INKSPIRATIONS COLOUR CHALLENGE #13







Well hello again!!
By the time you have finished reading this post I should have arrived in Thames, which is in the Coromandel, and hopefully Sean and I are still talking to each other!! hehe
Okay maybe I get a little car sick and border line paranoia, as I don't like heights and winding roads and well traveling full stop! And my three little punks who sit at the back keep reminding me how high Mount Messenger is, and I start ranting words like  SLOW DOWN and OHH MY GOD and well....... the fighting begins,hehe all the way till arrival.
Which by the way is about 5 hours!
Anyway onto the exciting stuff! Keesh has whipped up a awesome colour combo for us this week!
I honestly think I must work better under pressure because this little bundle came together in no time, and I have had literally NO TIME!!
I love my new stamp set "Winter Post" I wasn't completely sold on the two ice skaters in this set ( I so love the reindeer and snowflake) but inked it up anyway.
To achieve the faded snowflake background on my main stamped image, I stamped the snow flake in Versamark and applied chocolate chip chalk very softly to it.

Make sure you go check out the amazing design team....
Thanks for looking
Take care
Amy

I love how you have made this gorgeous Christmas card, its just so pretty.I think you did a great job with the skaters,and that little bit of glitter really adds to the wintery feel. Hope you have enjoyed an uneventful journey and reached your destination safe and sound.(I completely understand your torment...I don't like heights either) Sally :)

Hi, Amy, I do hope that you have survived the travel - brings back "happy" memories from 20 years ago, when we travelled with our T'riffic Trio, usually most holidays to grandparents that lived between 4 and 9 hours away. Can't say that I ever looked forward to that. Never mind - we did all survive. Congrats on the card - it is great, and does suit the masculine gender. Enjoy the break, Jo

I really love the paper piecing on the two skaters, and the little bit of bling on their scarves/mittens. And I must remember your faded snowflake technique, it's really cool!!!
