Untraditional Christmas Colors

torsdag 6 september 2012

Hello dear friends!
Yes, this Christmas card has a bit odd colors, but this time of year when there is still a long way to Christmas, I like to do these kinds of cards. Later, when we approach Christmas, Christmas cards also tend to become super duper traditional and full of glitter.
To get some Christmas spirit over this card, I added just a bit of glitter, and then it's Christmas like at once. Or what do you think ... no glitter, no Christmas?
I started with the resist canvas and sprayed it with a couple of blue sprays that I had.
The angels I have cut out from a Crafty Individuals paper sheet , and over them I added some Tim Holtz chitchat words.
 I found the little baby jesus on a piece of paper from Melissa Frances, and the other papers are from Prima's Almanac Collection. The embellishments were found in my stash.

I forgot to mention that I've been playing around with the sketch at Sketchy Colors this time.
Thank you for passing by, have a great day!
Hugs, Birgit

Dette var et veldig fint og annerledes julekort. Elsker vintage-stilen du har lekt med her, fra første til siste side. Flott!

It's perfectly fine with resist canvas! I only wanted to see the resist technique somehow and somewhere on a project. :) Your Christmas card is just precious. The baby Jesus and the singing (winged) angels are superb. Oh and of course the immediate holiday pinache of glitter that rings in Christmas!
The untraditional colors are very eye grabbing. It's beautiful through and through.

Thank you so much for sharing your creativity with us at Our Creative Corner. Best of luck and we'd love to have you visit again next week!
