52 Christmas Card Throwdown – February 10, 2018 – Colour Challenge

Hello Everyone. This month I am in charge of selecting all the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenges. Nothing says cold like the blues. I love monochrome cards and challenge you to try to make a card that focuses on using blue tones. Use as many or few as you want. You can use inks, watercolours, markers, pencils, colour stock etc. to show blue. For my card, I used a fun stamp by Whipper Snapper called, “A Polar Bear Party.” I stamped my image then coloured it with various Copic Blue/Blue Green markers. I also added a little Salty Ocean Oxide ink around the outside edge. I backed the image on white cardstock that I blended Salty Ocean, Broken China, and Peacock Feathers. I flicked on some water droplets for that little extra. \finally I backed the card front on blue cardstock. The sentiment is from Sweet n Sassy – A Cardinal’s Christmas.
