Quilting Color Challenge

I finally have been up to stamping since my sinus surgery on 12/18, which has really zapped me of energy and keeps me at the mercy of pain meds from time to time. I have, surprisingly, made it through three Christmas gatherings so far and will be having another today at our house.

This card took me a couple of hours to finish. There are a few factors that played into that 1) a toddler 2) getting into the flow of creating again 3) a SCS color challenge that I decided to use as my inspiration (toughest one I have done so far).

The colors stumped me right away. (Orchid Opulence, Cameo Coral, So Saffron) Honestly, I'm still not fond of the combo and don't know if I am that sold on the outcome. I made the colors softer by watercoloring the quilt squares, then coatings with UTEE.

Stamps: Quilter's Sampler Additions (PTI), Heart Prints (PTI)

Angel Got a Face Lift

People get face lifts in order to improve their image, right. Some people tend to do it so much that they almost morph into completely different looking individuals. Well, my angel in the previous post got a face lift. This was a minor one...she didn't go under the knife. lol! I tend to like her better this way, but, of course, that's my opinion. If you liked her better the other way -- great --if you didn't like her at all -- that's nothing a face lift can change. ;) Must have been her personality. :P

She got a DP change, which changed the colors of Stickles I used, added whites dot outlines and left out the corner punch details. (I also used my Sakura Stardust Gel Pen to outline her main image and halo, but it didn't show on the photo.)

I think she's gonna be okay.

BTW, in the basket behind her are about 80 more of her little friends to go over and spread joy to others for Christmas.

Stamps: Christmas Silhouettes (Inkadinkado), sentiment (PTI)
Ink: Palette Noir
Paper: Real Red, Kraft, Wassail DP (Basic Grey)
Accessories: Stickles (Xmas Red, Cinnamon, Lime, Gold), White Gel Pen, Sakura Stardust Gel Pen
