We have a lovely surprise for you today with Inkspirational Challenge #70! Our challenge was chosen by our DT member Kim and she, and our DT member Sandie have put up a prize for the randomly drawn entry that has used the optional twist, which is: Christmas card/project/tag with no red or green.
Today, we're joined by the fabulously talented Janet, who has designed an incredibly stunning Christmas card featuring the optional twist. The DT also has a set of cards to spark your inspiration:
I got a wee bit carried away (as always) with the optional twist and with dabbling with some very new to me techniques.
My first card is totally inspired by Jennifer McGuire. Recipe: texture paste, distress inks (only three..*whew*), perfect pearls for shimmer, embossed sentiment. Seriously, if I can do this, so can YOU! Get this stencil and emboss/ink away. The ones I 'practiced' with in traditional colours...oh my! I'll share those soon.
I also appear to have a 'circle' thing going on...here's two. Recipe: embossed stars, sponged background (more blue in real life..), a sweet image, simple sentiment, a snowflake cut from glitter paper and no red or green. Sweet!
Now for the important info: Prize details:...
