Santa Christmas Card using #onelittletag colour challenge

Hello my friends!  As some of you may now from my recent posts, I am in the Christmas card mode!  Those of you that have been following along for a while, may also know that I have been participating in a FB group called The One Little Tag Craft Challenge  .  I started off the year very diligently, but as the year has progressed and life has gotten busy, I have not been posting as often, but I have not abandoned my very first challenge, and really my inspiration to even start my blog (along with wanting to share my art with my sister).  So, while these next few posts are not tags, they are still inspired by Jenny Barnett Rohs and her FB group.  Her most recent challenge was a colour challenge based on the photo below.  She used a colour mixer app to draw a colour scheme from the photo of the pot of fall mums.  I have based some Christmas cards on this colour scheme.  I love the fact that these cards don't follow the "traditional" Christmas colour s!

I first blended some distress ink on my background.  Then I splattered some water, with a little perfect pearls mixed in, over the inked card.  One of the fun things about distress ink is how it reacts with water.  I die cut my elements out of black card and a light tan card, to mimic the colour challenge.  I glued the die cut images together, offset just a touch, to give a highlighted look.  I assembled all my pieces and layered my card with the same light coloured tan card , a black layer and then onto a cream coloured purchased card.
 I used wilted violet, picked raspberry and abandonded coral

I used a Lawn Fawn and a Cherry Lynn Designs die for this card.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you have enjoyed my latest Christmas card!  If you did, please check out my next few posts with the other Christmas cards in this set created using the colour challenge from The One Little Tag Craft Challenge
