CSAYL Challenge #15

This week the Design Team created a challenge using colors far from the  traditional Christmas colors we are used to.  You can check out the challenge particulars here and see the inspiration piece that Maria selected.

So, since the colors are primarily jewel-tones (turquoise, emerald, ruby, sapphire, peridot, etc.) I elected to do my background using the Mosaic technique.

Challenge #15

After piecing the background, I distressed using Ranger’s Tea Dye and then put it through the Cuttlebug using the snowflake folder.  The image is from the Sandi Gore Evans collection of Uptown Rubber Stamps The sentiment is from Stampendous and I used SU Pacific Point. I colored the image using SU markers.
