50 Euro Worth of Stamps Challenge

Heyyy, good people! The December challenge over at the Rubber Dance blog is one you really don't want to miss. The lucky random winner will get a 50 Euro voucher to spend in the Rubber Dance web shop, and the DT Fave pick will get €25!!

I know many of you are busy right now, but the challenge is quite easy: Either use the challenge colours, OR enter any make with glitter.

I have combined the colours and a bit of glitter on my reminder card:

 I made the background mixing three colours of Distress Oxides. For the light blue, I mixed a couple of drops of blue reinker into the texture paste. I picked a Christmassy patterned stencil (Tim Holtz) to go with the stamped tulips, which was a Christmas flower here in Norway - I don't know if that's common all over the world, but we love tulips this time of year - usually white or red, but I love tutti-frutti :-)

I stamped the tulip randomly on two backgrounds and cut them out. 
Same with the stems and leaves - all stamps from the Rubber Dance set Crazy Flowers #1.

I arranged the cut out images over my background till I liked it, took a photo for reference and glued them all down. Quick and easy Christmas card, if somewhat unusual perhaps.

The challenge runs till 31st of December, so there's plenty of time still.

 Thanks for looking!

    1. Thank you, Donna! ♥ We also have poinsettias and amaryllis for Christmas, the tulips are just cut flowers (bouqet) that they import this time of year as well. xx


I guess it's not common that people go back to see if they were thanked for their comments, so I will say it now: THANK YOU so much for taking the time to leave a comment! ♥
