InStyle Stamps Colour Challenge: Christmas Tree Chloe

Hi All,

It has been such a busy week!  Phew...well, it's time again for another Colour Challenge with the InStyle Stamps blog!  This time, Taylor chose our colour inspiration from a piece of Christmas wrapping paper she found at Olive Paper.  Isn't it yummy???

I went with an olive green and yellow theme from this lovely piece!
I chose this adorable Chloe image from ISS, which will be released by the 16th of this month - you should see all of the mouth-watering images that Virginia is releasing by that date!

I started with a Crushed Curry base.  The DSP I used is called Dashing (retired SU), and it was matted with a Basic Black piece.  On top of that, I added a border of Kiwi Kiss CS and Basic Black CS, both punch with my tree edge punch from EK Success.  I though it made an interesting and cute border!  The sentiment at the bottom is an SU rub-on, and it was punched out on Basic Black CS using my Word Window Punch.  I also punched some Fern Branches out of Crushed Curry and Kiwi Kiss CS with my Martha Stewart punch, and attached them with my 2-Way Glue Pen. 

I printed Chloe onto PTI White CS, coloured her with Copics, and cut her out with rectangle Nesties, as well as a Basic Black mat.  I added some sponging to her panel with Kiwi Kiss ink.  I used my Mat Pack and paper piercer to make holes around that rectangle panel at the top, then made some faux stitching with my White Gel pen.

Make sure to head over to the ISS Blog to enter your creation for this awesome colour challenge, and try to win yourself some free digis! 

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
