Less is More #432 - Colour Challenge

 Hi there and welcome to Saturday which means a new challenge over at Less is More.
We have a colour challenge for you -

I obviously love making Christmas cards and these colours were perfect for me!

I have made a few cards to help inspire you -

Card #1
This card is very simply made. A die cut sentiment with silver mirror card, a few stamped snowflakes, then sequins to finish it off.
(the snowflakes are from a CAS-ual Friday set called Sugar Plum Fairy)

Card #2
Once again, a die cut sentiment (this time covered with a clear sparkle pen), a small stamped sentiment, then plenty of sequins :)

Card #3
I created a watercolour panel using brushos and mica powder. I used the ink smooshing technique which produced a beautiful piece. Then I die cut the letters out, popped them up with foam tape, stamped the sentiment, and added yep you guessed it sequins :)

Where is the gold. In different light, the gold mica powder makes an appearance and looks beautiful!

Card #4
Using my left over red and gold brusho panel, I created a small panel, die cut the sentiment with gold mirror card and stamped my sentiment. No sequins this time!

Here's a closer look at that gold mica mixed in with the brushos.

Our guest designer for this challenge is the amazing and wonderful Kathy K!
