It’s the first Thursday of November and time for another Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge! For today’s challenge, Lori chose this perfume gift set from Pacifica Perfume.

I have to admit, I was really stumped by this one at first. Lori wanted to take a break from fall and Christmas colors, but these colors really stopped me cold. I looked through my dp, through wrapping paper even through some old wallpaper books. I couldn’t come up with these colors. Finally, I decided to just go with a few of the colors.  I just ignored the blue and used the pinks, purples and a little vanilla. The whole picture had a sort of mid eastern look to me and the first thing I thought of was the City of David set from Flourishes.
DDIC15 We 3 Kings 3798a2

While these may not be traditional Christmas colors,  I think they work well with this terrific Christmas scene.

The City of David was stamped first w/ the grape ink onto a large vanilla Spellbinders oval. I overstamped it w/ the amethyst ink and added a little color to the buildings w/ markers and a blender pen. After masking the image, I sponged on some pigment inks starting w/ parchment near the buildings, dusty rose and finally eggplant.  It’s attached to a vanilla layer that was edged w/ markers and the greeting stamped in the lower right corner.

I stamped and colored the Wise Men the same way and cut them out (except at the bottom). The background layer was stamped w/ a clear acrylic block stamp from the Michael’s $ bin and the amethyst ink. I added some foam tape for a little dimension and attached all my layers.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Please be sure to visit all the Divas and we’d love for you to join our challenge. Please use DDIC in your keywords if you upload to Splitcoast.
