Simply Create Too DT card #98 Give Thanks

I'm very lucky to be a Simply Create Too Design Team member! Our challenge this week is #98 Give Thanks and here is my card. For this card I thought I'd try something new so I used Brusho crystal colour paints. They are a high pigment powder which are activated when water is added. I simply sprinkled some colours down and sprayed with water until the ink had spread over the page. After leaving it to dry this was the effect and I LOVE it! The photo does not do the colours justice as they are really vibrant. I didn't want to make this card to fussy so I added a simple butterfly digi and a strip sentiment to finish the card.

Christmas has started!

I created these two very different 5x5 cards with the same two dies from Britannia Dies. Skyline & Christmas Flight. I love how different they look.

For the gold card I cut out Christmas Flight from the patterned paper and then the skyline from black card stock for a silhouette effect. I mounted the skyline on foam pads for dimension.

For the red card I cut both dies from the patterned paper and mounted it onto red glittered card stock. I added a hand tied ribbon for extra Christmas glamour. 

Paper - First Edition - Gilded Winter
Embellishments - red ribbon from Hobby Craft
