Ornament - Bugaboo/Incy Wincy

Afternoon chums!

I hope you all had a pleasant weekend.

We have another great challenge for you over at Incy Wincy this week, Purple & Yellow! Many of you will probably think that it's an unusual colour combo, but I like mixing up colours that you normally wouldn't use together.

This week's sponsor is the fantabulous Bugaboo Stamps!

The lucky prize winner will receive 7 (yes, 7) free digis! Wow!

I used the Ornament image. Here is my take on the challenge theme...

What you need...

Digi stamp: Ornament - Bugaboo Stamps
Card stock: white, yellow gold
Patterned papers: Frosty Friends 6x6 Paper Pad - Doodlebug
Die: Christmas Trims (659912) - Sizzix
Promarkers: Mustard, Purple, Sleigh Bell
Ink pad: Onyx Black - Versafine
Baker's twine: yellow
Stamp: Christmas sentiment
Jingle bells: purple, yellow

What you do...

Print two baubles, then copy & paste another, re-size so it is smaller than the other two, flip it over so that it facing the opposite way.

Colour one of the larger baubles in Sleigh Bell and the other two in Purple. Shade the hanger section in with Mustard. Cut out the baubles.

Cover the bottom of a white 12cm square top fold blank with a 4cm deep piece of yellow gold card.

Die cut the scallop border in purple dotty paper and stick to the top of the yellow gold panel.
Wrap yellow twine around the blank above the scallops, thread a yellow and a purple jingle bell onto the twine and tie in a bow at the left.

Arrange and stick the baubles to the top of the blank.

Stamp a sentiment in the lower right corner.

I decided to go with rich golden yellows rather than bright yellows. A very regal combination methinks :o)

For some terrific inspiration, why not pop on over to the Incy Wincy Challenge and see what gorgeous makes my lovely teamies have created?

Well, that's me for the moment. Thanks for popping by and enjoy the rest of your day. xx
