CTC#156 Christmas Twist on any item

Welcome back for another week at CTC where we are giving a Christmas twist to a chosen project, so I have chosen a card from page 35 which has a simple design and some self stamping. At this time of year simple is best!

I also like that it has a simple colours scheme. Pool Party, Emerald Envy, white and linen thread with a little bit of silver embossing. Both the pool party cards appealed to me.

The second option looks at the card lower left, and while mine is still landscape rather that portrait I added the extra elements behind the focal point, and stamped the sentiment on the pool party card rather than the white.

I loved using the alcohol blend pens - the new Stampin Blends in the light shade of Pool Party for the outline around the embossed silver lightbulb. It was so easy and quick. The tree has been painted with the aqua painter.
The inside just has part of the lightbulb stamped in emerald in the lower corner. Quick and easy.

 I hope your Christmas creativity is on track, but if you are stuck for a design this one works really well if you are stuck for time.

Don't forget wee'd love to see what you create using the same inspiration- and then post a photo of your item on our Facebook page

Next on the hop this week is Angela

 and Before me this week is Fi

I hope you have a creative week and remember, 
"don't just post online,
 post something pretty!"

cheers, Liz
