Christmas Bridge cu 07968
Today’s Color Challenge (CC559) is rose red, garden green & honey gold w/ the dessert option of making it a Christmas card. I wasn’t sure these colors would work at all for a Christmas card, so I chose to use this beautiful new Bridge scene but make it snowy w/ sunset behind it & add a Christmas greeting.  Christmas Bridge 07967
I stamped it w/ Memento on a lt kraft card stock then colored it in using Prismacolor pencils. I also added some bright white highlights w/ a white gel pen then I stamped over it (it was still in my Misti) w/ Versafine to bring all the details back. Then I spritzed it w/ a spray I made using whitewash acrylic paint thinned w/ water (about a 3 to 1, water to paint, ratio). Just a note here…I’ve had this mix in a little mini mister for about a year & it still hasn’t clogged, so I’m happy w/ my self made snow spray. 

The frames were die cut using the new Double Stitched Rectangles & Rectangle dies & the largest is my favorite Flourished Star Pattern die. The greeting & green layer were die cut using the new Double Stitched Circle dies along w/ a small circle die (Spellbinders). 

Here’s a look at the inside. I used a little leftover green stitched frame & added a green Windowsill Candle die cut.
