the Night of Navy I inked up the snowflake stamp and then with the Black I lightly "bammed" it. This allowed some of the areas to appear even darker with just a hint of black.
Once the outside was complete I stamped on the inside just in one corner to finish off the card.
A touch of bling was added to the centre of three snowflakes and then it was mounted onto accent DSP and then the card base.
Once I had the colours the rest came together rather quickly which was good because I needed to make 50 of these cards for friends and family!
