Christmas Jewels


I have just found time to make a quick card to play along with this week's Less Is More challenge which is to use jewel colours on our creations.  Given I am on a mission to make as many Christmas cards as I can in good time this year I decided to use the lovely Christmas ornaments from Hero Arts:

 I watercoloured the ornaments with the Zig real colour markers and used Wink of Stella to add some shimmer that you can't see!  The sentiment is also from Hero Arts and includes the lovely merry die.

I hope that the greens, pinks and purples have captured the right jewel tones!

I will also link up at Simon's Wednesday challenge to create a clean and simple Christmas card and at Virginia's View to use colouring on our designs.

I should be studying so better get back to my books - thanks for stopping by though!

  4. I love how crisp and clean this is, Sarah. These colours certainly work as jewel tones to me, and I love the big 'merry'.
