CD 419 - Gnome Christmas

Welcome to Colour Dare Challenge #419!

We have a tic tac toe board this week - select a row, column or diagonal and use those colours in your project. You are welcome to add any other colours that are ON THE BOARD. Please note that black, white and grey are free to use. 

I have 4 different tac tac toes... left column (Glacier, Sapphire and Raspberry), bottom row (Raspberry, Evergreen, Clover) and both diagonals (Glacier, Gold, Clover and Flamingo, Gold and Raspberry. The only colours I didn't use were Blue Belle and Lilac.

I am still working on Christmas cards - and this was an opportunity to create another one!

I used the Gnome for Christmas stamp set for the gnome, the mushroom tree and the sentiment. I coloured the images using various colours on the board. The card design is from Make It From Your Heart - Vol. 4. I chose some patterned papers in Sapphire and Glacier and mounted them on a piece of Evergreen glitter paper. The images were adhered with foam tape and I added a few gold sequins and brushed some areas with the Gold Shimmer Brush. 

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

We can’t wait to see what you create!
