Moving Along With The Times...Christmas Climate...


Hey,

It is time for the Moving Along With The Times challenge - this week Team B are up and Red is our hostess with Christmas Climate.

Red wants us to reflect the kind of Christmas Climate we have - wherever we are and she is offering the lucky winner a prize - you get the stamp shown here on Red's card - awesome!



I am in NYC, so it's pretty darn cold here...but I love being somewhere warm at Christmas, so themed my card around this idea.

I found a great digital stamp that totally captured the warm feeling I wanted.

I coloured it using an aquabrush and gelatos. I really wanted the colours to be a bit muted.
For a bit of fun, I decided to turn it into a shaker card and went with a Hexagon window (dies courtesy of JT), to jazz it up a bit, I added some fun chevron borders. Finally I stamped the sentiment at the bottom.

It's a little bit off the wall, but I kinda like it..and I have just the recipient in mind...

So time for you to hop on over to MAWTT and be inspired by the rest of the team's fab creations and join in the fun yourself.
