October Papertrey Blog hop - Holiday Wishes

This month's blog hop at Papertrey Ink offered up inspiration pictures with non traditional colour combinations.  I love these colours together:
I decided to make a holiday card with Little Bitty Bird which is such a cute set!  I stamped the tree in PTI VIntage Cream ink.  I covered a bird die cut with Martha Stewart vintage glitter and stamped some black legs before adhering it with some foam dots.  I matted this and added a selectively inked Think Big sentiment using Fresh! Steel Blue and Slate inks.
I took a larger piece of Aqua Mist and then adhered it to my Rustic White card base and ran the whole thing through with the Woodgrain impression plate after selectively inking in Fresh! Steel Blue and Chocolate.
 Lots of layers and bling ...

This is a great combo of cool colours for the holidays ...


Supplies:
Paper: PTI Soft Stone, Smokey Shadow
Ink: PTI Vintage Cream, Fresh! Steel Blue and Slate
Misc: foam dots, Martha Stewart vintage glitter (blue topaz), PTI Little Bitty Bird die, PTI Woodgrain impression plate

This is beautiful. Love the effect of dry embossing the two colors together. It looks like one.
