Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #234

This great sketch was quite easy to use, and I was keen to use up the leftovers from my card class today - christmas with the Festival of Trees Set. (more photos of those later)
 I have used one of my favourite colour combinations -
Soft Sky, Lost Lagoon and Kraft/ Crumb Cake.

The Festival of Trees image is heat embossed with Pool Party powder which tones so beautifully with the Lost Lagoon. Unfortunately I used up all my ribbon in the class but I have a great stash of crochet cotton in matching colours to most of my cardstock thanks to my good friend and colour expert Sloane at Needlework cottage.

One of the great products in the new Christmas Catalogue is the  Under the Tree Designer Series Paper. It has such  great weight and texture. .
After watching the video from SU on Stampin Connection I was keen to try the spritzing colour on the kraft side because the white printing allows you to use the emboss resist technique. It's beautiful.

 Perhaps I didn't use enough ink in my spritzer but I had much better success applying ink direct to the card with the ink pad. I LOVE the rich tones it gave me. Here are my comparison pieces and I have used a small strip of this in the card.
Spritz on the left, ink pad on the right.
Tried it with Hello Honey too  natural on the left, ink pad on right, cardstock colour behind.
- love this,  much richer IRL

There's the little strip, love it

Hope you try the technique with the DSP.
Thanks for looking, Liz
