I took a whimsical turn for today’s card. I used a whimsical stamp set, Seasons of Whimsy, and used very non-traditional colors as well. I am still surprised that I really like how it ended up.
So what do you think? Did I go over the top on my color choices? I surprised even myself. I am usually more the traditional Christmas colors. But I strayed pretty far on this one!
I will try to quickly explain my madness. I started with a watercolor wash using Wild Wasabi Ink on Shimmery White card stock. I then stamped the ornament in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. The string is in Wild Wasabi. I watercolored the highlights of the ornament with an Aqua Painter and the Melon Mambo Ink. I will also confess that the sparkles stamped in both colors were an after thought. Actually they were after I discovered a stray Melon Mambo to the bottom left of the ornament. So a stamped sparkle comes to the rescue. Then I realized I really liked the addition. So a win/win!!
