Christmas in Purple and Green

Welcome to this week's Colour Dare challenge!

It's another Tic-Tac-Toe board. This one uses many of the colours from the Every Little Thing paper pack, which is one of my favourite sets of papers in a long time!

I used the two diagonal grids: Wisteria, Silver and Evergreen plus Mint, Silver and Julep

I coloured in the open sections on the floral paper in the same style as what is already done - kind of a messy, watercolour appearance. That is really tough for me as I always colour exactly within the lines... 

Using the Multi Square Window Thin Cut, I cut out the centre section of that die, placed some white cardstock behind and stamped the images I wanted. They were coloured using the same colour scheme as the background paper. A large die with the word Holiday was cut and placed across the images. The word Wishes is on a small banner in the bottom corner. I used the Mint Shimmer Brush on the large word and a close-up of that can be seen below. A few gems and some embellishing thread finished off the card.

Come and join us at Colour Dare and show us how you use the grid shown above.
