COLOUR CREATE CHALLENGE # 32

Good morning everyone;

It's time for the Colour Create Challenge. This challenge is brought to us by the lovely Mina and she has chosen "Red, Green and White" with the extra option of Christmas.



Here is a little inspiration to get you started.
We have a fabulous sponsor for this
challenge....Simon Says Stamp!!




I decide to go with a project this week after I was totally inspired by my very sweet friend and blogging buddy, Curt. I just loved the Luminaria that he made, so here is my take on it.



I embossed the images with black and I painted Popcorn with H2O's Icicle. The shading on him and all the other images were painted with Tombows. I painted and cut out the poinsettia twice more and layered them. I used the wax paper resist technique on the vellum and brayered over it with white Versa magic ink.



I used border stickers that I coloured red with my Identa pens and the sentiments are also stickers that were coloured black. The top of the Luminaria was punched with my MS border punch. I also added some stickles to the flower centers.

I hope you like it. It really was fun to make so if any of you would like to give it a go, here is the link to the instructions.

Now be sure to stop by the Colour Create Challenge blog as the Design Team have some gorgeous creations to share with you.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous day...
