COLOUR CREATE CHALLENGE #31








Good morning everyone

It's time again for the Colour Create Challenge. It seems like these 2 weeks just flew by.



The colours this week are Blue, Silver and White and they were chosen by me!! The extra options are winter and glitter.
Here is a little inspiration to get you started.
The sponsor this week is Handy Hippo.

I always like to get a few Pergamano cards done for Christmas for those special people on my list and this is my first one so far.



For my card I used a couple of different patterns. That's the great thing about Pergamano...you can trace or draw anything you like, or just add bits and pieces of all different patterns.

I traced the patterns onto Parchment paper with a mapping pen and white Tinta ink. I embossed parts of the pattern with an embossing tool. I used my one needle tool to stipple some sections and the parts that are cut out I used a 2 needle tool and then cut them out with my fancy little Pergamano scissors. When everything was finished I secured a piece of blue vellum as a liner and used my 2 needle split tool around the edges of the card. I added some silver stickles too.
I hope you like it.

Be sure to stop by the Colour Create blog, my teamies have created the most gorgeous cards for you this week. You are going to love them!!
I hope you will get a chance to play along with us....

Have a fabulous day
Thanks so much for stopping by.....

Hi Karen! Your card is breathtaking, you really knocked my socks off with this one :), I love Pergamano work it's so pretty and elegant and I know how much time and effort goes into making even a small piece as I tried it once with a friend's tools, anyway it's absolutely divine.
